Eagan, Minn. (June 8, 2021) – CaringBridge is kicking off the summer with a special campaign where donations made to the organization will have double the impact. Beginning on Tuesday, June 8, and running through Wednesday, June 16, the campaign offers two opportunities for donations to be matched. Board member and CaringBridge user, Pete Segar, along with his wife, Kim, have made a pledge to match all donations up to $10,000 on June 8 and 9, and up to $15,000 on June 15 and 16.
Donations made to CaringBridge provide strength to families in need of a safe, protected, ad-free space to share their stories. These donations allow more than 300,000 people facing a health journey every day the ability to connect with family and friends anytime. Receiving support from family and friends is one of the most important aspects of any health journey and healing process, and generous donations made to CaringBridge allow this essential support to continue.
The Segars’ personal connection with CaringBridge began years ago when they created a site to share information regarding Pete’s cancer diagnosis, treatments and remission with their family and friends. Today, Pete is cancer-free, and is grateful for every day.
“CaringBridge was truly a blessing to both of us, and that is why we have been strong advocates and financial supporters of this nonprofit-organization and its mission every year since then,” said Kim Segar. “I truly believe that CaringBridge was as much a part of Pete’s success in fighting cancer as were his medical doctors.”
CaringBridge offers free personal websites allowing communities to rally around people at any stage of their health journey. The platform gives patients and caregivers a free, private, and secure opportunity to update friends and family, ask for help and get support and encouragement. With support from donors through match programs, CaringBridge is able to continue delivering the resources people need during their own or their loved one’s path to healing.
