Eagan, Minn. (March 15, 2021) – In the month of March, CaringBridge donors can have twice the impact during the spring giving campaign beginning March 15 through March 31. The campaign features two generous matching gifts donated by a family who has felt the powerful impact of CaringBridge. This family will double donations received on March 15 and 16 up to $10,000 and March 30 and 31 up to $15,000.
CaringBridge is supported by tens of thousands of donors who use CaringBridge, understand the value it provides and keep it going. Nearly 90 percent of all CaringBridge funding comes from the generosity of people who have used the network themselves to share their own health journey or the journey of a friend or family member. Since 1997, donors have supported nearly 900,000 CaringBridge websites that have received a combined 2.5 billion visits.
“CaringBridge is grateful to all our donors who provide a space of help, healing and support to millions of people during the toughest times in life,” said Liwanag Ojala, CaringBridge CEO. “A donation means providing families a safe, secure and supportive space so that no one goes through a health journey alone.”
A donation to CaringBridge allows any family facing a health journey the ability to create a free personal website that is ad-free and secure.
