Today is Giving Tuesday, a great chance to support worthy causes around the world. We sent the message below to supporters last night and wanted to share it here on our blog as well. Please support us this #GivingTuesday and share this post with friends and family!
Giving Tuesday is a day for donating to worthy causes. Today andTuesday, tax-deductible gifts to Jubilee are worth twice as much because all gifts are matched up to $15,000.
I imagine you are probably receiving lots of emails like this one, asking you to give. So in the spirit of not flooding your inbox with too much information, here are three simple reasons to give to Jubilee this Giving Tuesday:
1. Big Bang for Your Buck: Jubilee wins major victories on a modest budget, which means your donation has an incredible impact. We recently moved the White House to call for $100 million in debt relief for Ebola-impacted countries. $100 million on our budget means your tax-deductible $100 gift to Jubilee = $26,246 for poor communities in West Africa.
2. Getting to the Root of the Problem: Jubilee addresses the root causes of global poverty. When you give to Jubilee, you're not just addressing short-term problems, you're investing in long-term sustainable solutions. No matter what you care about - the environment, corruption, conflict - Jubilee's work impacts the root economic causes of human crisis from West Africa to the Philippines to the Middle East.
3. Double Your Impact: On this Giving Tuesday, a generous anonymous donor is matching all gifts to Jubilee up to $15,000. Whether you give a tax-deductible gift of $1000, $500, $40 or $10 - it's matched - doubling your impact and investment, up to $15,000.
