GivingTuesday – December 3, 2019
TODAY is the day! It’s the day that you can make an impact on the children and adults served by UCP of Greater Cleveland. With your support, we can raise funds for programs that change the lives of children with significant physical disabilities through expert and tailored therapies as well as adult programming that leads to meaningful employment.
There are two ways you can give to UCP of Greater Cleveland TODAY:
1) Make a monetary donation at www.giveucp.givesmart.com. We hope to raise $5,000 today, and every little bit helps! You can also contact your Human Resources Department to inquire whether your company offers matching gifts, which increases the impact of your contribution!
2) Donate an item of need from our Virtual Giving Tree on Amazon.com! Go to http://a.co/08p2jVG to select the item(s) you wish to purchase. Click “Add to Cart” and choose the UCP of Greater Cleveland address during checkout so that it automatically ships to us. It’s that simple! Examples of needed items include games for our group homes, therapy equipment for our pediatric clinic and Amazon Echo Shows for our adult classrooms. Be sure to log into AmazonSmile so that you can double your giving (in addition to the item, AmazonSmile makes a donation for every purchase to UCP).
Once you have made your donation, you can take an #unselfie (a selfless selfie) to show how and why you are giving. Post your #unselfie on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and remember to tag us using @ucpcleveland and the hashtags #UCPCLE #GivingTuesday. You can download the #unselfie template HERE.
With your donation to UCP, you will help change the lives of children and adults with disabilities in Northeast Ohio.
