We are very pleased to kick-off our 2018 Fundraising Campaign with this exciting news! Facebook and PayPal are matching donations given through Facebook on #GivingTuesday, November 27. They are awarding up to $250,000 in matching funds per organization on a first-come, first-serve timeline. So set your alarms and get ready to make an early-bird donation at 8:00 a.m. Eastern/5:00 a.m. Pacific this Tuesday morning! All donations must be made through our Facebook page in order to qualify for this amazing match! Share our link with friends and family, and ask them to support the Hypersomnia Foundation’s mission of raising awareness and educating others about idiopathic hypersomnia and advocating for continued research in the field of sleep disorders.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that encourages philanthropy and celebrates non-profits and the generosity of individuals worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
We will also be kicking off our annual PJs & Pillows Campaign! It’s a simple, fun, and effective way to promote #IH awareness and your commitment to finding a cure. Simply print or make your own “Let’s Get #BeyondSleepy!” sign, and post a selfie with your PJs and Pillow. Challenge friends and families to do the same and donate on #GivingTuesday to double the impact of your gift! Together we can make a difference, and the Hypersomnia Foundation is here to lead the way.
