(November 25, 2019) This Giving Tuesday, we need your help to make a big impact. For the 22,000 American women diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, and the 200,000 living with this disease, we’re asking you to join us in #GivingTeal. Here’s how you can help.
Spread the word and fundraise for cures in the season of giving! OCRA Heroes across the country are giving back for the holidays by fundraising with friends and family. From virtual campaigns to holiday dinners, the possibilities are endless and every dollar makes a difference. Start your own OCRA Holiday Hero campaign today!
On December 3rd, Facebook will match donations up to $7 million. That means when you and your friends give to OCRA, your gifts will be doubled – and have 2X the impact. Don’t miss this chance to do twice the good with one donation!
- Want to personalize your fundraiser? Great! You can create your fundraiser here. Feel free to download our #GivingTeal Facebook fundraiser covers below (just right click and Save As) or use your own. Then write your own description, about why ovarian cancer is a meaningful cause for you.
- Need a writing prompt? Here’s some copy to get you started.
“Friends, as some of you already know, ovarian cancer is a cause that’s close to my heart. (Write a few words about your connection here.) My life has been touched by this disease and I want to make a difference. I’m asking if you would please join me in making a #GivingTuesday donation to end ovarian cancer. 100% of your gift will benefit the cause – Facebook does not take any fees from your gift. Your dollars will benefit critical ovarian cancer research, advocacy for policies that help women with this disease, and programs that support survivors and families. Please join me in #GivingTeal. It would mean so much to me. Thank you!”
- Show your friends you support women with ovarian cancer by adding our frame. Just go to your profile picture and click “Update.” Then click “Add Frame” and search for “ocrahope”. Then click “Use as profile picture.” You’re all set!
- Did you know you can attach a Donate button to any regular post on Facebook? If you don’t want to share or create a whole fundraiser, it’s an easy way to ask friends to give. Just start a post like normal, then click the three dots along the bottom of the text field and choose “Support Nonprofit.” Search for “ocrahope” and publish. Now you’re fundraising!
- Donate to our limited-time Facebook Fundraiser, coming soon!
- After you donate, share with friends and ask them to give. Remind them why this is a cause that’s important to you.
- Don’t want to wait until December 3rd to donate? Don’t worry, you can get started now! The match doesn’t kick in until December 3rd but your gift will still make a big difference.
- Make a secure online donation at ocrahope.org/donate. You can give in honor or in memory of a loved one, and if you have their email address, we’ll instantly send them the #GivingTeal e-card of your choice, notifying them of your generous gift. Or, enter their mailing address and we’ll send them a notification letter.
- Put on your best teal, the color of ovarian cancer awareness, and snap a photo. Post to social media and tag #GivingTeal. If we see it, we may share with our community!
Every donation helps OCRA defeat ovarian cancer by funding cures, advocating for and supporting women fighting ovarian cancer. Thank you for joining us in the fight.
