CJE SeniorLife Joins #GivingTuesday & #ILGive Movements to Encourage Day of Giving on Nov. 27, 2018

Support for CJE helps sustain vital programs and services for seniors in metropolitan Chicago. Your gift will make twice the difference for #GivingTuesday!

CHICAGO, November 12, 2018 – On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, November 27, 2018, CJE SeniorLife is joining the #GivingTuesday movement, an effort that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—from individuals and families to nonprofits, schools, religious organizations, small businesses, and corporations—to transform how people think about the holiday season.

The 7th annual #GivingTuesday will utilize the impact of social media to create a global moment dedicated to giving—similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become synonymous with holiday shopping days. CJE is also joining other Illinois organizations in the state-wide #ILGive campaign.

CJE helps more than 20,000 older adults and family caregivers throughout metropolitan Chicago annually. Over two-thirds of CJE’s clients receive free or subsidized programs and services, and donations support CJE’s mission to help older adults age with dignity and respect.

The Retirement Research Foundation will again be generously matching up to $5,000 for CJE's #GivingTuesday campaign. Donations made to CJE between November 19-30 will make twice the difference to seniors in need. A $36 gift today will provide a home-delivered meal, a ride to a doctor’s appointment, or a free exercise program or health screening to a senior in the community.

CJE is encouraging its Board, Associate Board, staff, volunteers, and their friends and families to spread the #GivingTuesday message on social media by sharing posts with the hashtag #GivingTuesday or #ILGive. Learn more about CJE’s #GivingTuesday campaign at www.cje.net/givingtuesday, and share CJE’s #GivingTuesday posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Thank you for your support on this global day of giving!
