Supporters of the Carson Higgins Memorial Foundation showed their commitment on Giving Tuesday, as donations totaled more than $21,000 in less than 24 hours. Additionally, friends of the Foundation helped spread awareness by sharing social media posts and telling their friends and family about CHMF.
The dollars raised will go even further, as Giving Tuesday donations will be matched by an anonymous donor, and Facebook will also provide a match for funds donated through the its platform.
“We are so grateful to everyone who participated in our Giving Tuesday campaign. Your gifts fuel our mission and provide hope and comfort to families and children facing cancer and other life challenges,” said Debbie Higgins, CEO and co-founder of the Carson Higgins Memorial Foundation. “Your support energizes us in our work to honor the legacy of Carson by paying it forward to children in need.”
