MillionsforChesed, billed as the largest day of giving for Chesed in history, has only a short time left until it ends at 12 Noon EST today!
This all-or-nothing multi-organization online fundraising event has raised more than $2.5M. All donations are quadrupled. But, all must meet their goals in order to collect.
Tomchei Shabbos of Queens met its $100K goal first, more than doubling its goal after just a few hours. Tomche Shabbos of Rockland County exceeded its $500K goal raising $567K, and Ahavas Yisrael of Baltimore met its $600K goal and upped their goal to $750K, meeting that goal as well. Bikur Cholim of Lakewood met its $300K goal and increased to $360K and CSB Care exceeded its $60K goal, raising $69K. At midnight, 11 organizations were still moving toward their goals and reaching out to the community for support.
The 12 Noon EST finale is looming, and not all campaigns have been funded, but more than $2.5 million has been raised.
These organizations excel as community-based Tomchei Shabboses, Bikur Cholims, Hachnosos Kallahs, special needs residences and services, services for the Jewish blind, and special clown services for sick children. Their specialty is not fundraising. They have gone out on a limb to raise more money, on less time, with less expense – so that their organizations can spend more time supporting members of our communities.
Be a part of history. Help ensure that all organizations meet their goals. All donations will be quadrupled at: www.millionsforchesed.com. Choose one campaign or donate to all incomplete campaigns.
