Double Your Impact on #GivingTuesday!

Posted by on October 23, 2019 - 0 Comments

You have a special opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life this giving season.

JJ’s List and our parent company, Search Inc., have a goal to raise $20,000 by midnight on Dec 3, #GivingTuesday! Your donation, in any amount, will help us reach our goal!

From Nov 1 – Dec 3, any online gift of $175 and over will be matched by the Coleman Foundation!

What is #GivingTuesday?

  • #GivingTuesday started as a day for anyone, anywhere to give, and it’s grown into the biggest giving movement in the world.
  • Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday takes place on December 3, 2019 this year.
  • On #GivingTuesday, millions of people across the globe will come together to give back to the causes they believe in and the communities where they live.

Here, in our little corner of the world, we’re asking our community to come together to champion life without boundaries for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Behind every gift to Search Inc. there is a story. A story of someone who is able to live a full, connected life without boundaries – like Jessica.

Jessica has been nurturing her creative expression at Search for almost 10 years. Through attending Visibility Arts, Jessica has strengthened her skill as an artist. Her exploration of “interiors” – of people and buildings – has been complemented by an interest in perspective that has added a new depth and dimension to her work.

Outside of her artwork, Jessica is an avid bowler and competes as part of the Special Olympics bowling league. Jessica draws strength from the close bonds she shares with her family. She is a proud aunt, sister, and granddaughter.

The close relationships with family, the friendships developed through participation in Special Olympics, the excitement of discovery through art – these are the experiences that make Jessica’s life full and connected.

This giving season, will you help Jessica and the 500 other individuals served by Search and JJ’s List live without boundaries?
