Giving Tuesday Now: Because Cancer Patients Need our Help Now More Than Ever.

Have you heard of Giving Tuesday Now?

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity taking place on May 5 that was created as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

When my friends at the Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) asked the Bob’s team if we’d team up with them to fund-raise on #GivingTuesdayNow, I gave them an enthusiastic puppet thumbs-up!

While we’ve all been impacted by the pandemic, the fact is, the patients and families that JAF and many of our other non-profit partners are being disproportionately hurt. With their immune systems already weakened from treatment, cancer patients face a higher risk of possible infection from the virus. The financial hardship faced by most cancer patients and their families before COVID-19 has ballooned under the economic instability caused by the pandemic.

This GivingTuesday Now partnership will provide the opportunity for JAF supporters to come together as a united community to make a real difference. Bob’s has committed to being JAF’s matching gift partner for the day, which means we’ll match every donation up to $25,000. Together, we will help to ensure that cancer patients who are being directly impacted by this pandemic won’t have to worry about housing, food, or transportation.

To learn more, visit our fundraising page on JAF’s website.

If you have another cause you feel passionate about, consider joining the #GivingTuesdayNow movement. Even if you aren’t able to donate, consider other ways to “give”: Share kindness with your neighbors, show gratitude to healthcare workers, service providers, and other essential workers, or use social media to spread the word about GivingTuesday Now!

About the author / Bob

I consider myself the luckiest spokespuppet ever because I get to talk about the thing I love the most everyday – furniture! Tufted headboards, rustic finishes, the difference between a sofa and a couch (yes, there is a difference)… I could go on and on. Oh, I just love furniture and I’m SO excited that I have this blog to share my passion with you! It may take me a little longer to create posts – have you ever tried typing with clay hands – but I look forward to talking furniture with you!
