Matching Update

Updated December 20, 2021

Wow! We are so excited and humbled to see all of this generosity first-hand. Since last week, we were able to match over $10,000+ in donations, with multiple fundraisers hitting their $1,000 maximum match contribution. That also means there is a lot more giving to do, whether by donating to a fundraiser or creating one of your own!
