COVID-19 has blindsided many, not only in our community, but people all over the country and around the world. There is an opportunity for us to come together. We need your help to continue improving lives. That is why we are participating in #GivingTuesdayNow

GivingTuesday is an organization that has been around since 2012 whose mission is to build a world where generosity is a part of everyday life. Every year GivingTuesday lands right before the holiday season and is a day where people can show appreciation for the causes and organizations that they care about. In 2020 GivingTuesday has grown to generate more than one billion dollars for people and organizations all over the world. They realized that many nonprofits are struggling during the onset of COVID-19 and saw that action needed to be taken. That is why they launched #GivingTuesdayNow which will take place on May 5th, 2020. Organizations from all around the world will be participating and we want you to show your generosity by donating to NYCID. You will be able to see how your money directly helps those in need in New York City with a concentration on Staten Island.

Donating is simple, just text “IMPROVE” to 51555 or click here and select the dollar amount that you would like to give. It is an easy and safe process in order to let your generosity flow. Even if you don’t have the money to give please share this message. The work we do for Staten Island is important and must forge on. In the “forgotten” borough we serve the people who have continuously been overlooked. Any amount of money helps us achieve our mission of improving people’s lives.
