Can you imagine not being able to go to the doctor when you’re sick because you need to save money for food? Thousands of families are faced with the choice between health care and groceries every day. We envision a future where everyone who needs care can count on us, but we need your help. On May 24, will you join us in our mission to help children and families receive health care?
On May 24, OneWorld will once again participate in Omaha Gives!, a one-day online fundraising event organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. This year, the funds we raise will directly benefit our patients, so we need your help as we try to meet our goal.
Donations of all amounts help our patients: $10 buys diapers for our Baby Boutique, $15 buys a flu shot, $25 buys a child a visit to a School-Based Health Center, $50 buys a child a dental visit, and the list goes on. No matter what amount you are able to give, your gift will have a lasting impact for an underserved member of our community.
Donating to OneWorld through Omaha Gives! is easy—just visit our page and click “donate now” to help underserved families. If you choose to give through our Omaha Gives! page anytime between May 1st and May 24th, your donation will still count toward our May 24th total. In order to maximize your gift, please consider waiting to give until 9 p.m. on May 24th. People who give to OneWorld online between 9 and 10 p.m. will help us increase our chances of being an hourly winner. If we are selected as one of that hour’s winners, Omaha Gives! will give OneWorld an additional $535, which would help the money we raise go even further for our patients.
OneWorld staff members will be cheering you on throughout Omaha Gives! day on our social media pages, so be sure to “like” and follow our pages for updates about our progress on Omaha Gives! day. As a bonus, when you make a donation to OneWorld, you will receive an “I gave to OneWorld” graphic in your email, so we encourage you to make that image your social media profile picture for the day as a way of publicly showing your support. Please consider sharing our social media posts about Omaha Gives! on your own page, too, in order to help us spread the word about our campaign.
Thank you in advance for your support; we are grateful for your generosity and your willingness to help us reach our goal!
