At Health Volunteers Overseas, we envision a world where everyone, everywhere has access to high-quality, affordable care delivered by local providers. To achieve this vision, we rely heavily on the members of our global health community, including our volunteers, trainees, partners, sponsors, and supporters. Whether you donate your time as a volunteer, make a monetary contribution to our mission, or help us expand our impact by sharing HVO with your friends and family, your support is vital to our efforts to improve global health by providing education and professional development opportunities to health workers in resource-scarce countries.
November 27, 2018 is #GivingTuesday, an annual day of giving created as an extension of this season of gratitude. #GivingTuesday is not just a time to give to the causes you support, but an opportunity to celebrate these causes by sharing them with your networks on social media. This year, we set a goal to raise $5,000 on #GivingTuesday, and we need your help! Whether you make a gift to HVO, submit a video telling us why you support HVO, or share our work with your friends, family and colleagues on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn—we appreciate your support!
This year, you can increase your impact if you give via the “Donate” button on HVO’s Facebook page. Facebook and PayPal are matching donations made on Facebook for a total of up to $7 million dollars beginning at 8 am ET on November 27.
Your support this #GivingTuesday and every day matters, not just to HVO staff, volunteers, and leadership, but to the thousands of local health care providers our volunteers train each year and to the millions of patients those providers serve over the course of their careers. Your support enables us to continue to transform lives and create a legacy of care – thank you!
