At Special Olympics, we’ve seen first hand what the power of sport can do for an athlete. It really is life changing. We’ve watched people score their first goal, run across the finish line, and nail a perfect routine. The smile on their face is indescribable.
These are just a few of the stories Special Olympics helps creates. But we can only do it with your help. And for the rest of this year, your gift will be TRIPLE matched, so now you can help three times as many athletes find the joy of sports!
But you have to hurry, this triple-match campaign only lasts until midnight on Dec. 31. Don’t miss your chance to triple the good you can do, especially since your gift to Special Olympics is 100% tax deductible.
Don’t miss you chance to help an athlete get off the bench and into the game! Click here to donate today!
We have big news! We’re celebrating Giving Tuesday today with a limited chance to have your gift MATCHED. This means before the day is over you have the chance to help three times the number of athletes.Give now!
Giving Tuesday has always been a big day for Special Olympics. With your support, we’ve been able to come together to support athletes across Louisiana to ensure they have what they need to step off the sidelines and into the game. Here are three suggested gifts to make sure we can continue this great work together in 2017:
1. $19.81 will be tripled to give training to an athlete for an entire year
2. Your gift $99.05 will be tripled to train an athlete for the next FIVE years
3. And a gift of $198.10 will be TRIPLED to train an athlete for the next DECADE.
The work we can do together this #GivingTuesday is unparalleled with this match, but time is running out. Step up and help three times the number of athletes today.
P.S. Your money is 100% tax-deductible and 100% TRIPLED. But this #GivingTuesday offer only lasts until midnight tonight. Don’t wait.
