Tuesday, December 3, is GivingTuesday, an annual 24-hour day of giving fueled by the power of social media to support and champion causes millions of people believe in. Join us in celebrating and supporting North Star Reach by participating in our GivingMooseDay, named after the “mooseness” spirit that shines bright whenever good people come together to make good things happen. On this annual day of giving, you can help by spreading the word about the power of camp for children with serious health challenges and encouraging friends and family to support camp with a gift.

You can help by following these four easy steps:

1.) Connect with North Star Reach on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

If you aren’t already connected with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, be sure to follow us before December 3. That way you can help share our #givingmooseday social posts. Facebook friends will be able access our exclusive GivingMooseDay frames, as detailed below.

2.) Become a GivingMooseDay Influencer

A GivingMooseDay Influencer is someone who volunteers to promote North Star Reach across their social networks on Tuesday December 3. You can do that by sharing our posts and tagging a few of your friends who may be willing to donate on our website to support camp experiences for kids with serious health challenges, at no cost to their families.

3) Moose-ify Your Profile Picture & Raise $25 for Camp

We’re excited to announce that a generous donor will donate $25 to North Star Reach every time someone shares one of our custom GivingMooseDay Facebook frames on December 3, up to 200 participants. Together, we can raise $5,000 in a single day of giving, simply by sharing a little bit of camp love!

It’s super simple and you’ll help to raise the dollars we depend on to bring life-changing camp experiences to our campers and their families.
