Sammy’s Superheroes Hits Goal of $43K Through #GivingTuesday
On November 27, during the international day of online giving known as #GivingTuesday, Sammy’s Superheroes Foundation (www.sammyssuperheroes.org) rallied all of their sponsors and supporters to reach their fundraising goal of $43,000!
The day started with an early morning breakfast fundraiser in their hometown of Columbus, NE. Sammy’s Superheroes then spent the day visiting and reaching out to their greatest supporters to raise as much money for childhood cancer research as possible. Executive director, Jeremy Stanislav, made a visit to Time Harrison Financial Group and they did a $500 match for that hour. Fusion Medical Staffing, with presenting sponsor Glow Gold Omaha, used Facebook Live to help encourage other businesses to get involved in the fight against childhood cancer. This sparked more online donations.
In addition, there were supporters from multiple states setting goals and raising funds on Facebook and through crowdfunding efforts. By the end of the day, the Sammy’s Superheroes staff and board of directors were overwhelmed by the amount of support everyone had given.
Sammy’s Superheroes Foundation would like to thank everyone for their support, not only this holiday season but throughout 2018!
