Giving Tuesday is your opportunity to pledge your support to Devon Air Ambulance, by being part of a global day of giving something back.
Giving Tuesday immediately follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so after doing some early Christmas shopping or buying yourself something special, you can give something back to your local community. Giving Tuesday is a day all about supporting a special charity and we think we fit the bill.
As an independent charity, we rely wholly on the generosity of people, businesses and the communities of Devon to raise the vital funds needed to keep our helicopters airborne. It is with thanks to people like you that this year we celebrated 25 years of service and are continually looking at how we can even further improve your Air Ambulance service.
What Can You Do for Giving Tuesday?
You might be thinking that with Christmas around the corner money is tight, but Giving Tuesday isn’t just about donating money – it’s about the local community donating whatever they can to help support the charity of their choice. In that spirit, here are some ideas about how you can get involved and what you can do to support us on Giving Tuesday…
Shop with Savoo
You could also try shopping through Savoo! to donate to the Devon Air Ambulance. Every time you shop through Savoo they will donate 50% of their commission on the sale to your chosen charity. We’d be delighted to be selected!
Organise a Fundraising Event
You could organise a fundraising event to help raise vital funds: such as a coffee morning, cake sale, disco or car boot sale. The list is endless! To find out more and learn how you can set up your own fundraising event and help to support Devon Air Ambulance, visit our your event page.
