YouGiveGoods' community starts 2016 strong
A letter from our President, Lisa Tomasi
Giving really is contagious!

We continue to be amazed by the generosity and enthusiasm of our YGG community.

The 2015 holiday giving season saw food, toy and cold weather gear drives raise a record number of much-needed goods for nonprofits across the country. We were thrilled to receive some thank you photos full of beaming kids with their new toys!
But 2016 ushered in on a disturbing note with the unfolding of the dire situation in Flint, Michigan. Individuals and corporations wanted to help and YGG was there.

Most notably, the employees of Meritain Health, an Aetna Company, wanted to support their fellow Michiganders and start a water drive ASAP. They quickly raised almost 80,000 bottles of water (that's two semi-trailers full!) for residents of Flint.

Feeling inspired? You can start a drive for the residents of Flint or for any charity close to your heart. Our hope is that the simplicity and transparency of YouGiveGoods helps get more tangible support to those in need.

Thank you for being a continuous source of inspiration for us. We can't wait to see what great things spring has in store.

Happy Giving!

Lisa Tomasi
