The Gates Foundation partners with Facebook to match your donation to PWCF today! #GivingTuesday

28 Nov

In support of #GivingTuesday, Facebook has partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to match up to $2 million in donations that are made on Facebook to eligible U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Facebook has also waived all fees on donations that are made to eligible U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits on Facebook from 12:00 AM EST on November 28, 2017 to 11:59 PM HST on November 28, 2017.
Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) approved by Facebook to benefit from this extraordinary opportunity. Now we need you to raise funds for our Barb’s Bag of Chemo Care & Comfort service project.

BAG IT for the CAUSE-Los Angeles 2017

Each bag costs approximately $50 to assemble and distribute. No amount is too small (or too big!) to help us support, encourage, and comfort breast cancer patients in treatment, particularly those in marginalized communities.
