Now that we are more than halfway through April, our push for a strong Big Day of Giving (BDOG) is fully underway! BDOG is an annual 24-hour, community-wide movement that unites the region’s nonprofit sector to help raise unrestricted funds for the organizations that strengthen the capital area.

Since 2013, the giving day has generated nearly $65 million for more than 700 local nonprofits! So, it is no surprise that BDOG is one of Joshua’s House Volunteer Hospice’s most important fundraising pushes of the year. This year, we set an ambitious goal of $50,000, and we need your help to reach it! Your donations go towards providing Sacramento’s terminally ill homeless people with the compassion and care we all deserve at the end of our lives.

The BDOG donation period starts April 21. Fortunately, donating your money is not the only way to help us achieve our BDOG goal. Simply interacting with and sharing our content goes a long way in our efforts too! Please consider visiting our social channels – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – and sharing our BDOG content. Here is a list of actions you can do to help us spread the word and reach our fundraising goals:

  1. Retweet our BDOG Tweets
  2. Share our BDOG Facebook posts
  3. Sign up for and share our newsletter
  4. Donate towards our fundraising goal between April 21and May 5

Give with a Golden 1 Credit Union debit or credit card to boost your impact. Golden 1 Credit Union is matching its members’ gifts!

Thank you very much for your continued support of Joshua’s House. Our mission of ensuring no one dies alone on the street is fueled by compassionate supporters like you.
