Giving Tuesday Now (a call for help to mitigate Covid-19)

June 30, 2020


Last week we wrapped up another part of our Giving Tuesday Now campaign! Many thanks to those who donated through Give Gab or through GoFundMe. We raised $255 from these two platforms combined. Thank you for your support and please look for further opportunities to join the mission and work of preparing children for success in their lives.

Giving Tuesday Now Impact Report, released today.


Many thanks for the wonderful engagement yesterday! Check out our Facebook page to see the 24 hour flood of appreciation released by the devoted community of Crossroads Center for Children during our #GivingTuesdayNow #ThankFest. We also raised some money through our fundraising campaigns!

If you didn’t get a chance to hop on yesterday, no worries. You can still add your comments to the posts to express appreciation to anyone you’d like to! As well, our fundraising campaigns are still up and open for business! Scroll down to click through to any and all!


3.19.2020 Mark your calendar today for GIVING TUESDAY/ NOW! 5.5.2020 JOIN US IN A THANK FEST! 

On May 5th, for the first time ever, #GivingTuesday coordinators are implementing, GivingTuesdayNow | A Global Day of Unity to help nonprofits like us to raise funds and awareness during this tumultuous time of sickness, economic loss and worry.

At Crossroads, we too are experiencing the distress of bad times; however, we also recognize how fortunate and blessed our school is to have amazing and wonderful support from our community. Both organizationally and as individuals, we are only getting through it by #ComingTogetherWhileApart. Everyone reading this right now is a part of the Crossroads family, part of a compassionate and effectively energetic connectedness, and can draw hope and strength because of who we become by working together for something bigger than ourselves. 

That’s why on May 5th, we will be asking you to join us in a Giving Tuesday Now #LookCrossroadsThankFest, when we will dedicate the day’s FB and IG posts to those of gratitude and appreciation. You are invited to post expressions of gratitude and appreciation during the day and use the hashtag #LookCrossroadsThankFest so we can all see your posts. We will be dedicating each hour to a different group of the community from 12:15 am to 11:15 pm on May 5th.

It’s a different way of celebrating the day, for sure, but we can’t wait to fill our pages with the vast love and appreciation we all have. When we all get through this, we will all be stronger, smarter, and safer than ever before. 

We also have fundraising campaigns set up on Give Gab and GoFundme. Your help in sharing these campaigns by copying and pasting the links below to your own social and email channels will be a huge boost to our reach and fundraising efforts. Click the links below to donate or to share.

12.3.2019     We had a wonderful and busy day today!

Thank you to everyone who came to give our students the gifts of pets, picture I.D.s and Disney wisdom!

Many thanks, too, to several people who helped our school raise money today! Donations that we receive from our devoted community helps to sustain the very essential mission of this organization.

Our 2019 Giving Tuesday Fundraising Champions:

Tammy Lindgaard, Kathleen Davis, Annie Grzywaczewski, Alicia Tietz, Cindy Barkowski, Jena Samson and Kerry Duffy! In addition to donations received through these Facebook Champions, we also have received gifts from individuals through cash and checks. To date, we’ve raised $6,175 in #GivingTuesday2019 contributions. Thank you to all champs and donors! We are grateful for this support!

Donations which are made on Facebook will come to us in about 3 months. They will send us a lump payment which will include dates of gifts but not donors. We want to be sure to thank each and every person who donates to our school, so have written to these donors on the fundraiser’s page to thank them. If we’ve somehow missed someone, please reach out and let us know! 

Here are some pictures from our activities at school today!
