We Can All Pick. Click. Give. Something
Pick. Click. Give. is off to a rough start this year. The number of people giving and the amount pledged so far is down dramatically from last year. (There is some good news – the people who are giving are giving at the same level as previous years.)
We at Alaska Children’s Trust are seeing the change in Pick. Click. Give. contributions, too. Last year, Alaskans donated $6,125 to ACT through Pick. Click. Give. This year, a month into the campaign, we’re at $700. (A big thank you to those who have donated so far!)
It’s a hard year for everyone. Money is tight for a lot of Alaskans, and there’s a lot of uncertainty about the state’s economic future. And unfortunately, money troubles can put even more stress on families, and sometimes that stress can lead to increased risk for child abuse and neglect.
So what we’re saying is that your support is more important than ever.
We understand that not everyone can afford to make a large donation to support our mission to prevent child abuse and neglect. But, as the saying goes, every little bit helps. Seriously. No matter how little that is.
Our 2017 Pick. Click. Give. goal is modest. We want to raise $6,000, which is just under what you all donated last year. We’re already at $700, so that means $5,300 left to go. Now $5,300 might sound like a big number, but look at it this way: If 212 people gave just $25, we’d be at our goal!
So what do you think? Can you be one of the 212 people who step up and say, “I can give $25 to help prevent child abuse and neglect!”?
Together we can prevent child abuse and neglect.
