Join Us This Giving Tuesday!

Help us celebrate this December 3, the global day of giving, by supporting local refugee families in Pittsburgh!

Tuesday, Dec, 3, 2019

This Giving Tuesday you can give the gift of friendship to new refugee families in the city of Pittsburgh.

After the rush of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday presents the opportunity to give back. On December 3, millions of people around the world will come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

When you donate to Hello Neighbor, you are making a tremendous impact on the lives of recently resettled refugees in Pittsburgh as they begin to rebuild their lives and become more confident and comfortable in an unfamiliar city.

Thanks to a $50,000 match from one of our generous funders, USA for UNHCR, and a $7 million match from Facebook and PayPal, this Giving Tuesday you can **TRIPLE YOUR IMPACT **when you give to Hello Neighbor.

That means, on this one special day only, every $1 you donate becomes $3.

With the help of supporters like you, in just two and a half years, Hello Neighbor has matched 95 refugee families from 12 different countries (over 500 moms, dads and kids) with local Pittsburgh mentors. We experienced significant growth in 2018 alone, including the start of the New Neighbor Cookie Table, a food social enterprise where refugee women bake a signature sweet from their culture and $.75 of every dollar goes directly to the bakers to help support their families. We’ve hosted community dinners around the city that bring people together and provide financial opportunities to refugees, started a new program called Smart Start for Refugee Moms and Children, focused on the most vulnerable in our community, and launched a national network to support new neighbors in communities across the country.

Together we are making a difference in the lives of refugee families in Pittsburgh, and we are just getting started.

This Giving Tuesday we are asking for donations to support the growth of our mentorship programs as we continue our work in making Pittsburgh a welcoming place for all.

3 Ways To Give:

There are a few different ways that you can give on GivingTuesday, all of which support our $50,000 match.

Our Website:Visit our donate page and consider making a one-time donation or signing up to be a monthly donor.

Give Big Pittsburgh:Join your fellow Pittsburghers this December 3rd by participating in Give Big Pittsburgh and designating your gift to support Hello Neighbor.

Facebook:Starting at 8am EST on December 3, Facebook and PayPal will match a total of $7 Million in donations. This match money will go fast, so the earlier you give after 8am the greater your chance of doubling your impact.

No matter where or how you give, whether it’s $5 or $500, every dollar you donate is making a difference in the life of recently resettled refugee families in Pittsburgh. Thank you for partnering with us and making Pittsburgh a city that is welcoming to all.
