So, why are we asking you to give up $6.03 on June 3rd?
If over 8,000 people give up their coffee and donut today – roughly $6.03 – we can raise over $50,000 towards funding research for rare pediatric diseases – like PYROXD-1 for our little Nat G and her warrior friends. We thought it would be fitting to ask you to do this with us on June 3rd – National Donut Day – in preparation for our Annual Donut Run in September!
We are encouraging everyone to donate $6.03 on this day, and to gather their friends, family and co-workers together to do the same. You can donate $6.03 on your own or make your own “team” by asking your workplace, gym, church, or family to donate along with you and see the combined affect you can have fighting for possible together!
Here’s how you can join in the fight:
- PLEDGE NOW. If you would like to donate your $6.03 so you don’t forget, you can choose pledge now above (or at the bottom of this page).
- PLEDGE LATER. If you would like to donate your $6.03 on June 3rd for our big day of giving, you can choose pledge later above (or at the bottom of this page).
Are you down for extra credit?
After you join the fight, let us know on social media @TakePartFoundation by tagging us in a post and inviting some of your friends, family, and coworkers to join you!
We can’t do this alone. We need your help so our warriors can see possibilities play out in their lives today!
Fun Fact – National Donut Day is always on the first Friday of June of each year, succeeding the doughnut event created by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 to honor those of their members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I! How cool!
So, will you join the fight?!
