Let’s face it, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg make the headlines when they pledge millions of dollars for social good, but we can’t all make donations of that magnitude. I do have a plan for “when I win the lottery”, but in the meantime I am sure you are like me, wondering how much of an impact my small contribution could possibly make?
The answer is “a lot” – because when a lot of people join forces for the common good, together we can move mountains. As the official workplace giving campaign of the Federal government, the Combined Federal Campaign is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace campaign, raising millions of dollars for deserving charities each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season support eligible nonprofit organizations, like Blue Star Families, throughout the year.
“You have patted our shoulder and given us the confidence to believe that we are not alone in this and that somehow everything will be alright! Thank You Blue Star Families for giving us back our smiles!” ~Blue Star Families member since 2013
If you have a Federal employee, retiree or government contractor in your family – military, postal or civilian – and are looking for ways to give back to the military community, please enroll in the campaign before December 15th and designate Blue Star Families, #95243.
