December 3rd is Giving Tuesday

This year for Giving Tuesday, Together We Rise has identified 15 dedicated supporters who will be Heroes for children in Foster Care. During the month of November, Together We Rise is challenging our Hero’s to share the mission with their personal networks to raise as much as possible for children in foster care.

The goal is to raise a collective $50,000 during November. Each Hero has their own goals listed below. Please find the team you want to support and donate directly to their fundraiser.

100% of the donations will go back to programs that directly benefit the kids we serve. Sweet Cases, bikes, skateboards, birthday boxes, and Superhero Boxes will be filled, built and given to local foster care agencies across the country.

After Giving Tuesday, we will calculate the totals and announce the winners. This campaign is also a competition for the Heroes, featuring some amazing prizes and awards each Hero has the ability to win! Please share this link with your friends and family. Together we can make a difference!

If you have questions or are interested in becoming a “Hero”, please contact -- tyler@togetherwerise.org.

*All donations are 100% tax-deductible

Fundraising with Together We Rise makes an impact

Every day, nearly 1,200 children are removed from their homes and placed into the United States foster care system at no fault of their own. When these youth enter adulthood, 51% become unemployed and 25% experience homelessness. For those that attempt college, only 3% will make it to graduation. Although these numbers are tragic, there are ways that we can work together to make a difference.

As a partner with Together We Rise, we work with your company, employees and customers to impact the lives of foster youth in your local communities and to change the way these youth experience the foster care system. Studies show that employees and customers take pride in supporting companies that strive to make a difference. When you partner with Together We Rise, you give your employees and customers the tools to make an impact, leaving them fulfilled and empowered to change the world.

How We Help Kids In Foster Care

Together We Rise helps children in several ways including three main programs we use to support children in foster care: Sweet Cases, Building Bikes (formally known as Build A Bike®), and our Family Fellowship Scholarship Program. Together We Rise has participants in every state fundraise to support these programs.

Without the help of participants across the United States, Together We Rise wouldn’t be able to help so many foster kids. Sweet Cases is our largest program, helping to replace trash bags with blue duffel bags to make the foster care transitions a little bit easier for children. When foster youth age out of the system, we help provide them bikes.

Many youth at the aging out age are unprepared and don’t have transportation, so we give them bikes so they’re able to get to their jobs and school classes. For former foster youth, we support them with a scholarship program. Our Family Fellowship is the largest scholarship program in the nation that benefits youth who have aged out of the system. Together We Rise’s Family Fellowship is a safe and supportive scholarship award that benefits successful youth who have aged out of the system. Our programs are growing and expanding thanks to our donors and corporate company supporters.
