Simply saying thank you hardly seems to express how grateful we are to all who helped make NH Gives Day a success.
Together more than 180 donors gave more than $42,000 in just over 24 hours to help ensure New Hampshire’s victimized children are paired with a volunteer to advocate on their behalf so they can thrive in safe, permanent homes, free from the debilitating cycle of abuse and neglect.S
Our $15,000 goal was exceeded, and a $5,000 match from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield was completed, in less than 3 minutes.
Across the state, more than 14,000 donors contributed more than $3.3 million to nonprofits in just 24 hours, showing the generosity and spirit that time and time again reminds us that New Hampshire is a great place to live.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created some significant challenges this year and every day we worry about the safety and well-being of the many at-risk children in this state who are isolated in their homes in unsafe situations. With a more than 50% decrease in new abuse and neglect cases being reported in New Hampshire, we are expecting a surge in cases down the road.
More volunteers will be critically needed to make sure every child who needs one has a voice. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a CASA volunteer advocate, visit our Become an Advocate page to learn more.
