Today is #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving. As you know, The Red Boot Way is participating in our local #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign. See our November 14 blog post for more details.

We have another great opportunity to help us reach our #GivingTuesday goal. Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are joining forces to match up to $2 million donated to U.S. nonprofits, and to waive donation fees for the day. Only donations made on Facebook today (from 8:00 AM to midnight Eastern Time) are eligible for matching and waived fees. The $2 million nationwide cap for matching funds has already been reached, but we still need your help today to get as many fee-free donations as possible.

Please consider posting a Facebook fundraiser for The Red Boot Way as described at When asked “Who are you raising money for?” choose “Nonprofit”, and search for “Red Boot”; we should be listed as “Red Boot Coalition” (our former name).

If you’d rather just donate instead of setting up your own fundraiser, we already have six individual fundraisers shared on our Red Boot Way Facebook page (, and hope to add even more! 

Donations to these Facebook fundraisers, regardless of size, will add up to tremendous support of Red Boot’s mission and programs.

If you’re not on Facebook, you can still support us today by visiting our SHARE Charlotte page ( or our website ( to make a secure online donation.

Please email us at if you have any questions.

Thanks again for supporting The Red Boot Way!
