Come together with UMOM for Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29! We need your help to give homeless families a second chance and make this the best global day of giving yet.

It’s easier than ever because this Giving Tuesday, your gift counts twice! Hands of Promise has made a promise to match donations to UMOM dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000. We’re so thankful for their generosity. Let your giving go twice as far this year! We’ll also go live on Facebook with our CEO, Darlene Newsom and CPO, Mattie Lord in the morning for about an hour to discuss our life changing programs and services. Tune in to learn about your impact on UMOM!

Giving Tuesday is a global day of charity and philanthropy that started in 2012. It was created to follow and counteract the consumerism and commercialization found in Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The movement raised more than a $100 million for nonprofits worldwide in 2015, and gets bigger every year.

Make a difference in the life a homeless family and donate to UMOM this Giving Tuesday!

National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is Nov. 12 – 20. The week is designed to raise awareness of and take action against our ongoing homeless crisis. This is a time for us all to start thinking about what we are thankful for, share compassion with our neighbors and work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger and homelessness. There’s no better time to support the cause and help those facing homelessness—and look good while doing it.

Tempe-based apparel company Sportiqe is generously donating 20 percent of its sales earned through the Sportiqe website during the entire week of Nov. 12 – 20 to UMOM in honor of National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week.

Specializing in comfy basics and athletic leisure clothing, Sportiqe has a following amongst celebrities, sports fans and everyday folks alike.

National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week started in 1975 at a single university. This year, more than 700 schools and community groups will raise awareness and aid those who are homeless.

You can help too! Do good for the hundreds of families experiencing homelessness in UMOM’s care and look good at the same time! Shop at Sportiqe for all your athletic and leisure apparel to support UMOM during National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, Nov. 12 – 20.
