Make #GivingTuesday POWERFUL.

Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? Every year, the Tuesday following Thanksgiving is set aside for people to give to causes they care about. There's Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday.

Neighbors like Virginia need our help. Make your donation TWICE as powerful on Tuesday!

Every dollar you raise for Serve More on Giving Tuesday will be matched! DOUBLED!!

Facebook and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have promised to match every dollar* raised through the Facebook Fundraiser platform on Giving Tuesday! If you raise $250 for Serve More on Facebook, it suddenly becomes $500! Raise $1,000? BOOM! $2,000!!

Listen, it's SUPER easy to tell people why Serve More is important to you. And it's SUPER easy for them to chip in a few dollars to your Facebook Fundraiser. But I need you to not ignore this email — I need you to set up a quick Facebook Fundraiser and ask your friends to support the work to #LoveYourNeighbor.

Practice setting up your Fundraiser today. 
BUT wait till Giving Tuesday to launch so every dollar is doubled!

Let's say "BYE" 👋 to 2016...

It’s been a big year for us.

With your help, we reunited a family with their quadriplegic son.
We gave disabled neighbors more freedom
We made single moms proud of their homes
We granted a woman’s dying wish.
We almost lost — but then SAVED — Serve Moore. 

And, let’s not forget, we relaunched so we could Serve More.

 

Now, we’ve got even bigger dreams for 2017.

We’re expanding volunteer projects to even more neighborhoods next year. We will help renew school buildings and community centers. We will build new accessibility ramps. And we’re gearing up for what’s looking to be a very active tornado season next Spring. All this in an effort to love our neighbors more.

All these dreams turned into reality because of you. Neighbors were loved and served because you gave or you volunteered — or BOTH! This is YOUR nonprofit and we’ve done all this beautiful, important work together. So, thank you. Thanks for your unwavering support and your commitment to seeing your neighbors loved.

 

Let’s make 2017 Serve More’s best year yet.

Serving our neighbors costs money. But not a lot. We push every dollar to make sure we’re getting the most bang for the buck. In fact, there’s a list below of just how little it costs to make a HUGE impact on your community. Check it out:

$25 One Volunteer trained to respond to house fires & tornados.
$250 Home of a Disaster Victim secured and precious belongings saved.
$500 Home of a struggling Single Mom made safe and beautiful through repairs.
$1000 New freedom for a Disabled Veteran with an ADA-compliant accessibility ramp.

How much can you give? Can you give freedom to a disabled vet? Or could you train a Disaster Volunteer to help in times of trouble? Maybe you could give safety to a single mom? With just a few more days left in the 2016 Tax Year, consider making a tax-deductible donation today!

#WeAreThankful for Volunteers

Sometimes we take for granted that we know Serve Moore's story so well. We've lived it every day for more than two years. A few days ago, however, I got to tell the story to someone who had never heard it. That got me thinking. We have such an incredible story because we have so much for which to be thankful! So here it is — our Week of Thankfulness — our chance to express just how deeply grateful we are for this incredible story. 

Our story began with people. What started as about 50 of our local friends wanting to do something — anything — to help those hurting after an EF-5 tornado tore through our communities turned into more than 50,000 people giving their time to help us recover. We never could have predicted that inviting people to #ServeMoore with us would result in so many people answering that call — let alone that a nonprofit passionate about serving and loving people would be born out of that movement. 

We are thankful for the tens of thousands of volunteers who have given their time to the people of central Oklahoma. You are our first and greatest resource as a nonprofit. You are the reason we are able to do what we do. And you will continue to be the key to connecting the people who need help with the people who want to give help. In January, Serve Moore will begin to organize and train local, individual volunteers to work to renew homes and renew lives. So thank you for inspiring us. Thank you for being the beginning and the continuation of this incredible story.


If you're local to the central Oklahoma area and you're interested in volunteering regularly with Serve Moore, give us your contact info and we will email you in January with dates for our Volunteer Launch events!
