At this time of year, when we are all busy and ready to be with family, sharing food and maybe presents, we sincerely ask you to consider “buying” a philanthropic gift on Giving Tuesday: use the list below and donate to PACPI in honor of a loved one.

Giving Tuesday is December 2. We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. World AIDS Day is December 1 so we see this as a perfect opportunity to give to programs helping people directly affected by HIV/AIDS, like PACPI’s moms and babies.GT_2014Web-Banner_250x250_RedAlt

PACPI clients are moms with a lot on their shoulders. Motherhood is a challenge all on its own and our case managers work with each woman to manage her HIV, learn about motherhood, and get help if she is homeless, struggling with addiction or mental illness, or experiencing violence in the home.

On December 2, join the worldwide movement to give to others and you will be directly helping women and children in the Chicagoland region.

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Choose an item from the list below and donate that amount on our online donation page.
  2. Write the name of your friend, partner, family member, or colleague and include “Giving Tuesday” in the Tribute Name box. If you enter their email address in the same box, we will send them a special gift notification email.
