Giving Tuesday Inflates Hang Tough Foundation Fundraising Efforts

Hero Moms will wear inflatable costumes while soliciting donations on Giving Tuesday

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—The Hang Tough Foundation, a Tallahassee-based non-profit that serves families whose children have been affected by chronic or life-altering illness or special needs, announces a unique fundraiser to be held on Tuesday, November 30th for ‘Giving Tuesday.’  Part of Hang Tough’s mission is to provide normal childhood experiences and fun, memorable moments for our Heroes (child with a diagnosis) and their siblings.  This year, a group of Hero Moms are joining in on the fun while supporting their own kids!  On Tuesday, November 30th from 8:30am-10:30am at the Dunkin’ Donuts located at 3098 Apalachee Pkwy, these Hero parents will be dressed in inflatable costumes and waving signs to solicit donations for the organization.

Hero Mom and event organizer, Kristin Zaideman states, “This is a time to have fun and raise money for this amazing organization we all love.”  Funds raised will go directly to provide our 850 Heroes and their family members the programs and services offered by Hang Tough at no cost to them. The Hang Tough Foundation provides tutoring, family fun nights, sibling programs, caregiver support groups, hospital care packages, and more. “When those that you serve come up with their own fundraiser to support your mission, it provides validation that our services are appreciated and much needed,” said Janelle Irwin, Executive Director of the Hang Tough Foundation.  “In addition, this creates an opportunity for Hang Tough to share who we are with the public, while raising funds, and we get to wear inflatable dinosaur or unicorn costumes!  This is magic in the making!”

Donations will collected on site at Dunkin’ or will be accepted online at:
