12 For Good Challenge

Introducing the 12 For Good Challenge, a social media campaign, inspiring people to give some, or all of their $1,200 federal stimulus checks to nonprofits serving families in financial distress due to COVID-19.  What are you doing with your $1,200?

"Many of us are receiving bail-out money as a result of the economic hardship caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. However, a lot of us who are going to be getting these federal stimulus checks are not in immediate economic crisis.  If you are one of these individuals, the 12 For Good Challenge is an opportunity for you to make a difference.  Join me and donate some, or all of your check to a nonprofit on the front lines, serving families most affected by this global epidemic."

- Tim Martin, Bresee Board member since 2014
