On December 1st -- #GivingTuesday -- the Officer Down Memorial Page will join with other non-profits and charities in the Giving Tower Challenge to raise money for worthwhile causes.
Each donation made to the Officer Down Memorial Page through the Giving Tower link that day counts as a brick in a virtual tower; last year's tower grew to be the 5th tallest building in the world. This year the goal is to create the tallest "building" in the world and show the true impact of all of our collective giving.
In addition, the organization that raises the most money on December 1st will win an additional $25,000 for their charity.
We are asking our loyal supporters to help by joining our team -- the ODMP Band of Blue -- and becoming fundraisers. By reaching out to your friends and family to raise awareness and money for our cause, imagine the impact we can have.
Every dollar we raise in the Giving Tower Challenge will be used to help ODMP fulfill it's mission of honoring fallen law enforcement heroes. Some of the programs your donation will support include:
- Creating and maintaining the more than 22,000 Memorial & Reflection pages for each fallen officer on ODMP, including fallen K9 heroes
- Sending more than 3 million Line of Duty Death notifications annually
- Supporting the survivors of the fallen through our comprehensive benefits database
- Keeping cop killers behind bars through our No Parole program
#GivingTuesday is next week on December 1st, so mark your calendars and get ready to show just what kind of impact we can have when we all work together in support of a good cause.
As always, we at ODMP thank you for your generous support and appreciate all that you do!
