We are so excited to share this amazing bit of news with you: BioSpine Institute has agreed to provide $2500.00 in matching funds for our Giving Tuesday challenge!  This generous gift not only means that BioSpine believes in what we are doing for foster children, but it also means that your donation will be doubled and make twice the impact.  A matching gift allows us to raise even more critical funds in a very cool way; by supporting Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season.  Years ago, as the day after Thanksgiving became known as Black Friday, consumers adopted the notion that it was the day best set aside for bargain shopping for everyone on the giving list.  The notion took off, and Black Friday has become a successful way to promote holiday gift buying.  But even the Grinch Who Stole Christmas will tell you that we celebrate much more than just a chance to open gifts!
“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!  What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store?  What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?!”
Well we are here to tell you that Christmas, indeed, means a little bit more!  Enter Giving Tuesday and the opportunity to donate to A Kid’s Place and make a difference in the lives of foster children!  We are proud to partner with the BioSpine Institute to help make your donation dollars go twice as far.  On behalf of foster children from all over the greater Tampa Bay area, thank you for helping make a difference.
