Giving Tuesday 2021 – $22 Twosdays

11.9.21 @ 12:00 am - 11.30.21 @ 11:45 pm

Event Navigation

Giving Tuesday is November 30th this year, and we are gearing up for a big month of generous giving at Rett’s Roost! Since we did not hold our Superhero 5K this fall, we are a little behind our fundraising goals. But you can help us reach our goal by giving us your end-of-year contribution.

We’ll be promoting every Tuesday ($22 Tuesdays) until the 30th. To receive our holiday gift before the end of the year, choose one of the following:

1. Contribute $22 each Tuesday (we’ll remind you),
2. Sign up to donate $22 monthly to sustain our work for the future,
3. Donate $222 once during November
4. Start a fundraising page here or on facebook and raise $222 for us this month

2021 Impact

We had a fantastic year despite the lingering pandemic. This summer, we brought 13 families (22 kids, 22 adults) to Maine who have all experienced childhood cancer and child loss, for individual Family Vacations. Our locations included the beautiful Little River Farm in Lebanon, Shilo Farm in Eliot, Duck Puddle Campground in Nobleboro, and the Rett’s Roost Heart-quarters in Ogunquit.

We also successfully and safely hosted 7 families with kids surviving cancer at an in-person Positively Healing Retreat in August and 4 bereaved families at an Open to Healing Retreat in October at Rolling Ridge Retreat Center in North Andover, MA (22 kids, 17 adults). They were our first retreats at this location and we really loved the space, the grounds, and the staff. We hope to continue holding retreats there because it is much larger than our Ogunquit location.

Our Grief is Love Online Retreats for bereaved parents are ongoing, in fact we have one starting on November 21st to help people through the holiday season. This year, we’ve served 40 bereaved parents through this program.

Our Family Grant Program is still active through the end of this year as well. We give grants of $2,222 to families struggling financially during a child’s cancer treatment or in the year after their child died.

Thanks so much for your support! You know we cannot do this without you. There is no doubt in our minds that 2022 is going to be a big year for Rett’s Roost. Your dollars will be used wisely and effectively to support families facing the unimaginable.
