Please rally your friends (from near and far) to help us raise $39,000 during this 24-hours of online giving. We are asking our supporters to give whatever they can, because every gift will be multiplied through matching funds. The more money NAMI Collier County raises to support our Tommy August Memorial Emergency Care Fund, the larger percentage of the $500,000 matching funds we receive.
Join us in raising awareness about the work we do in the community. Open our Campaign Email Blasts and Facebook posts … then Like Us … Share Us … Spread the word on social media … or just have a conversation to tell friends and family why NAMI Collier County is important to you and why you believe in what we do.
WHO YOU WILL HELP
Designating NAMI Collier County for this 24-hour online campaign will provide critical funds to assist both individuals and families throughout our programming areas. Offering a helping hand when it is needed most to people on their personal journey of resilience and recovery.
NAMI Collier County helps by eliminating short-term emergency financial barriers to ensure their immediate mental health needs are met. Sometimes helping with housing assistance or co-pays for essential psychiatric care and medications. Providing money to pay for a bus pass or other transportation to get to a doctor’s appointment. Purchasing “work” clothes to help someone start a new job or helping a family buy a school uniform to ensure their child can attend classes.
