Giving Tuesday

Tuesday, December 1st, is Giving Tuesday, a global movement that gives people the chance to change their communities for the better. Today we come together as a collective UMD community to show our support to those working tirelessly during this unprecedented time. The nurses and doctors at Children’s National Hospital are risking their lives every day in order to make sure that the children of our community can stay as healthy and safe as possible. Today we are asking all of you to do one simple thing, write a virtual letter to the staff members at Children's National Hospital to thank them for all their hard work.


During this unprecedented and challenging time, Children’s National Hospital continues to bring hope and healing by providing drive-up/walk through COVID-19 testing sites exclusively for pediatric patients, the first one of its kind in the nation. Your support for Terp Thon and Children’s National Hospital is a bright light during this time of uncertainty. Facebook will be matching $7 million worth of donations that come through Facebook Fundraisers!

Consider donating the following amounts to signify your support:

  • $1 since Children’s National Hospital was the 1st hospital in the country to have a drive up testing center for children

  • $6 for the 6 feet required to maintain social distancing

  • $20 to represent the recommended amount of time to wash your hands

  • $95 to represent a N95 mask that is preferred for those within the hospital
