We think you will agree that #GivingTuesday is one of the best events of this holiday season.

Now imagine the good that you can help accomplish if your donation today is matched dollar-for-dollar.

Fresno-based Alliance for Medical Outreach and Relief is utilizing a new non-profit feature that allows users to donate directly on Facebook.

And this #GivingTuesday, all donations made on Facebook will be matched by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, up to $50,000 per non-profit.

In addition, Facebook is waiving all fees on #GivingTuesday for contributions made through its “donate tool.”

“Giving Tuesday is a national initiative, but we believe it can lead to a big local impact here in the Central Valley,” said AMOR Executive Director Davena Witcher.” At AMOR, we have partnered with Facebook and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to double all our donations.

“That is money that will stay right here in Fresno County where we are working to start construction of a brand new rural health clinic and neighborhood resource center in Mendota in early 2018. Donations now can help make that a reality.”

AMOR’s mission is to improve the health status of the communities it serves. The goal is for every community worldwide to have access to quality, affordable healthcare and health education.

The town was selected because California health officials said it lacked primary care, mental health and dental services. AMOR will mobilize an alliance of safety-net providers and family and youth resources for the agricultural community.

AMOR also operates the Ashfar Hospital and six clinics in Afghanistan.

In 2016, 65,163 patients received treatment at AMOR facilities. AMOR healthcare providers administered nearly 10,000 vaccinations and delivered 1,537 babies.
