1. Give Food, Health, Stability, Joy, and Protection to Survivors Around the World
As an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, #GivingTuesdayNow is set to take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2020.
Although we are continuing our missions and aftercare work, the pandemic creates obstacles. Our needs in Operations and Aftercare are evolving, and this global day of giving and unity is an opportunity for O.U.R. supporters to make quick action.
Today, you can join the fight and GIVE FOOD, GIVE HEALTH, GIVE STABILITY, GIVE JOY, and GIVE PROTECTION to our survivors! GIVE NOW: https://my.ourrescue.org/givingtuesdaynow
2. Buy the Operation Toussaint DVD
As part of #GivingTuesdayNow, we want to offer this DVD to you as a way to join the fight today! This DVD will be available for 24 hours only for $19.99. Operation Toussaint is a documentary about O.U.R. Founder Tim Ballard and his special forces team as they go undercover in Haiti to bring a ring of sex traffickers who bribed their way out of jail, to justice. Watch the trailer by clicking here.

3. Corporate Matching
Many businesses offer corporate matching opportunities to their employees to encourage charitable giving. Learn more about corporate partnerships and check out our corporate matching search tool here: https://ourrescue.org/partnerships. (Corporate Matching is also available upon completing your donation for #GivingTuesdayNow at this link: ourrescue.org/givingtuesdaynow!)
We offer a variety of partnerships and rely heavily on the generous support and expertise of companies, individuals and foundations to help put an end to modern-day slavery.

4. Donate a QCD (Qualified Charitable Discount) from your IRA
As you may know, the U.S. Congress passed the CARES Act last month to provide economic assistance, and there is one important change we want to highlight for you today. For individuals with IRA accounts, there are no Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) this year.
However, giving a pre-tax gift out of your IRA is still an excellent way to support the work that you care about the most, without draining your bank account in uncertain times. These gifts, called Qualified Charitable Distributions, will also lower your future tax burden significantly in comparison to giving cash. https://www.freewill.com/qcd/ourrescue
5. Free Will – Leave your Legacy with O.U.R.
Creating a planned gift is a powerful way to make a lasting impact and legacy with us that won’t cost you anything today.
We hope you will join the many people who have included our organization in their will, trust, or beneficiary designations. Writing a will is one of the most important steps to take, though understandably scary or uncomfortable. But now more than ever, it’s important to protect what matters most to you and have a plan in place. Get started on protecting what matters most by using this free will-writing tool.
