For most of us, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the “unofficial” start to the holiday shopping season. This year, New Jersey 101.5 is teaming up with Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation to make Nov. 28 – #GivingTuesday – the official start to the giving season!

On #GivingTuesday, we hope that you’ll join the global movement dedicated to giving and volunteering. For the celebration, we’re encouraging 24 hours of unprecedented giving with the goal of helping New Jersey children and adolescents facing special health challenges at Children’s Specialized Hospital’s 13 locations. Donate here now.

You can double your impact in support of Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. Now through midnight on #GivingTuesday all gifts will be matched 2-to-1 up to the first $10,000 through donations by an anonymous donor.

This holiday season, help support the hospital in its work to care for children and adolescents facing special health challenges, from chronic illnesses and complex physical disabilities like brain and spinal cord injuries, to developmental and behavioral issues like autism and mental health. Donations go directly to helping pioneer specialized children's care and to serving more children in need.

The above post is sponsored by Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation, which supports the programs and services of the hospital. All donations go directly to helping pioneer new specialized care and serve more children in need. To help, or for more information: visit; find Children's Specialized Hospital on Facebook, or follow on it on Twitter.
