The Painters and Allied Trades for Children’s Hope Foundation (PATCH) has been using social media to raise money for its charitable goal of helping children in need throughout North America. PATCH is supported by the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) and, since it was created in 2001, has raised over $1 million for youth organizations in Canada and the United States. Now PATCH is focusing on raising funds for United Cerebral Palsy.
For each “like” or follow on PATCH’s Facebook and Twitter pages the organization will donate $1 to United Cerebral Palsy — My Child Without Limits. The partnership looks to increase awareness about children with Cerebral Palsy and the challenges faced by the families caring for them. According to IUPAT General President and Chairman of the PATCH Foundation, James A. Williams:
“The men and women of the IUPAT are proud to give back to our communities through the PATCH Foundation. Making a positive difference in children’s lives is the ultimate reward for being a good neighbor in our communities.”
