3 Reasons Companies Partner With CaringWays®

December 27, 2022


The holidays are supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year—filled with glee, wonder, and cheer. But for cancer patients, families racked with medical debt, or people struggling with a substance use disorder, this sentiment is often mixed with feelings of fear, guilt, and isolation. Showing people you care about them and their medical journey can be one of the most meaningful ways to give back during the holidays.

As a fundraising platform designed to help people raise support for medical bills and health-related expenses, we know the holidays can be a uniquely challenging season for patients. We understand that the crushing weight of medical debt can make patients feel like they can’t celebrate the season as they normally would. 

CareFunding is a solution that allows friends and family to come alongside a patient in a meaningful way by raising financial support for their health-related expenses. 

Why CareFunding is the Best Way to Give Back During the Holidays 

After hearing countless stories from patients and CareChampions, we’re convinced that CareFunding can be the best way to give back during the holidays. Here are a few reasons why: 

1. CareFunding provides tangible help for today and hope for tomorrow.

It can be difficult to find hope and joy in the midst of a cancer diagnosis or medical emergency. Because the holiday season holds so many emotional connections and memories, it can be a difficult season to navigate in the midst of an illness. On top of this emotional aspect, there’s often the added pressure to keep up with the demands of the holiday season.

CareFunding offers a way to provide patients with the practical help they need today by helping them pay for the everyday expenses that often become overwhelming during a medical crisis. It also provides hope for tomorrow by assuring them they can pay for the treatment they need. 

2. CareFunding helps patients cover their unique medical financial challenges during the holidays.

For most patients, the holidays come with unique financial challenges. The cost of treatment often forces patients to reduce spending and make other financial sacrifices. Even families with insurance can experience financial strain during the holidays. 

CareFunding is a way to specifically address the financial burdens that cause patients to worry during the holidays. This allows them to be present and actually enjoy time with friends and family rather than going through the holidays with a looming cloud of worry over their heads.  

3. CareFunding can reduce the burden of medical expenses in the new year. 

The holidays also signify the end of the year. During this time, patients receiving cancer treatment or recovering from a medical emergency have to face the reality of resetting deductibles and insurance expenses. 

CareFunding provides relief from feeling like you have to face the mountain of medical expenses alone. Whether you start a campaign for a loved one after a cancer diagnosis or help a loved one pay for prescription costs, you can help individuals start the year with the financial resources they need for treatment.  

4. CareFunding creates an opportunity for people to come together for something bigger than themselves.

The holidays are often a season when we gather together with friends, family, and co-workers to celebrate the love we have for each other. CareFunding creates an opportunity to take that to the next level by allowing people to rally around a person and collectively achieve something they couldn’t on their own. For CareChampions, starting a CaringWays® campaign is just as meaningful of an experience for them as it is for the patient receiving the support. One of the most beautiful aspects of CareFunding is seeing people come together to support a patient during their time of need. 

5. CareFunding ensures the money given is being used wisely. 

The holidays are a season of generosity. 63% of people will make a charitable donation at the end of the year. Most donors want to know how their money is going to be spent and how their support is benefitting the cause. 

Because CaringWays® offers a focused and secure way to raise support for health-related expenses, CareFunding becomes a way to provide donors with the peace of mind that their funds are being used wisely. 

‘Tis the Season of Caring

We know that the holidays can be a difficult time for patients and their families. If you’re looking for a way to make a real difference in the life of a loved one, CareFunding might be the best gift you could give. Learn more about what makes CaringWays® unique and CareFunding campaigns today.
