Nevada Cure Celebrates #GivingTuesday and Pledges to find volunteers and be open to your donations for the upcoming months ahead.
Las Vegas, November 15th, 2018
This #GivingTuesday, November 27th, Nevada Cure will celebrate giving by finding volunteers and being open to your donations for the upcoming months ahead.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
Nevada Cure is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that works on human rights issues concerning people incarcerated in Nevada and returning citizens. From our website:
“We are a support- and advocacy group of people whose life has been negatively affected by Nevada’s criminal justice system.
We offer compassionate caring and information to help prisoners, their families, and friends navigate “the system”.
Our board members hold a Monthly Meeting in Las Vegas which is also a teleconference.
We publish an Informational Bulletin for people inside and out.
We respond to prisoners’ mail and we address structural problems in our meetings with the director of prisons.”
Our funds come mosty from donations.
What our goals are
* For the coming months we are fundraising for our Informational Bulletins (readable online and printed and sent to our members inside and out), as well as for our ongoing costs to keep our organization running smoothly.
Gaining knowledge about the prison system, rules and regulations, new laws, politics, is very important, and Nevada Cure wants to inform both the public, its members as well as the members inside as well as possible.
* We are also in search of new volunteers to join our team for various tasks.
This is why we are joining #GivingTuesday this year!

About Nevada Cure
In 2011 a small group restarted the Nevada chapter of Citizens United for the Rehabilitation of Errands (Cure). Nevada has had a reputation of prisoner health care negligence, staff to prisoner violence, very unhealthy prison food, and many more problems that thwart rehabilitation of formerly incarcerated citizens.
With help of volunteers, donations by generous people, and persistence, Nevada Cure has established itself as a dedicated group of volunteers addressing the problems inside the Nevada prison system, and creating more justice and fairness, and thereby less repeat offenders, and more safety.
