Christmas in July (Fundraiser for DAIS)


Click here for a very important message from Jennifer Parker, our Christmas in July Team Lead!

It's back and the elves are taking Christmas in July viral this year (click here to donate online!). This annual fundraiser for Domestic Abuse Intervention Services denies the power of illness to dampen our efforts. We propose an epidemic of generosity that is contagious within the greater Madison community.

Widespread donating opportunities that will cause giving to run rampant are endemic to this event. To insure this, we will publish a Unity Facebook page that will encourage giving from our Unity members as well as other people and groups DAIS is affiliated with. An online credit card donation button that goes directly to DAIS will also be available from our web site. Furthermore, checks made out to Domestic Abuse Intervention services can be mailed to the Unity office. All of this is in addition to our usual acceptance of checks and cash at our services. We will be able to track the epidemic of giving as it progresses and let you know how much money we’ve raised.

A donor has started us off with a $1,200 match! We rejoice that whether or not members choose to be live or virtual, this positive epidemic will raise at least $4,000. Donations will be accepted throughout the month of July. Please remember to make checks out to DAIS, not Unity.  

With gratitude and humor,

The Christmas in July Team
