Giving Tuesday is Right Around the Corner
Giving Tuesday, the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is December 3rd of this year. It comes after Black Friday and Cyber Monday and has been an ever growing favorite time of the year for charity giving. Last year, over $380 Million Dollars was raised for charities nationwide on Giving Tuesday, that were comprised of 3.6 million gifts, the average being $105.55. Facebook alone raised $120 million last year so that means they were about 31% of the total.
Our Giving Tuesday donations for the past 3 years were $9,237.05 in 2016, $18,800.00 in 2017 and $49,833.00 in 2018. We need to maintain this growth because it means so much to our mission of discovering a cure or treatment for both HSP and PLS. You will hear more on our Facebook page and email blasts. Please don't be shy! Be sure to let your friends and family be a part of this wonderful cause!
