Whats is #GivingTuesday?
Tuesday, December 2, 2014 is the third annual #GivingTuesday event. #GivingTuesday was started by the United Nations Foundation and the 92nd Street YMCA in New York three years ago, and it has grown to include thousands of non-profits across the globe, including Dysautonomia International. Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation, explains, "Giving Tuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to remind us that giving during the holiday season is about more than just consumerism. The most meaningful gift we can give to our children, loved ones, friends and neighbors is a commitment to work together to help build a better world."
Help us build a better world for people living with dysautonomia by supporting Dysautonomia International on #GivingTuesday, December 2nd, and throughout the month of December.
How you can participate in #GivingTuesday:
| Donate any amount you can afford. No donation is too big or too small. All donations made to Dysautonomia International this December will be matched by an anonymous donor up to $20,000!|
| Print out a copy of a #GivingTuesday flyer. Post a photo on social media letting your friends and family know why you are supporting Dysautonomia International, and ask them to do the same. Use the hashtags #UNselfie and #GivingTuesday, and link to this page: http://www.dysautonomiainternational.org/GivingTuesday|
| Find out if your employer will match your donation.
Your donation + matching grant donor + your employer's match + matching grant donor = QUADRUPLE IMPACT!
Thank you for your support! With your help, we can improve the lives of individuals living with POTS and other forms of dysautonomia by funding groundbreaking medical research, educating physicians, empowering patients to be their own best advocates and raising awareness with the public.
