In the midst of the giving season, let’s talk about a movement that started in 2012 and has changed the way we give and hopefully, the way we think of these days following Thanksgiving. We’re talking about the #GivingTuesday movement. 6 years ago two organizations, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation joined together to create a day of giving. The movement spread rapidly and was readily embraced by many companies such as Google, Microsoft, Skype and more. The “#” was added and the movement expanded even more! It’s easy to engage and support your favorite cause and watch the movement spread like wildfire through #GivingTuesday. Join Perthes.org and #PerthesGives to show your support for someone you love!
Today many companies are offering a match to donations received on Giving Tuesday. Facebook is partnering with , to match a total of up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook to eligible US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits.
But there are ways to give that don’t involve a dollar. Perthes.org is looking for volunteers for upcoming initiatives. If you are passionate about spreading the word about Perthes and rare diseases, changing healthcare policy, and advocating for advancing research contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org today!
