To commemorate those amazing deals and savings from your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, celebrate the beginning of the giving season by choosing to donate to support finding a treatment and a cure for spinal muscular atrophy.
On Tuesday, November 27, 2012, people from over 1,400 organizations across the country will take part in a brand new giving campaign called #GivingTuesday. Over a twelve hour timeframe, starting at 7:00 am CST, Cure SMA will be posting facts on our social media pages about SMA research, family support programs, statistics and more. Linked to each fact will be an opportunity to support our outstanding SMA research progress and our crucial care programs for SMA families.
Aren’t able to make a monetary contribution? No problem! Every hour we’ll also provide an opportunity to share your experiences with Cure SMA to inspire SMA awareness in your social circles.
Cure SMA’s success in fostering awareness and gaining support on #GivingTuesday depends on the participation of all of our members and supporters! To take part in Cure SMA’s #GivingTuesday social media campaign visit our Facebook page and share our posts or start following us on Twitter today, and re-tweet us to your followers!
