Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement. December 1st is a day to demonstrate the power of people like you, and organizations like the Amputee Coalition, to transform their communities.
In a year full of challenges, the Amputee Coalition wants to close out 2020 with a celebration of the resiliency and tenacity of our community. A celebration of all our community: people living with limb loss and limb difference, caregivers, health care professionals, and advocates.
On Giving Tuesday, demonstrate your power by sharing with us why you #LoveYourJourney. Every person’s journey is unique. And, as our National Conference celebrated, your unique journey showcases the power of you. By sharing your story, you will uplift and inspire others within our community.
You can also #LoveOurCommunity with a charitable donation to the Amputee Coalition. All our programs rely on charitable dollars. And your donation on Giving Tuesday will have a greater impact. The first $6,000 donated on Giving Tuesday will be matched, $1-for-$1, by the Amputee Coalition’s Board Chair, Dr. Jeffrey Cain, and CEO/President, Mary Richards. When you give $50, they will match your gift with an additional $50, generating $100 to support our community. Our goal is to raise $15,000 in 24 hours.
Double the impact. Double the love. Double the positive outcomes like this one:
“My daughter and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts…No one knows the strain it puts on other family members when someone you love is hurting. You came through when no one else could help us.”
