5 Ways to Support Giving Tuesday

Although 2021 was full of unpredictability, you can close the year with a celebration of the important moments from our community through supporting the Amputee Coalition on Giving Tuesday, November 30th. None of our programs are fully funded by the federal grant we receive, and the number of individuals experiencing limb loss and limb difference is accelerating steadily in the U.S. Your gift would make a significant impact in the much-needed programmatic offerings for our community. Whether you would like to help us extend the capabilities of the National Limb Loss Resource Center, train more peer visitors, increase the number of support groups we offer, send more kids to Camp, or achieve active community grassroots advocacy in all 50 states, we need your gift to expand our work. Here’s how you can choose to give back in meaningful ways on Giving Tuesday.

  • Giving Tuesday Activity 1: Put #Giving into Giving Tuesday
    You can put the #Giving into Giving Tuesday 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 $20,000 in 24 hours.
  • Giving Tuesday Activity 2: Share Your Moments that Matter
    On Giving Tuesday, share your #MomentsThatMatter. Everyone has a triumphant moment in their journey, and we want to share those special moments to uplift and empower our limb loss and limb difference population. We want to show how we continue to thrive despite the challenges presented to us. By sharing your story, you will uplift and inspire others within our community.
  • Giving Tuesday Activity 4: Create Your Own Fundraiser
    On November 30th, you can Create a Facebook Fundraiser to benefit the Amputee Coalition on #GivingTuesday. 100 percent of the Facebook proceeds will go directly to support the Amputee Coalition.
  • Giving Tuesday Activity 5: Show Your Support
    The Amputee Coalition facilitates over 400 support groups and over 1,500 peer visitors across the country, which provide peer support for emotional support, encouragement, and information vital for a full recovery to those living with limb loss or limb difference. On November 30th, you can choose to start or join a Support Group!
