Join debra of America on #GivingTuesday
This #GivingTuesday, debra of America is celebrating the great strides that have been made in research for Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) and the progress that we will continue to see in the search for treatments and a cure – none of which could be possible without the generosity of our donors. We recently launched a research campaign entitled #600Strong4EB, which involves getting 600 donors to join us in our efforts to fund EB research by December 31, 2016. If we reach our goal, an anonymous donor will contribute $100,000!
Alongside this research campaign and in celebration of #GivingTuesday, we are launching a social media campaign that will run through the month of November. This campaign will highlight advocates, donors, and EB Community members, just like you! If you would like to participate, please email aigerim [at] debra [dot] org with a photo of yourself and a 2-3 sentence response to the question: Why is it important to give towards research for EB? You could be featured on debra of America’s social media platforms!
WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. #GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, with a team of influencers and founding partners, we launched a global movement that has engaged over 10,000 organizations worldwide. Click here to learn more.
