From all of us at the TMA, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! We hope the holiday gives you an opportunity to be with family and friends, reflect, and share gratitude.
Did you know that #GivingTuesday is coming up on Tuesday, November 28th? #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday.
There are a few ways you can join in on #GivingTuesday, and support non-profit organizations like the TMA. Donations to the TMA fuel our research and education programs that are improving the quality of life of individuals with rare neuroimmune disorders.
- Donate on our Facebook page: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Facebook have partnered to match donations up to $1000 per donate button on #GivingTuesday, starting at 8 AM ET. Facebook is also waiving donation fees on #GivingTuesday, meaning 100% of your donation will reach the TMA. You can find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/myelitis/.
- Create your own fundraising page on our website: If you don’t want to use Facebook, or don’t have an account, you can always create a fundraising page on our website. You can set a fundraising goal, and send the link to your family and friends. To create your own page, visit: http://tma.ong/2BdrDxz
- Review the latest resources on our website and send a donation via Snail Mail or directly on our website if you find them helpful: Did you know we have a resource library that includes newsletter articles, podcasts, symposium videos, and summaries of new research articles? We also have the Myelitis Helpline, an online tool that was developed by The Transverse Myelitis Association to answer your questions about our organization and rare neuroimmune disorders.
This Thanksgiving, the TMA is thankful for the support of our community members, which has allowed us to drive research and other programs that improve the lives of those with rare neuroimmune disorders. From all of the staff and board members of the TMA, thank you!
