Join us on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 as we participate in the fifth annual #GivingTuesday!
Entering its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by social media and collaboration following the widely recognized shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Known as the unofficial kickoff to the giving season, every year philanthropies are celebrated and communities around the world join together with the common goal of encouraging giving to a worthy cause.
Last year, the Society saw a generous donations of $6,040, up from $2,020 in 2014. Join us in our efforts to raise even more funds this year to support those affected by FSHD and to fund important research to take one step closer towards finding a cure!
On Tuesday, November 29, please consider supporting #GivingTuesday by taking these two simple steps:
- Make a donation HERE.

Last year, organizations that participated in #GivingTuesday received a total of over $116 million dollars via one million online donations. The #GivingTuesday campaign also made 114 billion Twitter impressions and 917,000 Facebook impressions.
