This May 5, the FSHD Society is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow. This is a global day of giving and unity that arose as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. This is a day when we can all come together and give back, no matter who or where we are. Every act of generosity counts! Help a neighbor, sign up for a Walk & Roll, order takeout from a local restaurant, give to causes, or advocate for an issue, like FSHD.
Even though we are physically distanced, we can remain connected through acts of kindness and generosity. There is no reason that our physical separation means we cannot provide the emotional, financial, and social supports that nurture our families and communities.
Despite the uncertainty of these unprecedented times, we can all make a difference. Remember– your time, your kindness, your skills, your voice are all things you can give in addition to charitable donations!
