Join Us for #GivingTuesday

Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

Autoimmune Association is excited to join in this global giving movement of #GivingTuesday! The demonstration of giving by so many generous people worldwide will help individuals and their families receive resources they need to fight the battle against autoimmune diseases.

Autoimmune Association is the nation’s only non-profit organization dedicated to bringing a national focus to autoimmune diseases as a category of diseases.  There are over 140 autoimmune diseases and 50 million Americans are diagnosed with at least one autoimmune disease, often more than one.  Autoimmune Association is dedicated to the eradication of autoimmune disease and the alleviation of suffering it brings.  Our patient education program helps thousands of people annually.

“Autoimmune Association is thrilled to take part of this global movement. It’s amazing to see the impact we can have when the autoimmune disease community links together. Every dollar counts and every donation makes a difference.”  Katie Simons, autoimmune patient & Autoimmune Association staff member

Your gift of $10 helps provide four patients educational material to educate them about autoimmune diseases, connect interested patients with research programs, provide them with physician referrals to help arrive at a diagnosis and eventual treatment plan to improve their quality of life.  Our #GivingTuesday campaign goal is $10,000 to provide patient education services to 4,000 people impacted by autoimmune related diseases!

It’s easy to donate.
