Giving Tuesday: A day to help those affected by cancer

December 2, 2013

This year as we pour endless energy and effort into planning Black Fridayshopping strategies and hunting for the best online deals on Cyber Monday, we should also remember another day—a day focused on giving rather than receiving. Giving Tuesday is a campaign to create a national day of giving to kick off the holiday season.

The Cancer Support Community is proud to participate as a partner in this year’s Giving Tuesday movement tomorrow, December 3. We invite you to celebrate Giving Tuesday with us as we strive to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. Because the holiday season can be especially overwhelming to people who are impacted by cancer, CSC’s mission is to offer supportive services to anyone who needs it this holiday season—and throughout the whole year—to help all who are affected by cancer.

Your donation to CSC will help us offer more educational and supportive programs and services, such as the toll-free Cancer Support Helpline; our Frankly Speaking About Cancer educational workshops, books and online resources; the Cancer Experience Registry, a community for survivors; and The Living Room, our online cancer support programs.

So instead of spending endless time and money into doorbusters, crazy online sales and lots of long lines consider giving a gift that lasts and will make a positive difference in the life of someone facing cancer. Donations made on Giving Tuesday and throughout the rest of 2013 will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
