The CRN is a proud participant in Giving Tuesday – a global movement encouraging people to “do good.” This is our fifth year celebrating the event that has inspired millions to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. The Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving has been designated as the global day for giving back. It was created in response to the shopping frenzy surrounding Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Here’s a glimpse of the overall impact from 2018’s Giving Tuesday:
Giving Tuesday – December 3rd, 2019
This year we’ve asked community members to reflect on those who’ve helped along the cystinosis journey. Leading up to Giving Tuesday, we are sharing some of those experiences to recognize the sacrifice, generosity, and selflessness many of us have been fortunate to benefit from. A nod to those #GreatGivers. Click on their stories below.
Ways to Help
Your online donation will benefit our cystinosis community as we continue to provide grassroots research, meaningful support and educational programs. However, there are many ways to “give” beyond monetary donations. Visit our How to Help page.
UPDATE: Our #GreatGivers campaign surpassed an online fundraising goal of $5,000!
A special thank you to each person who has supported the CRN in our quest for improved treatments and ultimately, a cure for cystinosis.
