Support CAF on Giving Tuesday Now – May 5
May 2, 2020 – A truly global threat like COVID-19 affects every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community. Here are ways you can give thanks and make a difference on May 5, #GivingTuesdayNow:
- Donate to the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation. (Click here to make a donation.) We continue our dedicated fight against thalassemia in the midst of the pandemic and your support is crucial to our effectiveness. If you are able, make a donation to help us make up for funds lost due to cancellation of our spring events – and please forward this email to others and encourage them to make a donation if they can. (We know many people are experiencing financial difficulties right now.)
- If you are capable of donating blood, make an appointment to do so at your local blood donation center. And if you cannot, encourage others to do so. The pandemic has seriously decreased the amount of blood available for ANYONE who needs it.
- Show your support for the healthcare providers on the frontlines of the pandemic. Post or tweet your support with the hashtag #CAFSupportsCovidWorkers and let them know you value their bravery and their commitment.
Funds raised support medical research to fight thalassemia, as well as patient support services for thalassemia patients in the United States.
Thank you. Your support during this challenging time, in any fashion, makes a huge difference.
