GivingTuesday – A Global Day of Giving

Happy GivingTuesday! Today we are giving a voice to rare diseases by sharing the most impactful episodes of our docu-series. Then at 6 PM tonight, join us LIVE on Facebook because we have an exciting announcement to share with you all.

Last year we raised over $17,000 for GivingTuesday and we can’t thank you enough for your support. This year we want to go above and beyond to raise money that will help support Dr. Cannon’s research and help us continue to build a library of science-based information to educate everyone about Periodic Paralysis.

With your help, we know we can reach our new goal of $25,000.

There are so many ways to get involved. Here’s how you can help:

1. Share this video and all our videos all day long to help spread awareness about this complex, mysterious rare disease. You can tag your friends, share the videos with your own personal story, or just forward the links to everyone.

2. Sponsor a PP Mouse or Research Hours in Dr. Cannon’s lab for as little as $10. That’s right, now you can sponsor actual PP research monthly or as a one-time donation.

3. Get an “I Never Fake It” T-Shirt for yourself or for a friend as a gift. We love showing off these shirts because it gives us a chance to spread awareness and explain PP to others.

4. Donate directly through Facebook and they will match it! To help raise awareness of charitable causes and encourage donors’ generosity, Meta will match $8 million USD in qualifying donations made on Facebook during GivingTuesday. So match away!

We can’t thank you enough for your continued support.



The Periodic Paralysis Association has been #GivingAVoice to those who are living with a very disease called Periodic Paralysis over the past year and now we want you to help us share those voices with as many as possible this GivingTuesday season.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of radical generosity to transform communities and the world. GivingTuesday will take place on November 30, 2021.

It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday⁠⁠—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes—everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.

This GivingTuesday the PPA is #GivingAVoice to those living with PP with videos about advocating, education, vulnerability, and sharing. Look out for a new #GivingTuesday episode every Tuesday in November at 10 AM EST. Share these videos far and wide to help us unleash the power of radical generosity. Then on November 30, join us as we go live and celebrate  GivingTuesday!
