The Periodic Paralysis Association Celebrates GivingTuesday with our “Facts That Give Back” Awareness Campaign, joining millions around the world participating in the global generosity movement on December 1, 2020.
The Periodic Paralysis Association is responding to meet the needs of those living with Periodic Paralysis by spreading awareness through a series of real facts, true stories and news about the latest research taking place, and creative ways that everyone can give back to the Periodic Paralysis community. With all these new insights, our hope is to inspire everyone to feel empowered to take action and help us discover solutions for a better future.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.
As has been the case for many rare disorders, the PPA rose out of a group of individuals who found each other over the internet seeking answers about their rare conditions. The PPA’s mission was to establish a forum in which patients could communicate with each other, gather credible, science-based information, and gain access to the leading experts in the field. We’re ready to continue this mission with our GivingTuesday with our Facts That Give Back awareness campaign.
“It is time to show the world what it means to be a champion for others. The PPA is dedicated to uplifting the Periodic Paralysis community more than ever before.” – Linda Feld, PPA President
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday.
Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 14.2 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved.
