#GivingTuesday is December 3
- Tuesday, December 3, 2019

GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that occurs every year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Created by a group of people in New York City who wanted to inspire people to give back amidst the holiday shopping season, the movement has raised over $400 million since it began in 2012.
This year on GivingTuesday, which falls on Tuesday, December 3, Facebook will match every dollar raised up to $7 million overall and up to $100,000 per organization for donations made on the platform that day. Your contribution to CBCF can have twice the impact on the Self-Seeding Theory of breast cancer research led by Dr. Larry Norton, the Senior Vice President of the Office of the President and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, Scientific Advisor of the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation.
Advances in science and medicine have resulted in a 40% decline in deaths in the U.S. from breast cancer. While this is certainly a reason to remain hopeful, there is still much work to be done. The money raised by CBCF helps fund the innovative research initiatives that are necessary to get us closer to a cure.
Give in honor of a loved one, or give to support a friend who is battling breast cancer. No amount is too big or too small. Remember, your donation will only be doubled if you donate on Facebook. Set your reminders for Tuesday, December 3 and visit our Facebook fundraiser to make your donation. And don’t forget to share our page with your family and friends to help spread the word about breast cancer research.
GivingTuesday may only occur once a year, but their mission to encourage people to give back is one that we should remember all year long. If you’d like to donate to CBCF at any time throughout the year, visit our donation page here. Or, if you’d like to become more closely involved with the organization, become a volunteer or a CBCF ambassador. We are always on the lookout for both and welcome any additional ideas you may have to help support breast cancer research.
