#GivingTuesday is November 28! And this year a long-time and generous donor will match every dollar you donate to Breast Cancer Action up to $15,000.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving back in the midst of the consumerism that surrounds the holiday season. We’re a small organization with an outsized impact that never takes money from corporations that profit from or contribute to cancer. And we raise a large portion of our funding from individuals like you during this time of year. This is a great opportunity to double the impact of your donation.
We’re at a critical moment in history, when what we do—or don’t do—will not only define who we are as a country, but also whether—and how—we will work together to address and end the breast cancer epidemic. That’s why Breast Cancer Action’s role as an independent cancer activist organization and rapid-response watchdog is essential right now. Our work is centered on breast cancer, but our impact goes far beyond the disease. We work at the intersection of feminism, environmental justice, and health activism. And that’s why we’re an essential part of the larger movement working to address the threats from the current administration that is targeting vulnerable communities, challenging established science, and bolstering corporate control of our regulatory protection agencies.
Given the current threats we’re facing, a steadfast and generous Breast Cancer Action member will leverage their gift and match every dollar you donate, up to $15,000, so your #GivingTuesday gift will have double the impact. Please include Breast Cancer Action in your #GivingTuesday donations and help us raise $30,000 to fund our work to address and end the breast cancer epidemic.
Save the date and spread the word about #GivingTuesday. With so much on the line right now, Breast Cancer Action has never been more urgently needed. Your gift will make sure we have the resources we need at this critical moment as we work to achieve health justice for all women at risk of and living with breast cancer.
