GivingTuesday – the global day of giving
Join us for the 8th annual GivingTuesday on December 1, 2020
GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
Friends of Ostomates Worldwide Canada is again participating in #givingtuesdayca and as a special request, ask you to visit our Giving Tuesday profile here.
Edirisa has just had a colostomy after living with Hirschsprung’s Disease being unable to pass stool normally. Due to this condition, he’s become malnourished and quite unwell as he’s had stool backed up in his bowels and only gets a bowel movement once every two weeks or so. He’s had the first of three operations to correct this condition and these colostomy bags are lifesavers for him.
Help us to ship much-needed ostomy supplies to countries such as Kenya, Uganda, Iran, Ukraine, and others. Your gift is welcome!
