Giving Tuesday

Unlock the Power of Giving Tuesday with Lupus Canada

Giving Tuesday is more than just a day; it’s the world’s largest generosity movement. Originating in 2012, it’s a reminder that kindness knows no bounds. It encourages us to make someone smile, assist a neighbor or a stranger, stand up for what we believe in, and extend a helping hand to those in need. Since its inception, GivingTuesday has blossomed into a global force, empowering individuals and organizations to transform their communities and, by extension, the world.

GivingTuesday is the day when Canadians, charities, and businesses unite to celebrate the act of giving. It’s about showing gratitude, lending a helping hand, sharing kindness, and sharing what you have with those who need it most. Every act of generosity, no matter how small, counts. Every person has something to offer.

Lupus Canada & Giving Tuesday

Lupus Canada wants to revisit the core of Giving Tuesday, focusing on the significance of kindness. Even a simple act like sharing your story can be the most precious gift, especially for those facing similar challenges. “Stories are a communal currency of humanity,” writes Tahir Shah in Arabian Nights. When you share your story, you’re offering an intimate part of yourself. It’s a profound act of generosity. Sharing your story can be incredibly rewarding, sometimes even life-saving.

As we concentrate on advocacy this fall, we’re excited to share an important event in early December. We’ll be in Ottawa, speaking with government officials about equity and access to patient care within the lupus community.

The obstacles faced by lupus patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and advocates in accessing quality healthcare and support are well-known. But together, we can find solutions. Your voice is powerful, and your presence can spark change. Join us in this pivotal event, where your experiences and insights can help shape a brighter future for everyone living with lupus.
