Cure Our Ovarian Cancer is Celebrating GivingTuesday in New Zealand with #GivingCuresDay joining millions around the world participating in the global generosity movement
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 kiwis to give back on December 3rd, and throughout the year.
This year we are asking for your help to give back to women affected by low-grade serous carcinoma by donating, fundraising and showing your support for Cure Our Ovarian Cancer.
Today, Wednesday the 19th of November, we start our most ambitious fundraising goal yet. To raise $50 000 globally for research over three weeks.
For women with low-grade serous carcinoma, time is the most precious gift. The donations we receive help fund research to find better treatments to help women keep living their best life with the people they love.
For $50 000 we could:
Grow and genetically sequence 10 unique cancer cell lines, which can be copied and shared for research projects around the world.
Fund a scientist’s salary for six months.
Test the cancer killing efficacy of 30 different drugs on a cancer model in the lab.
Fund a unique research grant.
Discover something important that will seed a change in the way every woman is treated in the future.
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven 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. You can create a fundraiser, hold an event, ask friends for support. You could donate to lifesaving research. Or you could show your support by sharing our social media posts, telling your friends why you think what we do is important, or having a conversation with someone about the symptoms of ovarian cancer. 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.
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
We’ve prepared a poster and a few of our favourite recipes to help you host a WorkplaceTeal Tea fundraiser for #GivingCuresDay.
Help us create a better future for women with low-grade serous ovarian cancer.
