On the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving back to thousands of charitable organizations supporting causes worldwide. Over 8,000 partners, including MJFF, are joining Giving Tuesday this year to encourage others to learn more about their mission. Crain’s New York recently spoke with MJFF’s Co-Founder and Executive Vice Chairman Debi Brooks about the Foundation’s plans for this year’s Giving Tuesday.
We kicked off the giving season last month by asking our online community to share why they’re speeding a cure for Parkinson’s through our #UNselfie campaign. To date, over 70 #unselfies have been shared, illustrating the urgent need for a Parkinson's cure.
In celebration of Giving Tuesday, MJFF will be giving away a new, limited-edition Michael J. Fox ceramic quote mug — not yet available on our Shop Fox site — to the first 50 people who sign up for our monthly giving program to support high-impact Parkinson’s research all year long.
Join us this Giving Tuesday and every day in your own way. Share your #unselfie and encourage members in your community to join The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay connected to latest in Parkinson’s research.
