Thank You for Your Support on #GivingTuesday
EAST asked and you gave! Thank you to all the EAST members who supported EAST on #GivingTuesday 2017; more than $22,000 was raised to fund initiatives designed to reduce the incidence of trauma and improve the care of the injured patient.
Thank you as well to the EAST committee members who accepted the committee challenge to raise funds for #GivingTuesday. The Annual Scientific Assembly Committee chaired by Dr. Matthew Martin took first place in the 100% participation challenge. Their collective contribution was made in memory of Dr. Matthew Davis and will be used to support future Development Fund initiatives.
The Guidelines Committee chaired by Dr. Bryce Robinson won the second challenge, raising $3,500 for #GivingTuesday 2017. Thank you to all for participating!

On November 28, 2017, EAST is joining a national day of generosity, #GivingTuesday. Celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It's a day when you can make a big impact on supporting initiatives designed to reduce the incidence of trauma and improve the care of injured patients.
Since the launch of EAST's #GivingTuesday campaign in 2015, EAST supporters have raised thousands to fund the EAST Trauma Research Scholarship, which supports the work of surgeon-scientists.
