#GivingTuesday - Give a Gift to Inspire the Future of Trauma Care!

Friday, November 2, 2018

On November 27, EAST is joining a global day of generosity, #GivingTuesday. Celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and year-end giving. It's a day when you can make a big impact on the future of trauma research. 

Since the launch of EAST's #GivingTuesday campaign in 2015, EAST donors have raised thousands for the EAST Trauma Research Scholarship, which supports the research of promising surgeon-scientists whose work is critical to advancing the science of caring for the injured patient in an environment of scarce funding opportunities.

You can help EAST continue to support the work of deserving investigators on #GivingTuesday by making a donation anytime now through November 27, 2018. In lieu of that coffee today, consider a $5 donation or a long-term investment by opting in for recurring donations.

Thank you you for giving back this #GivingTuesday and best wishes for the holiday season.
