This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, the NAFC is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Or as we like to call it - #GivingHealthDay!
Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.
This year as #GivingTuesday falls at the end of American Diabetes Month, we are thrilled to share that our partner Henry Schein Medical has committed to matching up to $5,000 worth of donations made to the NAFC this #GivingTuesday by supplying up to $5,000 worth of diabetic testing supplies for our patients. You can help bring these much needed donated supplies to our patients by making a donation to the NAFC!
Making a donation to the NAFC is easy and secure, simply visit http://www.nafcclinics.org/content/donate.
