#GivingTuesday is celebrated annually as a global day of giving, fueled by the power of connection and collaboration, on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This year on Tuesday, December 3, you can be part of an international celebration of generosity and giving back to improve the lives of others. 

By supporting The ALS Association Golden West Chapter this #GivingTuesday, you can express your gratitude and kick off the holiday season of giving, increase the impact of your support, and provide help and hope to people with ALS and their loved ones.  And remember, your donation is tax-deductible, so please make a generous gift this #GivingTuesday!

Thank you for your support!
It is only together that we will defeat ALS.
