First there was Black Friday. Then Cyber Monday. And now there is Giving Tuesday.
#GivingTuesday – a national day of online philanthropy – has become what I believe is one of the best parts of the holiday season. Perfectly situated between Thanksgiving and the year-end holidays, Giving Tuesday is equal parts gratitude and gift-giving. And just like the holidays, it’s a time to gather and celebrate.
This year, Giving Tuesday is on November 29th, and the Tourette Association of America is asking friends, followers, and families to support and celebrate our Research and Medical programs. As you’ll see below, the Tourette Association’s Research and Medical programs have been the source of innovative new treatment options and scientific discoveries that are unlocking the mysteries of Tourette and other Tic Disorders.
When we gather our resources, we can make a tremendous impact. Every donation makes a difference, so whatever your means, please consider contributing to our Giving Tuesday campaign.
In the meantime, wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and gratitude.
Goofy Goes for the Gold
You just might see Goofy at our next Team Tourette event. but you can be sure that we are not fooling around when it comes to raising awareness for Tourette Syndrome and other Tic Disorders. We invite you to join us from January 5-8, 2017, as we host our annual Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend to support Tourette awareness and raise money to support our mission of making lives better.
Driving Innovation Forward
As with any task in life, there is no progress without hard work. The Research and Medical Department is the engine of the TAA that drives the advancement of TS knowledge by funding groundbreaking research, developing novel treatments, and helping to train the next generation of top-level scientists and doctors who will work to make life better for people with TS. Please consider a gift today to support the Tourette Association of America’s Research & Medical Programs, which have been at the forefront of scientific discovery, research, and treatment advances that serve the Tourette and Tic Disorder community.
NEW! TS Guides for Patients and Providers
The Tourette Association of America (TAA) has created two comprehensive guides that serve as “tool kits” for diagnosing, treating, and living with Tourette Syndrome or another Tic Disorder. These resources were developed in collaboration and consultation with members of the TAA Medical and Scientific Advisory Boards and Center of Excellence Directors.
