2020 has been a rough year but this organization learned to PIVOT! We have hosted virtual events to stay within health and safety guidelines. We have not turned anyone away who applied and qualified for a Help$ Grant. We brought together physicians from two states to discuss Sarcoma research. We will be donating to research again this year. All this because of your support! Thank you.
To continue to do this in 2021, we will need your support again. Please check your mail, email and social media for year-end information. Join us in an effort to continue to support Sarcoma research and Help$ Grant funding for patients in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington in 2021.
We are preparing for the final month of 2020. We are looking back and planning forward. One way we are doing this is through GivingTuesday on December 1, 2020. This is a nationally recognized day of giving. We are launching our Gimme 5 campaign. If you donate $5 along with many of your friends and family and their friends and family, this will add up to help us continue to support the Help$ Grant funds and ongoing Sarcoma Research throughout 2021.
In 2020 as of the end of Oct., 90 Help$ Grants have been provided to Sarcoma patients. To replicate this in 2021 under the Gimme 5 GivingTuesday event, we need 4,500 of you to give $5. Please consider donating on Dec. 1, 2020 to GivingTuesday Northwest Sarcoma Foundation's Gimme 5 efforts.
