#G I V I N G T U E S D A Y
Help give a voice to a widely unknown disease.
Since its creation in 1993, the PKD Foundation of Canada has raised more than $1 million towards research, support and help for families living with polycystic kidney disease (PKD). From the first research grant awarded in 1999, the PKD Foundation of Canada has set up chapters and support groups across the country, built an expansive and passionate volunteer network, and connected with PKD groups around the world.
Donate this #GivingTuesday to the PKD Foundation of Canada to show your support of the 66,000 Canadians and 12.5 million people worldwide affected by this disease. We are the only national organization solely dedicated to fighting PKD through research, education, advocacy, support and awareness.
"We’re going to find donors. We’re going to raise awareness. We’re going to do something; not just accept the situation and settle into a nice long lifestyle of dialysis until the end."- Arie Pekar, transplant recipient and patient advocate

About GivingTuesday: The Global Day of Giving
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
GivingTuesday harnesses the influence of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
