Please join us for our #GivingTuesday campaign to spread awareness about PC and let others know how important this cause is to you!
Because PC is ultra-rare, we are #StrongerTogether! And since PC Project unites patients, friends, family members, physicians, researchers, and pharmaceutical partners in a global effort to find treatments and a cure, we all need to work as one.
For GivingTuesday this year, we invite you to join our team and do the following:
- Mark your calendar for GivingTuesday on Tuesday, November 29th.
- Write a short message you can share on social media, by email, in person or via mail about why you support PC Project and why finding a cure for PC is important to you. (See sample messages below.)
- On November 29th, post and share your message to as many social media sites and emails as you can with an invitation to your friends to raise awareness about PC and to make a gift to PC Project. (If you can post 2 or 3 times that day, you’re a rock star! You can also share other PC posts you see.)
To make this as easy as possible for you, we have included some ideas below.
Sample Messages and Graphics for your Emails or Social Media Posts
Here are some sample messages for #GivingTuesday. You can copy and paste these messages, modify them to fit your situation better, or use them as inspiration to write your own message.
Sample Message 1:
One of my favorite nonprofits to support on #GivingTuesday is PC Project. They are fighting every day to help treat PC, a very painful disease that not many people know about. Will you join me today in making a gift to help them support PC patients like me and find a cure for PC in our lifetime? Thank you! #StrongerTogether bit.ly/give2pc
Sample Message 2:
As many of you already know, I have PC, a very painful disease that makes it difficult for me to walk or stand. But you might not know that an organization called PC Project has made a huge difference in my life. They not only provide a support network for me, they are also fighting every day to develop treatments for PC, and even a cure one day. Will you join me in making a gift to them today for #GivingTuesday? Thank you! We are #StrongerTogether! bit.ly/give2pc
Sample Message 3:
Hello, friends and family! Can I ask you a favor? Would you consider supporting PC Project today for #GivingTuesday? They work hard every day to help treat PC, a very painful disease that my son has struggled with since he was a baby. We just made our donation and it would mean so much to us if you donated too. With your help, families like ours can get the support they need, and hopefully a cure one day too! Make your gift here: bit.ly/give2pc Thank you! #StrongerTogether

And please remember to make your GivingTuesday gift too!
If you are in the UK, you can use https://www.justgiving.com/pcproject-europe link to share and donate to support PC Project’s mission as well as claim Gift Aid.
You can also mail your donation via check or money order to:
P.O. Box 17850

“Should I make a gift too?”
Absolutely! Every donation matters. It also makes it easier to ask your friends to make a gift: “Join me in making a #GivingTuesday gift to PC Project.”
If for any reason you are unable to make a gift this year, we understand. We would still love you to be a part of the #StrongerTogether outreach campaign. Helping us expand our community of supporters is just as valuable.
“Can I still participate if I’m not on social media?”
Yes, you can! We recommend sending your message about why you support PC Project in an email to friends and family on the morning of November 29. And then send a short follow-up message that evening.
“What if I don’t want people to know I have PC?”
I know exactly how you feel. One of the things PC Project is fighting to change is the stigma around PC. We understand your desire to keep that part of your life private.
In your #StrongerTogether message, you can simply say this cause means a lot to your family. Or you can say someone you care about has PC. If you’re having trouble finding the words that feel right to you, please reach out. We’d be happy to help.
“Will we get a reminder on GivingTuesday?”
Yes, you will! Throughout the day, we’ll be sharing 3 stories of how we are #StrongerTogether. In addition to serving as reminders, we hope these emails inspire you to feel that you’re part of a great cause that’s making a real difference for PC patients and their families.
“Can I still participate if it is after the GivingTuesday?”
Yes, you can! Raising awareness and donations are always welcome at any time. Also, we normally count donations through the year’s end to be part of Giving Tuesday/Year End campaign.
