For many shoppers, the holiday season is kicked off with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But now, Canadians also have a day dedicated entirely to giving back. Giving Tuesday is a new Canadian movement focused on making a difference in your community by giving or volunteering on December 2, 2014.
Transforming Faces would be honoured to have your support this Giving Tuesday. Below you will find a list of ways you can get involved and help transform the lives of children born with cleft lip and palate:
- Help raise awareness about the importance of comprehensive cleft care
- Spread the word about TF’s work on social media
- Plan a birthday party fundraiser through EchoAge
- Donate your used car via Donate A Car Canada
- Cash in your closet with Closets & Causes
- Transform the holidays with the help of our fundraising kit
- Make a donation to transform lives!
Transforming Faces is a Canadian charity dedicated to providing multidisciplinary cleft care for people born with cleft lip and palate. While surgery is important, TF recognizes that it’s just the beginning of the journey. In reality, cleft patients require years of other treatments, from speech therapy to orthodontic work, which are rarely accessible or affordable. TF seeks to change that.
Our multi-disciplinary approach to cleft care not only physically transforms faces, but also radically changes the trajectory of a child’s life by allowing them to finish school, start families, and participate in society without fear of discrimination (see Lives Transformed).
Note that 100% of all donations go directly to our international programs thanks to a private foundation that covers our overhead expenses. All donations over $200 will also be matched so your impact will be doubled!
We hope you’ll join Canadians in celebrating Giving Tuesday and help us close the gap in cleft care! If we can provide any support, please get in touch at 416-222-6581 or by email.
