The holiday season is here! This is a great time to pause and give thanks to those who have been supporting us for years - we know that without you we could never achieve what we have. Please know that we are truly grateful for having you on our side!
If you would like to support our project again this year, a great opportunity is coming soon - on Giving Tuesday, November 30th. This is an annual event to celebrate charity, community, and human kindness. GlobalGiving will mark the day by giving away $1 million in bonus funds, to be divided proportionally among all the donations (up to $2,500 per donor) made on that day. GlobalGiving will also add 100% bonuses to those donors who sign up for new monthly donations (up to $200 per donor).
Your donations will go to buy Foscavir, a medication used to treat viral infections. It is an important drug for immunosuppressed cancer patients undergoing bone marrow transplants or high-dose chemotherapy that brings down patients' immune system. Foscavir is not registered in Russia and for this reason cannot be purchased inside Russia. The hospitals rely on charities' help to bring the medication to the patients from abroad. The hospitals have to have the medication on hand, because it has to be administered within days, or sometimes hours, to get the infection under control.
Thanks to your support, we were able to spend $9,719 this year and support 7 patients. We hope that with your help we can do even more before the end of the year. Thanks again for staying with us and hope to hear from you on Giving Tuesday!
