Giving Tuesday – Another great opportunity to give!

Charles Kettering wrote, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” How fitting that Giving Tuesday was created to provide an opportunity for everyone to give and make a life.

This relatively new philanthropic, fundraising initiative, was first launched in the USA in 2012 and then in Canada in 2013. It was purposely scheduled to follow Black Friday and Cyber Monday to generate a movement and celebrate giving back! Hundreds of charities throughout North America are now listed as partners and Chiropractic for the World Foundation is one of them.

Did you know that nearly 25% of all annual giving is gifted in the month of December? Giving can include financial donations, time in volunteering, gifts in kind, and sponsorships. We hope that one of these options resonates for you to give to Chiropractic for the World Foundation on Giving Tuesday and beyond.

We are sincerely grateful to everyone that has supported us in the past, those that continue to do so, and those that hope to in the future.

The New Year holds incredible opportunities for our foundation to expand the gift of chiropractic worldwide! To date, we have received requests from nearly 15 countries eagerly waiting for us to visit and help establish their access to chiropractic. We are in the process of researching 3 viable nations on the list and will base our decisions on need, available support, options for establishing permanent clinics and/or education, and cost effectiveness. We invite you to join us and support us in every way that works for you.
