Your Generosity Can Change Lives: The Power of Giving Tuesday

By Clara Schlemeyer and Adrianna Colucci

Among the busyness of the holiday season, don’t forget to pause and reflect on the friends, family and organizations that have positively impacted your 2023 year. Giving Tuesday, which is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, is a global movement that encourages people to contribute to the charitable organizations that largely influence their lives. As you harness compassion and generosity during this season of giving, consider extending it to the Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) Foundation. Participating in Giving Tuesday at the RLS Foundation is an opportunity to make a difference and support those suffering from this often devastating disease.

The Impact of Giving Tuesday

Your participation in Giving Tuesday is essential for providing the means to fund critical research that aims to improve diagnosis methods, better our understanding of RLS, and develop more effective treatments. You become part of the solution to this complex medical challenge. Further, Giving Tuesday offers a unique opportunity to connect with the RLS community. People from all walks of life come together with a shared purpose – to support those living with RLS. You can become part of a supportive network that provides comfort and encouragement to individuals and families affected by RLS.

Education and Awareness

Another crucial aspect of the RLS Foundation’s mission is enhanced education and awareness. Through Giving Tuesday donations, the Foundation can create and distribute valuable resources, organize awareness campaigns, and promote a better understanding of RLS among healthcare professionals and the public. Our resources include over 30 patient handouts, a monthly webinar series, a quarterly magazine NightWalkers, and a free physician education webinar series. By participating in this annual event, you help dispel the misconceptions and stigmas often associated with the condition.

The Joy of Giving

Your participation in Giving Tuesday at the RLS Foundation extends far beyond just supporting a good cause; it’s also about experiencing the joy of giving. The act of contributing to something greater than oneself can be immensely fulfilling. Knowing that your donation, no matter how small, can make a difference in someone’s life is a powerful motivator and a source of personal satisfaction.

The importance of Giving Tuesday lies in its ability to inspire philanthropy and unity and serves as a powerful reminder of the impact we can collectively achieve as a community. Your participation will further our outreach related to RLS research, advocacy and education. So, mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 28, open your heart, and make a meaningful contribution this Giving Tuesday to help the RLS Foundation in its mission to improve the lives of countless individuals living with RLS.
