This year, on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, ASDA will be a part of a call to action that will change the calendar and help make history. Along with thousands of other nonprofits and friends, we are inaugurating the "opening day" of giving around the annual shopping and spending season.
Let this day be a day dedicated to giving-- when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and more will come together for #GivingTuesday-- a movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better, and smarter giving during the Holiday Season.
We invite you to be part of this celebration by making a tax deductible donation to the American Scent Dog Association. Your gift will help us bring HOPE to our community by supporting our search and rescue efforts and cancer research.
With canine participants in the early phases of cancer research at UAMS, our goal is to develop SAFE, non-invasive detection methods that will help diagnose cancers EARLY. So far, our dogs have more than a 90% accuracy rate (and the lack is often a result of handler or administrative malfunction). Our dogs ARE proving they CAN find ovarian and thyroid cancers in urine samples: can you help them prove this to the medical community so it can become an accepted testing method?
We will feature all those who support us o_n #GivingTuesday on our website, Facebook page and Twitter account. We want to get the word out what a great movement #GivingTuesday is, and we want to whole-heartedly show how GRATEFUL we are for the support we receive.
Thank you and many blessings this season!
