On December 1, 2015, supporters of the Vasculitis Foundation participated in “Giving Tubesday”, an international day of giving to raise funds for the VF Research Program. The campaign played on the importance of funding research and the test tubes we often use to conduct research. The VF is currently funding 14 studies on vasculitis and two fellowships.

Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
