PMP Pals join millions around the globe to celebrate a day of giving. The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday is recognized as GivingTuesday (all one word).

In 2012, with the simple idea of taking a day at the beginning of the holiday season to focus on doing good, GivingTuesday’s global movement continues to inspire individuals and communities to unleash the power of kindness and generosity.

The great success of GivingTuesday is the unlimited reach of opportunities for participating organizations and communities. There is no fee to participate; organizations are empowered to develop their GivingTuesday activities to best support their mission.

The spirit of empathy, kindness, and generosity of GivingTuesday mirrors the mission and vision of PMP Pals created by Gabriella Graham in 1998. Offering PMP patients and caregivers information, support, encouragement, and hope energize us to continue to honor Gabriella’s legacy.
