#GivingTuesday: A Heartfelt Thank You!

Executive Director Anastasia Henry is pictured above with Travis, who received mentorship through ATF prior to donating a kidney to a stranger this May. Now Travis volunteers with us and serves as a mentor himself.

Eric, the father of a newborn and working 2 jobs to support his family gave a kidney to a stranger earlier this yeara.

Lisa, a single parent living hours away from the nearest transplant center, found a way to donate a kidney to her 14-year-old daughter, despite the struggles of being out of work during the recovery period.

Nyan, a young college student who found out his mother needed a liver transplant was brave enough to donate part of his liver to her.

All these stories were helped by the donations and volunteer efforts from our generous community of supporters. And we here at The American Transplant Foundation want to THANK YOU each and every one of you! It is because of generous people like you, that we are able to continue our mission:

To find a donor for everyone in need of an organ transplant in the United States.

There’s no doubt about it — living organ donors are heroes. But even heroes need a little help sometimes!

American Transplant Foundation is joining organizations and communities around the world for  #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, November 27th. People around the world will rally for the causes they believe in and celebrate the power of giving to help others. On November 27th, we would love for you to join us in our first ever #GivingTuesday efforts to help us raise $50,000 by the end of this year.

As an organization with very lean operating costs, more than ever, we’re relying on your support of this important campaign! 100% of all funds from this campaign will go towards crucial financial assistance grants for families, both living donors and transplant recipients. Our grants cover essential living expenses during the transplant surgery and recovery period for donors, recipients, and their families. Unique programs provide free educational and emotional support to help patients through every step of the process.

Our goal is to help 100 families, and it’s going to take $50,000. 

Join us, three ways:

  1. Give Directly! (As little as $5 can make a difference! Inspired to join us early? We are already accepting donations. )
  2. Amazon Smile Donation! (With holiday gift givinng around the corner, Amazon Smiles is another great way to help us reach our goals. It’s easy to link your account, and Amazon gives up to 50% to us through select purchases!)
  3. Spread the Word! (Share this link on your social channels!)

You can read more stories about lives across the country that have been saved through living organ donation with the help of American Transplant Foundation. We’ll also be sharing more stories on our Facebook page.

Thank you for your life-saving support!
