November 28th is Giving Tuesday – A Critical Day for Multiple System Atrophy Research
GIVING TUESDAY HAS JUST BECOME THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF THE YEAR FOR MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY!
Whether you are a Multiple System Atrophy patient yourself or you are a care partner, family member or friend of someone who is or was affected by MSA, you know the challenges and heartbreak caused by this disease. You know the impact is serious. You know the need to find a treatment or cure is urgent. This Holiday season all of us who know the ravages of this disease - patients, family members, friends, neighbors, colleagues, healthcare providers... all need to come together as a community and unite in one massive effort to raise the needed funds for research, education, support, advocacy and awareness initiatives.
That day of unity for MSA has come... GIVING TUESDAY NOVEMBER 28th!

Giving Tuesday marks the official kickoff of the 2017 Crowdrise Holiday Challenge. Crowdrise is a fundraising platform that empowers individuals to share their personal stories and inspire friends and family to give to important charitable causes. During the Crowdrise Holiday Challenge, corporate sponsors provide bonus prizes to the top fundraising organizations. This year over $500,000 in bonus prizes is up for grabs along with another $100,000 in Matching Donor Funds on Giving Tuesday!
For the last two years in a row the MSA Coalition has placed 3rd in this prestigious national fundraising competition and earned over $50,000 in cash bonus prizes, all while competing with more than 2000 other charities! This is an amazing achievement for our small organization. Our past success is due solely to people like you who have embraced the simple storytelling tools provided by Crowdrise to help make a difference for those affected by Multiple System Atrophy.
Giving Tuesday is your chance to make a real impact for MSA by adding your voice, your story, your photos to this campaign. Linked by our Crowdrise pages we will be putting the real faces and names of individuals out there so the world can know who we are fighting for and why it matters! This can make a powerful impact for this disease not only in dollars raised but also in awareness!
Last year, together with your help, we raised $240,000 during the 6 week Crowdrise Holiday Challenge period, PLUS we secured an additional $60,000 in check and stock donations during the Holiday season, PLUS we won the overall 3rd place Crowdrise Holiday Challenge bonus prize of $25,000! In total, our team of approximately 100 active grassroots fundraisers, raised and won over $325,000! That’s right, with just 100 fundraisers we raised 1/3 of a million dollars!
We know we can do even better for MSA with your help!

Imagine what we can achieve if 200, 400, or even more personal MSA stories are shared and then shared again and again by your family and friends and all their contacts. Imagine what an impact this would make for MSA awareness and fundraising!
United in our efforts, could we raise $750,000? $1 Million?? What about $2 Million???
Don’t we really want to see MILLIONS of $$$$ going into MSA research, support and education programs? This amount of money can make a real difference in important research for better diagnostic tools, disease-altering treatments, and a cure; but we can only do it if you and your family join the team!
So, what do you think? Will you share your family's MSA story by joining the MSA Coalition fundraising team right now?
It really is so easy and doesn’t need to take a whole lot of time.
