Giving Tuesday is a global day of
giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. When you donate
on Giving Tuesday, you
support our Chapter's continuous efforts to provide service for families with
ALS in eastern Missouri and central and southern Illinois.
This year, your Giving Tuesday donations will benefit our local
grant-giving program, Jane’s Angel Fund. This program helps alleviate the
financial burden for families facing ALS by helping with:
- Transportation—as people
with ALS lose their ability to walk, they require mobility devices to assist
them while they continue to keep their world large, requiring transportation
and modifications that can accommodate these devices.
- Adaptive equipment—a variety
of devices used to complete daily tasks can be the difference for someone with ALS
asking others for help and being able to maintain their independence.
modifications—structural changes to the home – a place where people feel
comfort, where memories were made, and where they feel secure – can allow people
with ALS to remain living where they are.
relief—along with people living with the disease, caregivers also need
assistance and time to refill and renew in order for them to properly care for
their loved one with ALS.
ALS is a very expensive diagnosis, reimbursements for items not covered by
insurance, such as medical co-pays, can make a big difference.
