December 3, 2019 is #GivingTuesday. We want you to help support science for the benefit of humanity by giving to the unexpected.
#GivingTuesday was started to bring people together and encourage giving back after the consumerism of Black Friday. Now a global movement, the event sees participation in Canada from more than 6,500 charities and businesses, as well as millions of individuals.
We hope you will participate in making a difference this #GivingTuesday, by giving to the unexpected. Your donation will support basic research that will create a better world, giving scientists at the Weizmann Institute the chance to dream big, follow their curiosity and ask questions with global impact.
By now, you have seen some of the amazing stories of how the unexpected has led to incredible breakthroughs in fertility, climate science, cancer treatment and heart research. With your support, we look forward to the new ways that unexpected outcomes in research will change the world.
This year, your donation to #GivingTuesday will have more impact thanks to the generosity of Laurence Paperman and Kerry Kaufman-Paperman who will match donations (up to $5,000).
Every donation made between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on December 3 will be matched. That’s twice the support to empower scientists at the Weizmann Institute to find an unexpected cure, a new way to heal, ways to save our planet and even new life.
