Today is Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
It’s the antidote to the pre-Christmas consumer whirlwind when retailers offer shoppers the chance to snap up fantastic deals at discounted prices.
It’s also a time when people around the world give to good causes that are close to their hearts.
In the UK alone, Black Friday sees a retail spend of over £1 billion. That’s a lot of money, a lot of good deals and a lot of savings!
With the average discount of 44% in 2017, this represents some £40 million saved by people throughout the UK. Just imagine if that was channelled into research into brain tumours.
Could you give some of your seasonal savings to help raise awareness and fund vital, sustainable research into brain tumours at our Centres of Excellence?
Professor Silvia Marino, the Director of our Centre at Queen Mary University of London, explains the importance of giving to research: “The funds granted to my team make a huge difference to research into brain tumours.
“They are opening up world-first ways of finding more effective therapies for brain tumour patients. The Brain Tumour Research charity is providing tangible hope. Hope for the future. Hope for patients. Hope for families. Hope for a cure.”
Why not go even further and become a regular giver ? For example, for just £5 per month, you could be giving essential day-to-day laboratory supplies to our scientists desperately need to continue their ground-breaking research.
Give today to help fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
