Support the Spina Bifida Association this Giving Tuesday, November 29th

We all have gifts to give and Giving Tuesday is about more than just making a donation, it’s about communing with others in the spirit of giving. It’s a day created to focus on the power of doing good. This Giving Tuesday, we are raising money to pave health pathways for all those impacted by Spina Bifida. Here’s how you can make a difference this GivingTuesday:

Donate! Every dollar you donate will be matched by our friends at 180 Medical.
When you make a gift to the Spina Bifida Association today, you are not only ensuring a better and brighter future for all those impacted by Spina Bifida. With your help, we are changing the trajectory for families starting at the diagnosis. We are ending the adult care cliff. But, only YOU have the power to pave the health pathways for all those impacted by Spina Bifida. Our work depends on you. Make your tax-deductible donation here.
