#GivingTuesday: A Global Giving Movement | November 28, 2017

by | Nov 18, 2017

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

When you give to ALS Texas, you make a real impact in the lives of people with ALS. Your financial support funds essential ALS research, programs, and resources all year long. See how your donation makes a difference:


$25 gives a patient a voice

$25 is worth the world to someone with ALS who is struggling to communicate with loved ones. Just $25 provides a patient with an LCD writing tablet.


$100 provides in-home consultations with care services staff

Your $100 allows our care services staff to meet with families to help them develop a roadmap for managing ALS, connect them to resources in the community, and discuss current and future care needs.


$250 provides mobility and independence to a patient

$250 provides a manual wheelchair to a person with ALS, allowing them to be mobile and to continue to participate in activities they enjoy.


$500 provides financial assistance to a patient and family

Aside from the effects of ALS on a patient’s health, many lives are shattered financially by the cost of living with ALS. Your gift provides financial assistance via our General Grant Program to help with ALS-related expenses.


$1,500 gives a patient access to ALS-specific clinical care

Multidisciplinary clinics offer the opportunity to participate in clinical trials and provide quality, ALS-specific care to patients.
