#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. The Foundation proudly joins the giving movement every year to fund our programs in research, education, and public awareness.
On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, due to the recent natural disasters of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria as well as the wild fires in California, the Foundation leveraged its 2017 #GivingTuesday campaign to raise funds for the Membership Assistance Program (MAP). We raised $1,770 towards this program which supports those experiencing financial hardship to remain engaged with the American Academy of Audiology and attend AAA 2018, the Academy's annual conference and exposition. AAA 2018 will be held at the Music City center in Nashville, TN on April 18-21, 2018.
