On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, The National Scoliosis Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Last year, more than 30,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate in this philanthropic campaign.
We invite you to join the movement through your donation to support our mission which was born in 1976 out of a labor of love and assistance for Atlabachew Tedla, an Ethiopian teenager with a severe 145 ° spinal curve.
In 2016, we celebrate our 40th Anniversary of compassionate service to help people in need, and our dedicated awareness/screening/advocacy campaigns for preventive measures to minimize the impact scoliosis may have in their life.
We have accomplished much; however, we cannot rest until all children, regardless of race, creed, residence and/or socioeconomic condition, have access to early detection, diagnosis, and optimal treatment. Your donation on this#GivingTuesday will make a positive difference in someone’s life.
