On #GivingTuesday, Let’s Fight Skin Cancer Together!

By Victoria Kopec • November 28, 2023


Join the #GivingTuesday movement and give – whether it’s a donation or the power of your voice – to support the fight against skin cancer.

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is #GivingTuesday. Each year, this global generosity movement reminds us that when we team up, we can make a profound difference. All around the world, the #GivingTuesday spirit of unity inspires hundreds of millions of people to do good. It’s a beautiful thing!

Get Your Give On 

Giving Tuesday is the perfect day to team up to fight skin cancer. With more than 5 million cases diagnosed in the United States each year, skin cancer is America’s most common cancer. Yet, most people do not understand the seriousness of skin cancer and the risks associated with exposure to the sun’s rays.  Together, we can change that.
