Picture this: You’re walking through your local CVS Health store. Your hips and toes have already started burning. All you want to do is get back into your car to sit, but even that’s a challenge. As you make your way to the pain aisle, you want something — anything — to make it go away. You put a hot and cold compress into your cart. But bending down to lift the Epsom salt is going to be a challenge. Should you ask the stranger shopping next to you for help?
This is the daily reality for 1 in 4 people in the U.S. For the 54 million Americans living with arthritis, a seemingly simple trip to CVS Health to purchase essentials can be overwhelming.
Today is your chance to change that.
Today is #GivingTuesday — a moment where everyday people rally together to improve our communities and our world. Chances are that every charitable cause you care about has asked you for a donation today. The Arthritis Foundation and our partners at CVS Health take this opportunity — and responsibility — seriously. That’s why we’re asking you to think about what matters most in your life this year.
GIVING MEANS MORE: GIVE DOUBLE.
On this global day of giving, join the Arthritis Foundation and CVS Health to give the 54 million Americans living in daily pain the resources, research and recognition they need to shape a better future. CVS Health is generously matching every donation to the Arthritis Foundation on #GivingTuesday, up to $50,000.
#GivingTuesday is about more than giving just money.
It’s about giving kids with arthritis the hope and confidence to keep dreaming big and believing in themselves.
It’s about giving parents the ability to hold and hug their children without experiencing severe pain.
It’s about giving everyone the peace of mind that they’ll never be forced to quit their job or give up their life passions because pain makes it physically impossible.
It’s about sharing a fresh perspective, to better understand how severe arthritis is, how it affects many people and how we can all be supportive.
It’s about giving researchers the opportunity to discover groundbreaking new treatments, and eventually, cures, to conquer arthritis once and for all.
And today, your donation can make twice the impact — giving more people with arthritis a better future.
