MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C., (Nov. 7, 2018) - This #GivingTuesday, the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) will celebrate giving by joining the #GivingTuesday movement on November 27th to raise awareness and support for everyone affected by a chronic gastrointestinal illness.

"Being a part of the #GivingTuesday movement provides us with the opportunity to share our story of why we began and how we will continue to serve adults and children with chronic GI disorders," said Ceciel T. Rooker, President of IFFGD. "It allows us to share our goals beyond the reach of our immediate community and encourage people to support a cause they can believe in."

There are many ways to join and support IFFGD's #GivingTuesday initiative. Share IFFGD's #GivingTuesday message with your social network, start a fundraiser on Facebook, make a purchase using AmazonSmile, sign up for the eNewsletter, or donate at www.iffgd.org. Ms. Rooker added, "Monetary support is needed for a non-profit to succeed; however, giving is not only about the dollars you contribute. It's also about using your voice to help raise awareness about our mission and the patients, families, and care givers that we support."
