The Best Gift is an Open Heart

Each year, after the huge sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, comes Giving Tuesday – an international day of giving back.

We’re getting ready to celebrate on Tuesday Dec 3 and are looking for your help!

This year’s goal is to ensure patients in our community have local access to cardiovascular surgery. During cardiac bypass surgery, cardiac surgeons use the surgical instruments on an Open Heart Instrument Tray to help repair the heart.

Your donation this Giving Tuesday will ensure we can fund this life-saving equipment. The total cost of one tray of instruments is $20,000. We’re hoping to raise enough to fund two trays. Every dollar counts!

We hope you will join us on Giving Tuesday to donate to life-saving care here in Thunder Bay. Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 by the generosity of Maurice and Jackie Black.

Give Generously during this 24-hr raise-a-thon!
