#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have gathered together to support and champion important causes they believe in and the communities they serve.
This year, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine Foundation (AASM Foundation) encourages members of the AASM and the public to support improving sleep health by participating in #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, November 27, and contributing to our annual campaign.
Our goal is to distribute over $2 million a year annually to support sleep research, but we can’t do it alone. Donations from individuals like you are helping the AASM Foundation expand our research award programs to invest in strategic research projects in areas such as sleep health, circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders, insomnia, hypersomnias, telemedicine and to address the staggering issue of having 23.5 million adults who are undiagnosed and untreated with obstructive sleep apnea in the U.S.
We hope you will join us in celebrating #GivingTuesday by contributing to our 2018 campaign today! Just click here to donate.
Our vision is to create better lives through healthy sleep. With contributions from generous individuals like you, we can increase our funding of sleep research projects to ensure the importance of healthy sleep becomes a priority for everyone.
