Much like CASAA, GivingTuesday is a movement driven by a community of givers. Created in 2012, GivingTuesday is all about harnessing the generosity of people all over the world to boost donations to worthy causes by inspiring massive numbers of people to give. This year, the global push for supporting your favorite non-profits takes place on Tuesday, December 1st. GivingTuesday is based on a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It’s an opportunity to use your individual power of generosity to make a real impact, even in these uncertain and stressful times.
Kindness and generosity are what bring people together!
We hope you’ll join us in participating in GivingTuesday this year by donating to CASAA, as well as any other organizations and causes you care about. In times of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things!
GivingTuesday’s message of hope, connection, and community has never been more needed! 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, including for tobacco harm reduction and the vaping community. States’ responses to COVID-19 have resulted in many vapor businesses closing due to shutdowns in the spring. While some are weathering the storm, burdensome regulations on nicotine products means that many will never reopen. For vapers this means that finding suitable alternatives to smoking is getting more challenging. (What a terrible way to treat people who are just trying to improve their lives.)
These things can make us feel hopeless and may even seem insurmountable. But if there’s only one thing you take away from this message, it should be this: CASAA is not giving up!
The vaping community has faced dire circumstances before, and we’re still here. We’ve seen lawsuits, strict regulations, and rhetoric that all threaten our ability to use reduced-harm products. Yet we’re still standing.
Advocating for products that saved our lives may be more difficult now, but no matter the obstacles, it is always worth it.
The potential for vapor products to save the lives of millions – if not a billion people – is too important to give up on. We may have to adapt to new political realities, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned it’s that together our community is capable of incredible things.
CASAA’s confidence is not only in the potential of safer nicotine products, but also in YOU. YOUR voice, YOUR story, and YOUR generosity are key to educating officials and neighbors alike.
If you believe that vapor products are improving your life, please help us continue this fight into 2021 by donating. Even just $2 a month can make a difference!
