Great Canadian Giving Challenge 2020
Sjögren's Society of Canada/Societe de Sjogrens du Canada
Sjögren’s Society of Canada - We are here to help!
During the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, the SjSC has been supporting and advocating for people with Sjögren’s across Canada. We provided the most up-to-date information regarding precautions, underlying conditions and potential complications for Sjögren’s patients. We sent letters to Health Canada and collaborated with other patient organizations regarding the potential shortage of hydroxychloroquine/Plaquenil to plea for priority access to a medication that many Sjögren’s patients rely on. We will continue to advocate for SjSC members and keep them up-to-date throughout the pandemic. We understand the difficulties that our members are experiencing; we are here to help and we are always just a phone call or an e-mail away. Also check out our website for more information about Sjögren’s at www.sjogrenscanada.org.
Now we need your help!
We are in urgent need of financial donations at this time and hope you will consider supporting us during the Great Canadian Giving Challenge taking place from June 1 to 30th. Our goal is $5,000. Every dollar that is donated is a ballot into a draw for us to win the $20,000 grand prize. Your donations and the winning prize will help us to carry out our major awareness project to update our “What is Sjögren’s” brochure and send it to all Sjögren’s specialists across the country. The funds will also be used to continue our advocacy, support and educational programs during the pandemic and throughout the year.
