Giving Tuesday Campaign
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that focuses on funding the non-profits that make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
Since 2011, 1 of Us, formerly 1 in 9, has provided direct, non-medical financial assistance to 1,600 women battling breast and gynecological cancers. By year’s end, we will have assisted more than 1,800 women right here in North Carolina. Through providing funds for gasoline, groceries, rent, mortgage payments, utilities and more, 1 of Us assists our patients with the expenses of their day-to-day lives so that they can focus on their treatments.
1 of Us relies on individual donors and local businesses to provide every penny raised. 1 of Us was founded in North Carolina and assists patients in treatment at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, Rex Hospital in Raleigh and Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.
