Giving Tuesday


Today is #GivingTuesday, an international day of generosity that empowers individuals to make donations following the shopping frenzies of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year, nonprofit organizations collected more than $116 million from donors around the globe!

One of the most popular components of Giving Tuesday is the #unselfie, a picture people take – not of themselves – but of a message of giving. Usually, the person is in the picture, but they hold up a sign that covers their face. In honor of Cavatica’s launch, our #unselfie picture this year is this:



You can share the .jpg image on social media, and there is a .pdf at the “moonshot-print” link if you want to print it out. Please invite your friends to share their #Unselfie for Dragon Master Foundation to help us find cancer cures and empower medical research through Cavatica, the open access data sharing and research platform. Driven by a network of top hospitals, Cavatica was just recognized in Vice President Biden’s Cancer Moonshot Fact Sheet and is poised to change the way medical research is done. Your donations will speed the development of what is basically an information superhighway for cancer researchers.

You can donate here via Crowdrise, which will earn you Crowdrise points that can be exchanged for cool t-shirts and gear. It will also give you a brick in the Crowdrise Giving Tower that they are building today to help visualize the giving on #GivingTuesday.

    1. Hi Heather, I totally missed this comment until just now. The moonshot is a reference to how President Kennedy got the whole nation to focus on sending a man to the moon – what many thought was an impossible task. By bringing great minds together, they got us there, and that is what we are trying to do with cancer research. We want our brightest minds to work together to bring about real change for cancer research. 🙂
