Give to christmas cards campaign
The season of gift giving is rapidly approaching, and with it the fresh and invigorating breath of winter.
In times such as these, ripe with celebration, family reunions and the expression of best wishes for health and well-being, the Quebec Lung Association urges you to give to those who are less inclined to celebrate because of a respiratory illness.
Lung cancer, emphysema, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, sleep apnea – they steal lives from us. Your support of the Québec Lung Association is critical in pursuing the research, treatment, and prevention that promise to save lives from respiratory illness.
I can’t think of anything more precious to someone battling lung disease than more time. That’s the power of your donations.
That is why, I am excited to announce that a long-time supporter of the Québec Lung Association has made a pledge to match your donations towards this holiday campaign.
It’s a remarkable opportunity that will help accelerate our push towards the prevention, causes, and groundbreaking treatments of respiratory illness.
What that means is that every single dollar you donate to the Québec Lung Association between now and October 6, 2023 will be tripled!
One out of every 3 people develops asthma, emphysema and chronic bronchitis (COPD) or lung cancer. It’s on behalf of that one person that I’m asking you to give today. We need your help to fund the research and relief efforts designed to help those who are ill.
The deadline for the Matching Gift Campaign is fast approaching! I don’t want to leave a single dollar behind – especially when so many of our loved ones, and our friends and neighbours are looking for hope.
Did you know that some 3,000,000 persons in Québec are affected by a pulmonary disease, and lung disease claims one life every 8 minutes. Emphysema (COPD) claims one life every hour. The Québec and Atlantic provinces share the highest emphysema related mortality rate.
Breathing is such a simple thing. And yet, we know so many neighbors, friends, co-workers, and loved-ones who find it nearly impossible. Thanks to a simple donation to our Matching Gift campaign, you can make triple the difference in their lives. You can help them breathe.
