Ignite the Passion Behind Your "Give"

Posted by Kim McVeigh, MBA, OTR/L, CHT, FACHE 11/27/2023

As we are coming back to work and normal daily activities from the Thanksgiving holiday where we celebrate gratitude and express our thanks for our friends and families, let’s also celebrate and give thanks to our hand and upper extremity therapy specialty through Giving Tuesday.

GivingTuesday is a global movement launched in 2012 to give back and do good for others. We have an opportunity to reflect on how we can transform our passion and talents for hand and upper extremity therapy into opportunities to do good for the professional community.

ASHT is dedicated to advancing the field of hand and upper extremity therapy by promoting education, advocacy, research and clinical standards. Giving to an ASHT restricted fund highlighted below can help you ignite the passion behind your “give.” All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law; consult your tax advisor regarding specific questions about your deductions. 

Your gift supports the growth of ASHT's evidence-informed programming and learning opportunities to help meet the demands of clinical practice.
