#GivingTuesday on November 28, 2017 is a global day of giving and one of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Welcome to For Kidney’s Sake, Inc.
A Social Service Providing Organization For Chronic Kidney Disease/Dialysis Patients
With obesity, diabetes and many other kidney failure risk factors on the rise, subsequently incidences of Chronic Kidney Disease leading to dialysis is on the rise. As with any illness there are often physical and psychological trauma that patients suffer, and with CKD many suffer from physical cramps, tiredness, isolation and depression.
At For Kidney’s Sake we have taken the initiative to develop programs that combat the issues of isolation, lack of socialization and depression for CKD/dialysis patients. From events to activities and trips, all of our programming is focused towards increased socialization which allow patients to live a longer, better quality lifestyle.
