Giving Tuesday

On #GivingTuesday, support your local poison center and #PayItForward!

Pay It Forward: Give Poison Help.

If you have ever utilized the Poison Help line or poison control services, #payitforward this #GivingTuesday by donating to your local poison center, and helping others who need #PoisonHelp!

Just $2—the cost of a cup of coffee—can provision vital poison control services each year to a family of four.

It takes just $0.43 a year per U.S. resident to fund the nation’s entire poison control system—55 centers staffed 24/7 by experts tirelessly providing free services. But because only a fraction of funding comes from the government, poison control centers need your help. So on #GivingTuesday, if you or a loved one has ever called the Poison Help line, please consider investing the price of a cup or two of coffee and do YOUR part to help sustain this amazingly cost effective service by donating to your local poison center.

Click here to find out how to donate to YOUR local poison center.

Click here to learn more about #GivingTuesday- a global day of giving.

*Funds donated to poison centers on #GivingTuesday will be used to support their general operations and overhead costs.
