Cypriot Young Professionals Fighting Thalassemia on Giving Tuesday

November 23, 2018

NEW YORK – The Cypriot Young Professionals (CYP) is asking for help this Giving Tuesday, November 27, in the fight against the rare blood disorder thalassemia. CYP has chosen the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, which battles the disorder, as a worthy cause to support on this global day of giving.

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 27 this year) has been designated as Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving fueled by social media, #GivingTuesday. Corporations and individuals are encouraged to support worthy and worthwhile charitable organizations on this day.

Children born with thalassemia (which disproportionately affects people of Cypriot background, as well as those of Greek, Italian, and Asian heritage) require lifelong blood transfusions and daily drug treatments. They also face a host of complications ranging from heart and liver failure to diabetes to osteoporosis (often starting in their teen years). The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation is dedicated to fighting this deadly blood disorder and to helping all those with thalassemia. More information is available online: www.thalassemia.org.

On Giving Tuesday, CYP hopes you will join them in supporting the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation by making a donation to this worthy cause. Donations can be made online any time through November 27 at https://bit.ly/2OgxeIB or by mailing a check to:
