FUNDRAISING GOAL : $5000

Did you know?

 

Gastrointestinal (GI) and liver conditions affect approximately two thirds of Canadians of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, in urban and rural communities across the country. There are as many as 6 million Canadians with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), close to 10 million who experience substantial upper GI issues, such as GERD and functional dyspepsia, and a further 233,000 Canadians who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) (Crohn's and ulcerative colitis), giving this country the highest reported IBD prevalence in the world! With stigma around discussing GI issues, many suffer in silence, sometimes for years, without seeking medical attention. For some of these individuals, contact with the GI Society is their first step toward receiving validation, information, and further resources to pursue the care they require.

 

When you fundraise for the GI Society, you are supporting:

 

  • Free BadGut® lectures; These free national public lectures explain specific digestive conditions for the patients, caregivers, and other interested individuals who attend in communities across the country.
  • Free BadGut® Basics information pamphlets that explain an array of complex gastrointestinal conditions in lay terms, while answering frequently asked questions.
  • The Inside Tract® newsletter; Canada's quarterly gastrointestinal disease and disorder publication, contains current information on GI research, medications, Health Canada warnings, and explanations of disease processes.
  • Further resources, support groups, and community outreach, including public awareness campaigns that focus on empowering, encouraging, and educating persons living with GI illness.

 

You can help us reach our goal in three different ways:

  1. Cash in your Closet - start by clicking the Sell & Support button - by designating your contribution to the GI Society, you'll get a tax receipt (for amounts $10+) after Trend Trunk transfers the funds you generate.
  2. Purchase items supporting our cause - view these items by clicking the Shop & Raise Funds button.
  3. Raise awareness for our cause by clicking the Share and/or Tweet button.
OUR MISSION

As the Canadian leader in providing trusted, evidence-based information on all areas of the gastrointestinal tract, the GI Society is committed to improving the lives of persons with GI and liver conditions, supporting research, advocating for appropriate patient access to health care, and promoting gastrointestinal and liver health.
