Giving Tuesday: Thank You for Giving Us the Gift of Research

2017 has been exciting but we certainly couldn’t have done it without you! In the past year, you’ve helped us push towards a healthier, more genetically empowered future for everyone by coming out and donating blood! As a testament to our thanks, we’re dedicating this Giving Tuesday to you.

What is ‘Giving Tuesday’?

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and Cyber Weekend, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season by encouraging people to give (think of it as Black Friday’s charitable counterpart). Whether time, money, or recognition (or blood), it’s a simple idea — find a way to give and then share your idea using the hashtag, #GivingTuesday, to inspire others.

This year we want to give back by thanking you!

From everyone here at Orig3n, we want to thank you, not only for donating your blood in the name of research, but for your time, energy, and passion. We’ve enjoyed meeting each and every one of you and we look forward to exploring the future of regenerative medicine with you. We never could’ve built the world’s largest cell bank without you.

To celebrate Giving Tuesday and all of our Orig3n donors, we’re revisiting our most memorable events of the year (everything from Bay to Breakers to the Boston Marathon and Spartan Races to San Francisco Pride). Scroll on to get in the spirit and then share your story using the hashtag, #myorig3nstory.

Want to share your Orig3n story or a memory from one of our events?
Give back and keep the conversation going by posting your story on social (Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter). Simply craft your post, tag @orig3n_inc, and use the #myorig3nstory hashtag for a chance to be featured on our blog. We’d love to hear from you!
