November has long been a month for giving — celebrating and raising awareness for the dedicated work and causes of non-profit organizations such as Heartland Health Research Alliance.

November 15 is National Philanthropy Day, with its purpose to celebrate “the endless daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.” November 30 is Giving Tuesday, “a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Throughout the month of November, people around the world see #NPDLove and #GivingTuesday peppering their social media feeds, and they witness friends and family sharing their support publicly for their favorite nonprofits.

As a follower of the work of Heartland Health Research Alliance, we hope you will join the global giving monthly movement and show your support for our nonprofit. HHRA is focused on conducting science for safety, in the interest of preventing public harm from rising pesticide exposure. Our current flagship study, The Heartland Study (HS), is tracking 2,000 mother-infant enrollees in cooperation with hospitals in the Midwest to finally get to the root of whether pesticide exposure leads to birth/developmental defects and heritable health problems. We’ve assembled a group of renowned scientists, doctors and researchers to lead our project efforts, and we look to outside donors to support these critical efforts and spark policy change in the interest of public and environmental health.

We’ve been increasingly gaining attention — including a recent front-page op-ed in The Hill by HHRA Science Advisory Board member Dr. Melissa Perry — but we need much more support to fulfill our science, research and outreach needs. You can help by sharing our website and social media channels, raising awareness of HHRA to your friends and family, and donating if you’re able. All monetary donations to HHRA are tax-deductible, and every dollar helps!

We’re so thankful for your interest in our work, and so thankful for your continued support.
