As readers know from the many inspiring comments and reports from IAHPC Traveling Scholars, scholarships can make a huge difference to someone from a low-income country who is struggling to develop their skills and experiences in palliative care. A traveling scholarship opens eyes and minds and helps the grantee to acquire new skills that can be adapted to their own setting for the benefit of patients and families.
We do all we can to stretch our modest funds but we would love to provide even more grants to more applicants. That's why we are teaming up with Global #GivingTuesday Movement, which pledges to provide additional traveling scholarships for the advancement of palliative care through education in our Improve Quality of Life – Palliative Care Education campaign.
Global#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. The Improve Quality of Life – Palliative Care Education campaign is happening this year on November 28, 2017.
#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These events help to kick off the holiday-giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give something back to the charities and causes they support.

Through its Smile shop, Amazon donates a portion of your purchase to IAHPC at no additional cost to you. When you shop at AmazonSmile you will find the exact same low prices and selection as Amazon.com, and you will be supporting IAHPC in its mission to advance hospice and palliative care globally.
