It’s 12.12.12 and there are (at least) 12 ways to support the Lung Association

(December 12, 2012)

To commemorate 12.12.12, we’ve compiled a list of 12 ways you can support the American Lung Association’s fight for healthy lungs and healthy air not just today, but throughout the whole season!  Who knew there were so many ways to give back?

If you donate TODAY 12.12.12, please consider supporting us in one of the two Community Giving Days in which we are participating:  ROC the Day and Valley Gives.  Your support of these events can help make the Lung Association eligible for one of the much larger gifts that the sponsors are awarding to local nonprofits with the most donations.  

No matter what the size of your gift, or in which way you choose to support us, please know that we consider any help you can give a blessing that brings us closer to realizing our vision of living in a world free of lung disease.  Thank you and Happy Holidays!

12 Ways to Support the American Lung Association:

1. Participate in a Community Giving Day with the Lung Association ROC the Day with us in Rochester or support us through Valley Gives in Western Massachusetts.

2.  Be a part of one of our Fight for Air Climbs  or Treks

3.  Make a donation to Christmas Seals® at or purchase a gift of your choosing in our Christmas Seals shop.

8.  Shop the Lung.  Choose from a wide range of merchandise that will let others know you support the Lung Association’s efforts to promote healthy lungs and healthy air.

10.  See if your donation to the Lung Association is eligible for a match from your employer.  Matching gifts can make your donation go twice as far.  Check here.

11.  Lend your voice to our fight for air by signing up to become an e-advocate. When your support is needed on local, state and federal matters affecting air quality and lung health, you’ll be notified and given direction on how you can help.

12. Volunteer. Volunteering doesn’t cost money but volunteers who give of their time and talent are crucial to our ability to fulfill our mission. If you think volunteering may be right for you, click here to learn more about ways you can give back by volunteering at the Lung Association.
