‘Tis the season for gift giving! While the 2020 holiday season might not be what you imagined, consider gifts from the American Lung Association that are fun, unique and bring holiday cheer. Holiday shopping can be stressful, especially in the era of COVID-19, but we hope that our gift ideas can ease a bit of the burden.
For those looking for a new take on holiday giving this unprecedented season, here are six gift-giving ideas that support lung health and efforts to end COVID-19 and future respiratory viruses through the American Lung Association’s COVID-19 Action Initiative:
Buy 2, Give 2 Masks.
Wearing a mask is a powerful way to show you care about protecting the health of those around you – a perfect heartwarming holiday sentiment. Washable, reusable multi-ply masks in “American Lung Association blue” are available through the organization’s COVID-19 Action Initiative, and when you buy two masks from the American Lung Association, two masks will be given to someone in need.
Our mission hits close to home with firefighters because of their increased susceptibility to lung disease, including lung cancer due to exposure of gases, chemicals and smoke in the line of duty. Celebrate our most dedicated supporters and their participation in our Fight For Air Climbs with a purchase of a 2021 American Lung Association Firefighter Calendar.
Lung Cancer Courage Kits.
Gift a newly diagnosed lung cancer patient with a Lung Cancer Courage Kit. Each kit includes a bag filled with several items (like a blanket, coloring book and even a mask) and educational materials. Each item has been carefully selected to provide some comfort, help with treatment decisions and assist in communicating with their healthcare team.
Giving has never been easier! When you shop for deals at Smile.Amazon.com, choose the American Lung Association and AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the Lung Association.
LUNG FORCE Store.
LUNG FORCE, led by the American Lung Association, unites women to stand together against lung cancer and for lung health. Visit the official LUNG FORCE store and support LUNG FORCE with the purchase of official LUNG FORCE clothing and accessories for your loved ones.
Vehicle Donation Program.
Put your old car to good use by donating a vehicle to the American Lung Association. When you participate in the Vehicle Donation Program, you're helping sustain our mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. The process is quick, easy, and tax-deductible!
No matter which gift you choose, remember to stay safe and protect yourself and your loved ones during this holiday season.
