Giving Tuesday is November 30!

November 30th is #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving! Our goal is to raise $10,000 by December 21, 2021, to be able to provide 10 children affected by Tourette syndrome with an opportunity to attend Camp Twitch and Shout. We want all children and families who are impacted by a Tourette syndrome diagnosis to have the opportunity to participate in camp and parent workshops, and to be able to connect with others with similar situations for friendship and support. We need your help! Join us today and help us reach our goal!

You can make a contribution directly via our donation page, or start your own Facebook fundraiser to spread the word about Camp, TICS and raise money for the organization!
