December 8, 2020
Lisa French, Executive Director of Development

Sincere thanks to all who participated in Giving Tuesday! This year marked the very first time that IONS launched a robust Giving Tuesday effort and it was a success on many levels! As you may know, IONS decided to provide one free gift every hour on Giving Tuesday. All of our video gifts combined were viewed 625 times in total with the most popular being, The Science of Consciousness. The videos of our Facebook Live events have been viewed a total of 2,472 times to date.
