Gifts in the Arthritis Society Gift Catalogue are meaningful gifts that you can give to family, friends and loved ones during the holidays or any gift giving time. When you make a purchase, you will be making a significant impact to those living with the devastating effects of arthritis.
Each donation you make to the Arthritis Society Gift Catalogue supports the item you are purchasing. In the unlikely event that donations exceed the activity’s requirements, the Arthritis Society will redirect funds to similar programs or to where they are needed the most, using its best efforts to adhere as closely as possible to the original intent of the gift.
The Arthritis Society is a national health charity, fueled by donors and volunteers, with a vision to live in a world where people are free from the devastating effects that arthritis has on lives. Begun in 1948 with one very clear goal – to alleviate the suffering of people crippled by arthritis – that same volunteer-led passion carries on today in communities across Canada. Through the trust and support of our donors and sponsors, the Arthritis Society is Canada’s largest charitable source of investments in cutting-edge arthritis research, proactive advocacy and innovative solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
I wish people understood that arthritis is more than just a sore finger - that it can affect the whole body - bones, joints and organs including vision. It can also affect motherhood and grandmotherhood - in fact everyone in my life has been affected by my arthritis.Annette (right), living with rheumatoid arthritis
