How You Can Help
Volunteer, donate, spread the word. How you can help stop the clot.
Raising Funds: You can do your part by organizing a fundraising event in your neighborhood! You’ll be part of a group of dedicated individuals and families who have organized fundraisers in their community on our behalf. Be it a 5K run, walk, golf tournament, reception, kickball tournament, auction or anything else, the National Blood Clot Alliance encourages and applauds your involvement. And, we’ll help you get started on your way! Take a look at the toolkits we’ve prepared, helping you plan and promote your own special event. Complete the event application and send it to Judi Elkin. Visit our FirstGiving page and click on the green “start fundraising” button at the top, to start your own event or to support an existing one! You’ll see how easy it is to use this online giving tool to make your event a big success!
Or, another fundraising option for you is our NAThlete program, where you raise funds and awareness through your participation in any race you choose – be it a local 5k road race, a half-marathon, a marathon, or even a triathlon! When you exercise, you’re minimizing your risk of venous blood clots, while maximizing the sporting event by raising funds to fight this silent killer. Commit to help NBCA spread the word about the danger of blood clots in veins. Take about five minutes to set up your own fundraising page where you can share your reasons for supporting the National Blood Clot Alliance and let your family and friends know all about it!
Providing Education: Our Stop The Clot® Forum is an interactive educational program aimed at increasing awareness about the risks of blood clots and clotting disorders. This program is funded through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and provides a venue to share up-to-date information from experts in the field to those whose lives are affected by blood clots and clotting disorders. Through participation in a Stop The Clot® Forum the affected population will be better equipped to make decisions about their health, communicate with their health care providers and cope with living with blood clots and clotting disorders. Our Stop The Clot® Forum toolkit will provide you with all of the information needed to successfully plan and present this valuable educational program. The toolkit contains step-by-step guidelines that take you through the planning process, standardized materials, including brochure, flyer, poster, press releases, attendee materials and core content slides for presentations. Fill out the Stop The Clot® Forum application and send it to Judi Elkin.
