The holidays are a great time to give back to the community. On this #GivingTuesday, MyOstomy encourages you to donate what you can to ostomy charities around Canada that are awareness and funds for ostomates across the country. Here are some great Ostomy charities to donate to this year:
- Ostomy Canada Society: Ostomy Canada’s mission is to provide a support system for ostomates and their circle and help them live life to the fullest and advocate for awareness and collaboration. Visit them at https://www.ostomycanada.ca/
