Need to get rid of that old, unwanted vehicle? Kidney Car may be the answer. "Donating my car was a positive experience. I'm happy to know my much-loved Civic which I drove over 20 years could benefit The Kidney Foundation of Canada. I had an excellent experience dealing with Nicklin Auto Parts. The person I dealt with over the phone and the driver were friendly and efficient. They arranged for my car to be picked up the next day, and the towing process didn't take very long,” said Jean M., verified donor.

For more information or to donate your vehicle, visit kidneycar.ca!

Big shout out to Kathleen in Stoney Creek who organized an amazing Giving Tuesday Kidney Clothes Drive! She spent the day creating awareness about kidney disease and organ donation and inspiring generosity in so many. We thank you for all your efforts and dedication. 👏

is officially here! There is no better time to show your generosity and provide hope! Your contribution helps support research projects such as Dr. Rémi Goupil’s, who has an idea for a new and revolutionary medical technology.

Did you know that the standard blood pressure machine may not be as precise at measuring your blood pressure if you have kidney disease?

Dr. Goupil devotes his research to building a technology that will measure blood pressure levels more accurately in people with kidney disease.

This is important because better readings mean better management of heart and kidney disease, earlier detection, and prevention of disease progression.

Make a generous gift to help support innovative research and change lives for the better. Give today: bit.ly/GivingTuesday-23-F4

Krystian Krzysko was at work when he first felt sick due to his failing kidneys. His emergency room visit left him with terrible news: he was in stage five kidney disease due to high blood pressure.

Just a few months ago, Krystian received a life-saving kidney transplant that returned some normalcy back into his life.

Krystian hopes that anyone affected by this disease finds as much success in their journey as he did. For this reason, he continues to support The Foundation and shares its helpful resources with people who need them. Join his efforts by making a gift today: bit.ly/GivingTuesday-23-F3
