The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research raised $1 million on #GivingTuesday – 28 November – as part of their #1Day1million fundraising campaign.

The charity had pledged to match-fund any donation up to the one million dollar mark, with 89 cents from every dollar spent at The Foundation going directly to research programmes.

In a statement, the organisation said: “We did it: thanks to your support and energy, we met our Giving Tuesday goal of raising $1 million in one day, to help speed a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

“Thousands of friends and followers shared their dedication to fuelling Parkinson’s research, championed our mission online, and most critically, donated. It was incredible to see the outpouring of support for the Parkinson’s community, demonstrating how together, we can – and we will – cure Parkinson’s disease.”
