Giving Shoesday is Back!

Join NBDF in celebrating Giving Tuesday! Our strong community, our commitment to research, and our active advocacy program all contribute to the strength of our community. We tie together resources for our families and people diagnosed with inheritable blood disorders. Donate today to support the NBDF community!

Now through November 28th, a gift of any size will make this #GivingTuesday meaningful to community members who rely on NBDF for support, research, education, and advocacy. To celebrate our community, anyone that makes a Giving Tuesday gift will receive a special NBDF gift.

This year, we are excited to bring back Giving Shoesday. Donate $70 or more and receive NEW special edition Converse sneakers or donate $150 for a pair of custom Nike sneakers. After making your donation, we will follow up within 24 hours with the order form to receive your custom pair of shoes. Please note that the shoes are not anticipated to ship before the end of the year. Please expect 6-8 weeks for Nike and 12+ weeks for Converse. Shoes can only be shipped within the United States.

Check out the shoe designs:

Giving Shoesday


A “Step into the Future” raises awareness and support of the inheritable blood and bleeding disorders community through the medium of shoes. Through this program, made possible by Takeda Pharmaceuticals, NBDF hopes to utilize the platform of shoes to create a deeper dialogue about inheritable blood disorders, the importance of this community, what strides we have made, and the challenges those living with inheritable blood disorders face daily. We hope these shoes inspire others to “Step into the Future” and join us on this journey.

Thank you for being a champion for the inheritable blood disorders community. We can’t wait to see you sporting your #NBDFshoes. NBDF would like to thank Takeda for their generosity sponsoring this initiative.
