The Big Ask, The Big Give Workshops


The kidney transplant waiting list is getting longer and people are waiting for a chance at a better life.  In response, the National Kidney Foundation has developed “THE BIG ASK: THE BIG GIVE.” This initiative features free, interactive workshops that educate and raise awareness about kidney donation and transplantation. 

The Big Ask, The Big Give: First Steps to Transplant:  This 2-hour workshop provides information on the basics of kidney disease, treatment options including dialysis and transplantation, and the transplant evaluation process.  It features a panel of renal professionals, transplant recipients, and living donors. 

The Big Ask, The Big Give: Finding a Living Donor:  This 4-hour workshop provides education on living donor transplants, dispels myths, teaches participants how to tell their personal story, and the importance of engaging one’s social network in the search for a living kidney donor.  It features a panel of renal professionals, living donor recipients, and living donors.
