BENEFITING: Gwendolyn Strong Foundation
Hey guys, so back when I was in high school, I helped a foundation called Andrew's Toy Box by raising toys and handing them out to kids at the hospital. At that moment, I knew that I love helping other people and putting smiles on stranger's faces was my calling. It changed my life so much, that this year I would like to share my passion with you guys. If there is any specific present I want this year, it would be for you guys to help me raise $300 to donate to the GWENDOLYN STRONG FOUNDATION. This is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing global awareness of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Even if it's a small amount of money, that would be fantastic! i hope to reach this goal by my birthdayy! let's make it happen people! :) -Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the #1 genetic killer of young children.
**SMA is the #1 genetic killer of young children. Although born healthy, children with SMA eventually lose the use of all muscles, including the ability to walk, crawl, eat, breathe and even swallow
**1 in every 40 people, or nearly 10 million Americans, UNKNOWINGLY carries the gene responsible for SMA. Few have any known family history.
