Our family is embarking on another fundraising journey.
September 14, 2016
BENEFITING: NATIONAL ALOPECIA AREATA FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: NATIONAL ALOPECIA AREATA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 14, 2016
Those of you who have met Josie, know that something is different about her. She suffers from patchy hair loss; a condition known as alopecia areata. We don't know when her hair is going to fall out. We don't know how much she will lose or if it will grow back. There is no cure. There isn't even a treatment that guarantees regrowth.
Josie suffers in silence but is always quick to tell you she hates alopecia. Her condition is very much undeniable. Unfortunately, most 3rd graders don't understand what she means when she tells them she has alopecia. Most adults I meet don't understand it either. It's time for our family to help the National Alopecia Areata Foundation to get the word out.
Beginning September 14th and running through October 26th, in celebration of Alopecia Areata Awareness Month, NAAF is part of the Revlon Love 2016 Challenge!
This Challenge is a six-week fundraising competition launched by Revlon where organizations that support health causes compete for cash prize donations from Revlon. Over $1.4 Million will be given away in prize money to organizations participating in the Challenge. We're ready to raise as much money as we can!
Through this campaign, we have an opportunity to make a real impact in the lives of all those living with alopecia areata and their loved ones!
Please help us to reach our goal of $5000. Why $5000? Because we just finished a summer long campaign to raise funds for JDRF; the organization that helps Josie's sister, Maggie, live with type 1 diabetes. Help us show Josie that she is just as important as her big sister and that we want to cure both of them!
All the best
