Brown Bag For A Cure

THE STORY:

Juvenile Myositis is a life-threatening and incurable disease affecting 17,000 children and adults in the U.S. alone.  Juvenile Myositis (JM) causes the body's own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk, disfigurement, and even death. JM can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.  

And there is no cure…YET.

On Sept. 12, we’re hosting a virtual Brown Bag for a CURE event. What does this mean? If you typically grab a quick breakfast on the go or lunch out, we’re asking that you consider bringing it from home and instead donating the money you would have spent to our cause. That’s it. One fabulous day of generous souls dining on a pop tart or yesterday’s meatloaf instead of their usual:

Grande Caffe Latte - $3.65 – and a Starbucks Blueberry Muffin - $2.25

OR

Chipotle Chicken Burrito - $6.25 – and a regular soda - $1.60

The minimum donation on the site is $10, so you’ll need to do a little creative rounding like adding sales tax, cost of gas, your time, etc., but we’re confident that the cost would be comparable to a lunch out.

One quick thing you NEED to know if you’ve already decided to donate:

When you’re making your donation you’ll see an Optional Processing Fee when you’re confirming your payment. That money doesn’t go to Cure JM and it's completely optional.

Now, invite everyone you know. Seriously, the more the merrier! In fact, if you work in an office or with a team please get them involved too! Maybe an office potluck is more your style and we’re good with that too! Collect donations and make one much appreciated combined donation from your whole team, department or company! We guarantee that JM families everywhere will be cheering you on and over the moon with your generosity.
