Spring/Summer is Fundraising and Awareness Time!
The busy spring and summer fundraising and awareness-raising season is now in full swing! Warmer weather is peak time for outdoor events, festivals, community gatherings, and other opportunities to advance the mission and vision of the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation, on behalf of all affected by NPD.
Check out our Upcoming Events and Recent Events pages for a taste of all the great activities going on around the country in support of Niemann-Pick Disease Research and NNPDF Family Services programs.
As just one example, the photo above shows the motorcycle being taken around to various events in Florida, to be raffled off to raise funds in memory of little Ryan Richardson (NPC).
If you've never done any fundraising, or if it's been a few years since you held an event, now is the time! Check out the postdoctoral fellowship research projects the NNPDF is currently supporting for some motivation, and let us help you get started in your community.
We can provide brochures (ASMD Type A/B brochures or Type C brochures, all updated in 2010), newsletters and (NEW!) posters for your fundraising needs.
The ever-popular periwinkle PERSEVERE wristbands are an easy way to raise funds and awareness. Packaged individually, each wristband contains a message of appreciation for supporting our Quest for a Cure. Wristbands are $1.00 each and can be sold with minimal effort at any event, or at the checkout counters of supportive local businesses.
One of our member families makes colorful, eye-catching vinyl banners to bring attention to your booth or event. And we can help you with ideas, best practices, press releases, or with requests for official proclamations.
Thank You to all the families, extended families and community members who support the important work of the NNPDF! Visit our NewsLine page for more details about the above ideas, and please let us know how we can be of assistance.
