October is Niemann-Pick Disease Awareness Month!

October is the time to raise awareness about Niemann-Pick Disease!

We need to get the word out about this rare disease to doctors, families, government leaders and the general public.

We invite and encourage each family to look within their family structure, friends and community support networks to create their own team and sponsor an awareness campaign and/or fundraising event during October 2010.

The NNPDF has a wealth of experience and resources to support you in any fundraising/awareness project you’d like to undertake, from a simple “Persevere” wristband sale or a “Family and Friends” letter, up to an all-out gala or golf tournament. Take a look at what other NNPDF families are cooking up for October.

One easy and effective way to support the foundation’s goals of research into treatments and a cure, and to support families affected by Niemann-Pick Disease, is to participate in this October’s Online Auction as a donor and/or a buyer.

It’s a win-win-win situation – the winning bidder gets a great deal on something they like with the added satisfaction of knowing their money is supporting a favorite cause, while the donor has a great feeling knowing their gift will go far to help families affected by NPD. Best of all, the NNPDF is able to use the proceeds to diligently advance our mutual Quest for a Cure!

There are three ways you can help us make this auction a big success: donate an item(s) for auction; bid on auction items; and spread the word to all your family and friends so they can bid, too! (Please visit our Web site for all the details.)

We are busy getting our auction site set up so you can start to “window shop” the items up for sale. Please check the foundation’s Online Auction Web page next week for a link to the auction itself. And we hope to hear from you soon regarding what you might be able to donate for this exciting new fundraising opportunity!

As always, Thank You for your continued support! Together, we can make a difference!
