Beat the Busy Holiday Season and Donate Early
Schedule Your Donation NOW
Tuesday, December 6th, 2016 is Colorado Gives Day. It’s more than just a day. It’s a movement that inspires and unites thousands of donors to support their favorite causes online through ColoradoGives.org. On this one day, your donation is worth more than on any other day of the year thanks to the $1 Million Incentive Fund provided by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. Depending on the total amount the RMRA receives, we qualify for the additional amount from the Incentive Fund.
Last year, we set the ambitious goal of raising $2,000 and we did it! This year we are setting the bar even higher: $4,000!
Get ahead of the hectic holiday time and schedule your Colorado Give Day donation now by clicking below. Your donations will process on December 6th, 2016.
Top three reasons why you should give to the RMRA
#1: To keep the Rett Clinic at the Children’s Hospital available to all patients throughout the area. In a very unique setting, the Rett Clinic offers an integrated program of consultation and treatment in one convenient place with up to 15 top notch Rett specialists. Imagine the time commitment and the hassle of driving to different doctor offices with disabled children and you will understand how important this clinic is to Rett families. More than 1,200 children live in the Rocky Mountain region with Rett Syndrome and we can serve less than 100 now.
Let’s keep the Rett Clinic open for the future and offer it to more kids!
#2: To increase awareness for this debilitating disease so that more funds are raised. Most people have never heard of Rett Syndrome until it rules their world. Yes, Rett Syndrome is a rare disease, but it is devastating to so many families and it doesn’t receive the amount of private and public research funding like other, even lesser occurring diseases.
Spread the word and let’s raise awareness together!
#3: To support research for a cure. Studies in the lab are very promising and researchers succeeded in reversing this disease in mice. It might be the first curable brain disorder and will have implications on other neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer, Parkinson and Autism!
Scientists are very confident, so let’s give them the funds needed!
The Rocky Mountain Rett Association seeks a cure for Rett Syndrome. Until a cure for this disease is found, we envision a region where children with Rett Syndrome and their families have access to the resources, care and support they need, where the public is aware of, engaged and active in addressing this debilitating disease, and where improved treatments are found to help our girls live a little easier.
We are all fighting for a cure. Together, we are stronger!
