Since inception, The LAM Foundation has dedicated more than $9 million to LAM research and $3 million to patient support and education—over 80% of the $14 million in total revenues raised. Research, patient services and education are the driving forces behind the success of our mission and over 82 cents of every dollar donated to The LAM Foundation goes to advancing our mission to find safe and effective treatments and a CURE for LAM.
Online fundraising is quick, simple and fun. Fundraising from the comfort of your keyboard allows you to conveniently contact your friends, family members, acquaintances, colleagues, and other relationships to support your fundraising efforts for The LAM Foundation. Within minutes you can upload your personal email address book, select an email template, send your email to as many people as you have an email address for and then watch as the donations show up on your page!
Fundraising online has quickly become one of the most popular ways to help raise funds to fight LAM. Please take a look at the online campaigns that are available for you to join and follow the link to sign up for the one that is right for you.
June 1, 2013 marks the third annual Worldwide LAM Awareness Day. Last year The LAM Foundation made a collective effort to focus public attention on the LAM community by asking community members to post a picture wearing a LAM Foundation t-shirt. This year, you can easily join supporters across the country who are raising awareness and funds by taking part in the Worldwide LAM Awareness online fundraising campaign – and you can post your picture (wearing your LAM t-shirt) here too.
Raising funds for the Foundation has never been easier. Simply follow the quick easy steps below and start bringing awareness to LAM.
Clicking on the Worldwide LAM Awareness link (header)
Click on Participant Registration
Click on “join a team” and select your team (your region) or “join as an individual”
Then complete the registration process
You can then email or use social media to promote your page to friends and family. This is a great way to do fundraising, and almost everyone is willing to donate at least a few dollars. It’s easy and it can all add up to big money if we all work together.
Are you holding an event for The LAM Foundation? Participating in a 5k or triathlon and raising funds for The LAM Foundation? Maybe you are conducting a letter writing campaign and need a place to collect donations online or perhaps you just need a personalized place online to direct your family and friends to when they want to make a donation on your behalf. This is the campaign for you! Note: This campaign is open through December 31, 2013.
By giving and asking others to give, you take an active role in changing the lives of women with LAM around the world.
