MAY IS LUPUS MONTH!!
BUSINESSES BANDING TOGETHER FOR LUPUS!!
… It is that time of year again to rally up supporters to participate and support our month long “Band Together For Lupus” campaign.
Over ten years ago, no one spoke of lupus, there was little awareness and understanding of the signs and symptoms and very little investment in research. Approximately 1.5 million Americans have lupus – men, women and children. Lupus is an acute and chronic (lifelong) autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually every organ system in the body. It is complex, and no two cases of lupus are the same. The money raised helps provide support services, emergency financial assistance, educational programming and funding for research to find better treatment and most importantly, a cure.
This year, it is our goal to raise L$200,000 (lindens) to fight lupus. We are asking the business owners in SL choose a sponsorship package by going to Marketplace and help us meet (and exceed!) that goal, and give people with lupus a brighter tomorrow. 100% of your generous donation will be converted over to US Dollars and then will be donated to the Lupus Foundations of America and the UK. These donations will assist with life-saving research, education and advocacy initiatives to bring an end to lupus.
In recognition for your donation, your business logo will be displayed on all marketing material, posts, website and blogs as well as any advertisement and interviews during the month of May. We also will ask if you will display our “SL Businesses Band Together For Lupus” texture in your store, business, club,etc.
We, the Sorors of Sigma Upsilon Nu SL Sorority thank you in advance for your support.
Together we can take steps to bring hope to millions of individuals affected by lupus!

FACT: Did you know that 5,000 Americans die each year from complications of lupus?
During the month of October we celebrate the woman who have survived, become a statistic of or is suffering through breast cancer. It’s frightening as a woman to even think that in my life time I may be one of those survivors or victim of breast cancer. It’s a real fear for me.
It is another fear that in every 9 seconds in the United States a woman is assaulted or beaten. It is a fact that around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime – most often, the abuser is a member of her own family. Did you know domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined? Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually. What is even…

Your donations, and support allowed us to make a real life donation of $749.00 U.S. Dollars. These funds were donated to the Lupus Foundation of America and Lupus UK, all monies are used to help find new treatments and find a cure and “Solve The Cruel Mystery”.
Whether you attended the lavish Red Door Models exclusive event, or if you went to the beach party, the masquerade ball, the white yacht party, and tipped a purple butterfly. We want you to know that we appreciate you and the light within you shines brightly as it touches the lives of those living with lupus; who will be appreciative of your donations.
A special thank you also to the ladies (sisters) of Tau Beta Tau, who generously supported our events as well as donated the proceeds they raised from their own lupus awareness party to Sigma Upsilon Nu. Greek Unity does exist and when we all work together, we all benefit.
None of this could not be possible without our corporate sponsors. Please support their businesses as they have opened their hearts to “give back” to our global community in the Fight for Lupus. (Check for Slurls below).
We cannot forget to send a huge thank you to all of the DJs who so generously donated their time and talent. Words are not enough to express our gratitude.
Lastly, we could not do what we do without donors such as you. We look forward to working with you in the future. We, and those we serve, deeply appreciate your generosity.
