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!
