Some of the most asked questions we get at PPMD are:
- How can I help?
- How can my friends/family help?
Especially this time of year, our loved ones want to get involved and want to give. We want to make supporting PPMD as easy as possible for you, the person asking your online and offline world, to give and for the donor themselves. So we've come up with a few unique ideas to help you help your friends to make it happen!
Ideas for sharing
- Leave a comment
Visit our Holiday Project page and take a moment to share with us, and your friends, why you gave or why this project is important to you.
- Dedicate a Facebook status or Tweet
We have been talking a lot about a future without Duchenne. What are your hopes for you son's future? What are some of the moments you are looking forward to?
You can dedicate a Facebook status or Tweet to these thoughts, and provide a link to our Holiday Project so that your friends can help make it happen.
- Create your own Holiday Wish
In just a few minutes, you can create your own personalized Holiday Wish page that can be easily shared with your friends, family, and coworkers.
- Thank your friends
Know someone who donated earlier in the year to PPMD on your behalf? Thank them now by sharing this great holiday video of appreciation.
Maybe it will even encourage them to give again!
- Share why you support PPMD
You have a friend or relative who wants to make a donation on behalf of your son, but they want you to tell them where to donate. You tell them PPMD (thanks, by the way!). But they want to know why PPMD?
An easy way to express why you support PPMD is by sharing our 2011 Report Card blog with your friends. Try sharing the link on Facebook or Twitter with a message that simply reads, "This is why I believe in PPMD and why you should too.”
We are so grateful to every dollar we are given. This year's holiday appeal is especially critical because the work Dr. Fallon is doing with biglycan (the project this year's holiday appeal is restricted to) is a promising, potential therapy that would help all patients with Duchenne. Your help in getting people to donate who may not know about the work PPMD is doing, is so appreciated.
At PPMD, we can see a future without Duchenne, and we thank you for helping us make it happen!
Let me know if you have any other suggestions or questions and happy holidays!
