There are two ways that you can help fund the research project at Texas Children's Hospital and raise awareness of SCAR7 (Atypical TPP1 Deficiency) and other rare disorders. The first is by purchasing a #FightingForMaya T-Shirt and the second is by donating directly to the SCAR7 research project at Texas Children's Hospital. Details are below.
Does your company match your donations to non-profits? If yes, consider purchasing a shirt and making a separate donation to Texas Children's Hospital. Texas Children's is a 501 c3 and most companies will match your donation. If you work for Qualcomm, the gift matching policy is available at this web address https://community.qualcomm.com/docs/DOC-19332.
Once you receive your shirt, we ask that every Friday you show that you are #fightingformaya, by:
-Wearing your shirt
-Taking a Selfie
-Adding the hashtag, #fightingformaya
-and sharing your pic with the world.
Go crazy, be creative and have fun!!!
