Giving Tuesday

Join the Movement!

#GivingTuesday is global fundraising phenomenon. Last year alone, non-profits across the world raised $1.9 billion for charity. An incredible $152,000 went to research for LBSL. This year, we need your help raising even more!

Our goal? Raise $200,000 in one day – November 20, 2021.
This will help keep the LBSL research at the Kennedy Krieger Institute going until at least July, 2022.

On Tuesday, November 30, 2021, Facebook will match donations made on its platform. On top of that, an anonymous donor has come forward pledging to match all donations to A Cure for Ellie up to $100,000! So, donations made on this day could be tripled!

If you or your family member is affected by LBSL and you want to start your own campaign to honor them and raise money for research, here is what you need to do…

1. Go to your personal Facebook page and click “Fundraisers”

2. Choose “Raise Money” and then click “for nonprofit.”

3. Type “A Cure for Ellie” in the space bar.

4. This will set up for your Facebook fundraiser.

5. Create your own message using your loved one’s name and picture or simply use our sample post below.

“This #GivingTuesday I’m raising money to find a cure for my friend ____ who has a rare brain and spinal cord condition called LBSL. It robs people of the ability to walk, then stand, then coordinate all movements. Today only, Facebook will match your donation! No amount is too small. Thanks for considering. #cureLBSL #AwesomeDisease.”
