And each takes only a few minutes (and are mostly self-serving). I promise.
1) Go shopping! I’ll be putting my Amazon Prime account to good use this week by specifying Lupus Colorado (under its incorporation name of Lupus Foundation of Colorado) as the beneficiary. In addition to the regular portion of donations, Lupus Colorado will receive an extra $5 for each donation. Learn more.
2) Make room for your Amazon purchases (and have someone ELSE pick up the stuff!). Lupus Colorado depends on your support to help the individuals and families impacted by this lupus. Meet spring with a cleaner house and a do-gooder spirit by donating your unwanted clothes, goods, and household items by calling 303-231-9337. Learn more.
3) Become an armchair advocate. While you’re waiting for your lives on Candy Crush to reset (I’m looking at you, dear husband!), visit http://www.congressweb.com/lri. There you’ll find info on increasing access to medications that already exist and increasing funding for important research. Our executive director is in Washington, D.C., now. Let’s show her that we’ve got her back.
These are just a few simple ideas to get you into support mode. As always, thanks for supporting me and all the people who benefit from the amazing work of Lupus Colorado.
