We'd love for some help with a creative Giving Tuesday Campaign (December5th)! Since there are so many nonprofits reaching out for donations, we'd like for someone to think outside the box about a campaign that asks our followers to save their money for our upcoming Gala instead. Our Instagram and Facebook engagement continues to grow daily and we have a ton of resources to help get you started.
NMO is an extremely rare autoimmune disease that impacts all different kinds of people from all over the world. With so much uncertainty, we hope our ability to raise awareness means more patients will detect the disease much earlier and feel truly supported by + connected to a community along their journeys.
The Sumaira Foundation for NMO is dedicated to generating global awareness of neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD), fundraising to find a cure, and creating a community of support for patients + their caregivers.
In 2014, this organization was founded based on the theory that heightened awareness and visibility of NMO will enhance funding to accelerate research to eventually find a cure.
