Help People with IBD Escape the Stall: Support Crohn's & Colitis Awareness Week 2013
Won’t you help someone you know?
For the nearly 1 in 200 Americans suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), like ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, it can be hard to escape the stall. Debilitating pain and constant disruptions take a physical and emotional toll that can be devastating. That’s why the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America is committed to helping those with IBD cope and to finding a cure. The first 50 people to raise $500 or more through Stay Classy from November 4 through December 31 will receive a CCFA Awareness Week t-shirt!
Start by creating your own personal fundraising page -- click on the "become a fundraiser" button, above.
Tell your story on your new page, and explain why you're helping to find cures.
Last but not least, spread the word: ask your friends and family to donate to your page on your behalf!
We prefer that you use online donations (your personal fundraising page) to fundraise. However, if a donor wishes to donate through cash or a check, please follow these instructions:
To make sure cash and check donations are credited to your fundraising total correctly, please be sure to include these items when you send checks to CCFA:
- Your name
- Your campaign name
- Each individual donor's name, address, and the amount donated (please do not just send a total -- we need to know who gave what specific amount)
Do not send cash – monies collected should be sent in the form of checks made out to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. All checks should be sent to:
