Is setting up a fundraiser intimidating, confusing, or to time consuming?

Well, now you don’t have to set up anything to help us fundraise.  All you need to do is copy, paste and send.  That’s right.  Copy, paste, and send.  Further down in this blog post you will see five prewritten asks.  All you need to do is pick the one that fits you best, paste it into your email and social pages, (customize it a tad if you want), and send. Keep reading to see why your help is so important and for a few more details about this super easy fundraiser.

We need at least 100 MSA families that have not yet raised money to Copy, Paste, and Send to their contacts

If Multiple System Atrophy has impacted you or a loved one, we need you as a fundraiser.  We simply can’t hit our goals of finding treatments and a cure without every MSA family chipping in. MSA is too rare to expect anybody but our own community and network to care.

Plus, today only, we still have $150,000 in matching gift pledges to earn.  That’s right, every dollar your network donates will be matched dollar-for-dollar. We can’t let that money go unclaimed.  So, please help!

You and YOUR NETWORK can make a big difference!!

So, we have made it super easy to fundraise.  You don’t even need to set up your own fundraising page. You can use the MSA Coalition’s Group fundraiser page!

All you need to do is copy and paste the page link into a group email and into a Facebook post along with our prewritten asks.

Here they are:

1) For MSA Patients:

Dear family and friends

As you may know, I am battling a rare disease called Multiple System Atrophy.  Very few people have heard of it, so research to find treatments and a cure is terribly underfunded.  Therefore, it is up to patients like me to create awareness and to fundraise.

This Holiday season, I would very much appreciate a donation on my behalf to the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition.  The MSA Coalition is a 501c3 dedicated to finding a cure and right now your tax-deductible donation to the link below will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous matching pledge.
