As the season of giving approaches, the Hydrocephalus Association encourages you to give the gift of Hope this holiday by supporting life-saving research and patient education programs for our community. Since the inception of the organization in 1983, we have relied on the generous support of private donors, like you, to fuel our work and to help raise awareness in cities and towns across America.
Thanks to you, we have grown HA WALKs from a local gathering in San Francisco to a national movement of over 10,000 people. It is because of you that HA has become the leader in the fight against hydrocephalus and the largest non-profit funder of research in the nation. And, it is through your determination to see HA’s mission fulfilled, that we have moved to Washington, D.C., minutes away from Capitol Hill and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We truly have so many reasons to be thankful and hope you feel proud of all that we have accomplished together over the past 29 years.
While we have made great strides, we have much more to accomplish and hope that you will continue to support our work by remembering HA in your holiday gift plans. We have outlined a few gift ideas that will be featured each week to help further our mission. Won’t you send your holiday gift today?
A Gift of Hope: Support A Reason for Hope Campaign
For decades since the discovery of the shunt, studying hydrocephalus has not been a particularly popular scientific endeavor. That’s why the Hydrocephalus Association launched our “A Reason for Hope” campaign to raise $3 million by 2013 to research hydrocephalus. The plan seeks to stimulate the research ecosystem, improve outcomes and quality of life, and study the root causes of the disease, with an ultimate goal of finding a cure. In three short and busy years, we’ve already made great progress and have a reason for hope … but we need continued support from members like you in order to maintain our momentum in advancing promising research.
