THEN THIS IS THE GIVING OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU!
What is it? We have the opportunity to get a matching $25,000 IF we raise $25,000 by 12/31/14. This means your donation is DOUBLED! As of 12/26/14 we have about $17,000 of it pledged/raised, mostly offline.
What will the $50,000 fund? The 3rd phase of the Mouse Model of AHC at Duke (Ph. 1 = creating the mice (DONE) Ph. 2 =validating symptoms of AHC in mice match humans (ONGOING)Â SEE RESEARCH UPDATE!! Ph. 3 = confirming molecular dysfunction of ATP1A3 in mice matches humans (THE NEED). Data from this starter project may qualify the project for major grants from other sources totaling $500,000 + (20X YOUR DONATION)
What if you donâ€™t raise the $25,000? We will have to raise the whole $50,000 ourselves. The Duke project will likely not start until we can. The delay in the start of the project could mean the window of opportunity to get the $500,000+ could CLOSE BEFORE THE DATA IS GENERATED!
WE CANâ€™T LET THAT HAPPEN!
How do I contribute?Â Easy! Pick a gift you were going to give someone. Donate the value of the gift (or more) to Cure AHC (see below). Select if you want the swag for the amount you are donating, if applicable.
What is this Trip to Mexico? Someone who donates (or receives a gift in their honor) will win a trip to Hacienda Tres Rios in Playa del Carmen Mexico, 1 weekâ€™s accommodations and â€œall inclusiveâ€ paid for2 (airfare and transfers NOT Included) – a $5,200 VALUE!Â check out www.haciendatresrios.com for details.
