About CureSHANK's First
RAISING FOR RESEARCH
Annual FUN-raiser Campaign
We need YOUR help to raise funds for three crucial CureSHANK research projects in 2023*:
(2) Developmental REGRESSION
(3) Measuring SLEEP Dysfunction
To make it fun, we will have a friendly competition the week of May 1-5 to see which project can earn the most donations!
You will RAISE funds for the project of your choice by RAISING up your loved ones with PMS: sharing something positive--a silver lining or a funny moment--and explaining via social media and email why this particular project is important for them.
These projects will help fulfill CureSHANK's mission to bridge the gap between basic SHANK3 science and successful clinical trials!
Please note: the URL for the fundraiser is not yet live but will be soon and is located at
* You can read more about these projects in our sample email language.
Week of May 1 - 5:
Send out emails and texts to friends and family!
Post your customized social media posts on all platforms you use!
Be sure to tag CureSHANK and use a couple of hashtags (but not too many--sometimes that hurts the algorithm!)
