Highlighting The Lupus Foundation of America
So many charities out there and then so many reasons for those charities.
I used to donate every time an acquaintance approached me for financial support of their personal charity. I'd buy the wrapping paper, order the frozen pizzas, support marathons--anything to combat whatever cause. Over the years, and after surprise revelations on TV, I've learned to be more discerning about what I want to support and to perform due diligence to check on the organizations' budgeted portion for overhead and salaries.
One organization, however, that I don't mind highlighting is the Lupus Foundation of America. Last month, May, was Lupus awareness Month.
The organization is devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy.
