Our sorority’s Lupus philanthropy week is coming around the corner and we cordially invite you to come out and enjoy what we have planned for you!
First of all, what is Lupus?
It is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints, blood, and kidneys. It is most commonly found in minority women. As of now, there is NO cure for lupus. The purpose of our philanthropy week is to raise as much money as we can to organizations that will hopefully lead us to a cure.
Traditionally, the butterfly represents freedom, transformation and recovery. Also, one of the more common symptoms of Lupus is called a “butterfly rash.” It is a red rash across the nose and cheeks that resembles a butterfly. That’s why the butterfly has become the symbol of hope for Lupus patients and it’s ALSO why we named our week “The Butterfly Effect” because our goal is to not only raise money in support of Lupus research, but also raise awareness on the effects that Lupus has on its victims.
ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO OMRF (Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation) and LFA (Lupus Foundation of America) in finding a cure for Lupus.
