The Power of Giving
By Linda B. Grandolfo
I believe in the power of giving at any level. When I first started as a volunteer, my capacity for giving was small, yet consistent. As my financial picture changed and my circle of supporters increased, my ability to support the Arthritis Foundation increased.
In honor of my four years as Chicago leadership board chair, I joined the Be the One campaign. More than 54 million people, including nearly 300,000 children, suffer from arthritis-related diseases each and every day. Many suffer alone and silently. I work together with my fellow supporters for a cure. My hope is that someday, with our support, children and adults will not have to live a compromised life due to this disease.
My family and my friends also deal with arthritis. I hope someday they can be free of pain and lead a full life. Being a contributor of Be the One will help the Arthritis Foundation continue to seek better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for arthritis. We must work together with donations and other support in order to change the future of arthritis.
Your support is powerful and helps bring us closer to finding a cure for arthritis. Contact the Arthritis Foundation at 866-528-8687 or [email protected] to learn about the many ways you can support our work into the future.
