A few weeks ago, Amber shared her story of not being able to afford a pair of gloves due to the financial challenges of living with RA. A very kind-hearted benefactor immediately contacted us, and sent Amber a warm pair of alpaca gloves!
This past weekend, Alison offered to send a pair of gloves to someone who was facing numerous challenges this winter season. We contacted the lucky recipient this morning, to let her know that a pair of gloves was on its way!
Throughout the course of this year’s Festival of Gloves, we’ve heard numerous stories of strength and inspiration.
We’ve also had our hearts touched by messages from people who have lost their health insurance, from people who are facing serious medical procedures this holiday season, from people who were just recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, and from people who have to put in the extra effort that is required to get to school or work on a cold winter morning.
On behalf of everyone who supports the RA Guy Foundation—either by making a donation, or by taking part in the Festival of Gloves, or by sharing the work we do—we are happy to announce that the RA Guy Foundation will be giving away an additional ten pairs of gloves to people living with RA.
Because we can all use an extra touch of warmth, and of color. And because we all have the ability to support, inspire, and encourage one another.
THANK YOU, for helping us help others!
The RA Guy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that aims to surround the person affected by rheumatoid arthritis with vibrant, life-changing connection so they can learn to truly LIVE with the illness. Learn more at www.raguyfoundation.org.
