We've been mainly focusing on the OI Foundation and the work they do throughout this entire blogathon. But now I'd like to take a chance and ask you to submit other OI related charities. Here are two that I've found:
The Miracle Michael Fund - The Miracle Michael Fund golf outing is held annually in memory of Michael John Shultz. “Miracle Michael” was born with severe OI and bravely battled complications from this disorder throughout his eight months of life. Despite more than 100 fractures, Michael’s smile stands as a symbol of how powerful the human spirit can be, despite the obstacles we are facing.
The Tiny Bones Fund - A tax-deductible donation to the Tiny Bones Fund can be made in two different ways. You can mail checks or money orders payable to: University of Nebraska Foundation to 8712 W Dodge Road, Suite 100, Omaha, NE, USA 68114.
Please include a note stating that your donation is for the Tiny Bones Fund. Or you can call 402-595-2302 to make a credit card donation (7:30am to 5pm CST). Funds will be used to cover costs of transportation, treatments and surgeries, research and teaching.
Any others? Please submit your favorite OI related charity or benefit in the comments below.
