Make a tangible difference
You can make a tangible difference for people with FOP on #GivingTuesday, November 27, with a gift to the IFOPA. All donations received for #GivingTuesday will fund the Quality of L.I.F.E. Awards to help individuals with FOP enjoy “Living Independently with Full Equality” on a daily basis.
Your generosity makes it possible for the IFOPA to give a Quality of L.I.F.E. Award to someone like Patrick. He used the award to purchase a power lift recliner to move by himself without help from someone else.
“It enables me to safely and independently get up and sit down by myself, which allows me to be less dependent on other people if I need something,” said Patrick. “With the progressive nature of FOP, all things that enable small victories are important, no matter how small.”
When you make a contribution on #GivingTuesday, your gift will support a grant for items that improve the health, welfare and independence of people with FOP of all ages. Recipients can use the award for mobility aids, vocational training, assistive technology and many other qualifying items. For Julieta, it was a memory foam mattress that allows her to get rest.
“This is incredible for my comfort and gives me time to sleep. It is such a big gift,” said Julieta. “It’s special to have help with different needs for people with FOP.”
Your donation will have a very real impact for individuals like Patrick and Julieta who need practical assistance in their day-to-day lives. Thank you for your support of this important program and all those living with FOP around the world. Please make your #GivingTuesday gift today.
