The ISDE was pleasantly surprised to be the recipient of a Facebook Fundraiser initiated by Shania Singleton in the USA earlier this year.
Shania chose the society because the ISDE mission meant a lot to her and 100% of the proceeds will be put into the ISDE Reserve Fund.
Patients, friends and families can be great ambassadors for our profession and are happy to show this in a number of ways including fundraising. Facebook fundraisers are easy to setup and individuals can select a non-profit organization like ISDE to receive donations directly.
Next time a patient or someone they know asks you what they can do to raise awareness and support, we hope you will consider telling them about this.
