It’s ALS Awareness Month, so there’s no better time to take advantage of discounts and deals to raise donations. Plus, this Memorial Day Weekend and throughout June, we’re featuring some great savings from lots of top retailers.
The aim of ALS Awareness Month is to raise awareness about ALS, gather support for those affected by this condition, and to encourage funding for research towards treatment and a cure. This is your chance to show your support while saving a bundle doing it!
Over 30,000 people in the U.S. suffer from ALS. Sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a devastating progressive neurodegenerative disease which destroys the ability to walk, speak, eat and breathe. Currently, there is no known treatment or cure for ALS. If researchers are able to gain a better understanding of and, eventually, a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, this will likely benefit research into related conditions like Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
In support of ALS Awareness Month, and throughout the year, here are brands that you can shop that will make a donation to the ALS charity of your choice when you purchase online.
