PARKIN-SONG - 08/17 to 08/21 - Facebook Fundraiser
Hi! My name is Kasey and I am 11 years old.
I am organizing this charity event benefiting The Parkinson Foundation. It is an organization that helps people that, unfortunately, have this terrible disease. My dad is a neurologist, and due to our current situation, I got to be closer to him and got the opportunity to learn more about this disease. I saw some of his patients and the cases he had to deal with, and it really touched my heart. I saw how terrible and painful the life of his patients is, and it is painful not only for them but, for all their families. Most of them cannot even grab a simple spoon and feed themselves… I got even more heartbroken when my dad told me this disease has not cure yet. However, he told me it can be treated, so some patients can increase their quality of life.
He told me about this foundation, which makes lives better for people with Parkinson by improving care and researching towards a cure. After I hear about this, I wanted to help, but I was not sure how. Then a great idea came to my mind. I love music! So, I thought about offering my music and organize an online charity event. Not only that, but I decided to invite some friends, that also love music, to join me on this wonderful cause.
So here we are. We are giving you 5 days of full music from August 17th, 2020 to August 21st, 2020 by Facebook. I’ll be posting videos during these 5 days that I really hope you enjoy and motivate you to make a donation.
Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the Parkinson's Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
Your gift will help the Parkinson Foundation to fund better research, better treatment, and better lives.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson Foundation.
I hope you enjoy our PARKIN-SONG! LET’S SHOW THE POWER OF MUSIC!
