Did you hear? The FSH Society has been awarded a grant by Staples Foundation. We plan to use the donation to support public awareness and youth education about FSHD, such as a social media awareness raising scholarship competition administered by the Jain Foundation.
Eligible students can compete this spring for the scholarship by posting a fact and image about FSHD. If you know a student who would be interested in this competition, please spread the word about this opportunity. For more information on how to submit, visit: http://www.jain-foundation.org/scholarship/social-media.
The Staples Foundation is the private charitable arm of Staples, Inc., through a program called 2 Million & Change that allows Staples associates around the globe to direct donations in the total amount of about $2 million each year.
The Jain Foundation is a non-profit foundation whose mission is to cure muscular dystrophies caused by dysferlin protein deficiency, which includes the clinical presentations Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2B (LGMD2B) and Miyoshi muscular dystrophy 1 (MMD1). The FSH Society is partnering with the Jain Foundation to share knowledge and raise awareness about lesser known muscular dystrophies.
