TheCraftyRascal donates to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Second Year in a Row

TheCraftyRascal is hard at work making Heavy Seas cufflinks to be given as rewards for donors that give over $1000 to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation at the Brewers Ball this year on March 7th 2015. Last year TheCraftyRascal donated twenty pairs of cufflinks to be awarded to patrons that donate  one thousand dollars or more. The cufflink gift were such a caveated gift that the foundation raised $26,000 instead and TheCraftyRascal made more cufflink sets for the patrons. This year TheCraftyRascal was asked to donate 30 sets of cufflinks. Feels great to help get $30,000 in donations for the second year in a row working with this worthy foundation. I hope that 30 pairs is not enough and that I will be asked to make more.

WHY:    Imagine struggling for every breath you take – something most people don’t have to think twice  about. For most, breathing is a voluntary act, the simple process of inhaling and exhaling to produce  oxygen in the brain. For those with cystic fibrosis (CF), this simple act is a daily battle. 

The CF Foundation is the world’s leader in the  search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. We take great  pride in being one of the most efficient and effective organizations of our kind, and are careful stewards of  every dollar raised in support of our mission. Through  our venture philanthropy model, we are able to invest in promising CF research to develop a robust pipeline of  potential therapies that target the disease from every angle. 

The most recent example of the success of the CF  Foundation’s model is Kalydeco, the first drug to treat the  genetic defect causing CF. While Kalydeco is a breakthrough in  CF research and development, this drug works for only 4% of our CF population. Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives  of young people with CF are still cut far too short. We  urgently need the public’s continued support to fulfill our mission and help extend the lives of those with the disease. 

Our work is not yet done. Help us to assure that all people with CF live a long and healthy life.
