Grassroots Fundraising Campaign
It's a great time to volunteer and make a difference! With more than 50 million Americans suffering from Autoimmune Disease, many are depending on your efforts. AARDA has introduced a Grassroots Fundraising Campaign designed to put the power of fundraising back into your hands. Whatever your interest or hobby, turn it into research dollars.

Here are a few suggestions on how you can get involved.

Janet DeAustria and Kristina Bachelor, Scio, Oregon
AARDA was honored to be the beneficiary of a fundraiser headed by volunteers Janet DeAustria and Kristina Bachelor of Scio, Oregon. Five historic covered bridges scattered along 41 miles across Scio, Oregon was the backdrop for this phenomenal fundraiser.
For less than $30 dollars, participants were treated to a beautiful scenic tour of some of the most beautiful covered bridges in the country. The group had photo opportunities and a lovely lunch under the sun. The proceeds donated to AARDA amounted to $2,500!
This is simply one example of what can be accomplished with a bit of creativity, organization, and a desire to make a difference. More than 90% of this donation will go directly to research, education, and advocacy to advance our shared goal of eradicating autoimmune diseases!
