Raise Your Hand and Make a Difference

Lundbeck Rare Disease Day SymbolBy raising your hand, you show your support for the 30 million Americans who are affected by rare diseases.  Lundbeck Inc., a Rare Disease Day Partner, announced the launch of a campaign to raise funds for rare disease research in conjunction with Rare Disease Day. 

Lundbeck has created a “Raise Your Hand” symbol that can be posted on websites and, for each click on this icon, Lundbeck will donate $1—up to a total of $10,000—to NORD’s general research fund. The Raise Your Hand campaign is intended to raise awareness of the need for more research on rare diseases, which is a major theme of Rare Disease Day 2010.   

You can support this campaign by posting the symbol, by sharing it with friends…and, of course, by clicking on it!    Please spread the word and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
