Buy ” Willie The White Tiger ” And Help Fund Research For Vasculitis
Posted Nov 07 2010 12:00am
I just found out about this great way to help fund research for Vasculitis with the help of Avon and a certain adorable White Tiger named Willie…
Sisters Deana Merryman, who serves on the EAC, and Dione Wetzel are promoting an exciting fundraiser to benefit the Vasulitis Foundation in memory of their father, Franklin “Dean” Merryman.
Dean passed away from complications of Giant cell arteritis in March 2007 at the age of 58.
Their family recognizes the utmost importance of education and awareness regarding vasulitis as Dean’s diagnosis took many months and countless testing procedures, including a brain biopsy, while being definitive only after autopsy.
The family hopes to raise funds for education and awareness by donoting profits through Dione’s Avon “Willie the White Tiger” charitable campaign. For every tiger sold, the VF will receive $2 and the tiger! (The VF will give the tiger to newly diagnosed pediatric vasculitis patients.)
OR: Payment can be made by check payable to Dione Wetzel and mailed to 9861 N. Cherry, K.C. MO 64155 or by paypal to email address firstname.lastname@example.org . She can be reached at 816-853-5717.
The VF enourages everyone to pass this information along to your friends and family. The tigers will be shipped directly to Dione Wetzel for delivery to VF headquarters.
We sincerely appreciate your participation!
Deanna and Dione
Okay folks so there you have it…a great way to help raise funds for vasculitis research!
