March GreenApples Charity: MDA

Huge thanks to the Muscular Dystrophy Association for letting us rearrange our charity schedule to accept donations for Haiti in January. We are happy to feature them again as our  GreenApples Charity of the Month for March 2010!

MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education via more than 200 offices across the country. They sponsors over 200 hospital-affiliated clinics, more than 330 research projects around the world, and support more research on neuromuscular diseases than any other private-sector organization in the world.

MDA was created in 1950 by a group of adults with muscular dystrophy, parents of children with muscular dystrophy and a physician-scientist studying the disorder. Since its earliest days, it has been energized by its number-one volunteer and national chairman, entertainer Jerry Lewis.

Thank you in advance for your support!
