Coins for a Cure

From: Open Medicine Foundation


Coins For A Cure was inspired by one patient's hope for a cure. Eimear
Forde's family has been going door-to-door and all around her town in
Ireland collecting donations to support OMF"s research. Together with
her children, they share the message of hope by using a basket of

One of Eimear's friends came to her home and emptied an entire piggy
bank full of coins into her collection bucket. It was a lot of coins
and totaled up to 50 Euros. This inspired Eimear and her family to
start collecting coins from family, friends, neighbors and local
businesses. In their first "Coins For A Cure" collection, Eimear
donated over $600 USD. Eimear said, "Some of the donations are small
but it all adds up!! We have to find some solutions to this awful
disease, I want to do all I can to help."

We invite you to join Eimear and ask your family and friends to donate
their spare change and to empty their piggy banks. Invite local
businesses to put a collection jar by their registers. You can get
your company, group, church or organization involved too. Let's make
this an international Team OMF collaborative effort. Join the action
and get your community involved.

Millions of patients around the world are in need of a treatment and a
cure. Your coins are truly giving hope to patients and their families,
just like Eimear's. Be a part of Coins For A Cure and help accelerate
research to help millions of patients.
