Help IDF Make a Difference
Wear Your Zebra Pin with Pride

It’s that time of year again – time to help IDF make a difference in our community through your gift to the annual fund!


And this year, in recognition of the 150+ primary immunodeficiency diseases, if you contribute $150 or more, you’ll receive a tasteful black and white cloisonné lapel pin.  This zebra ribbon pin will promote awareness in your community every time you wear it!


Promoting awareness of primary immunodeficiency diseases is integral to what we do.  Every day we receive inquiries from newly-diagnosed patients and family members who are unfamiliar with their diseases.  Frightened by the unknown, many new patients must navigate through a sea of medical information on the internet, much of it untrue.  They often tell us of the relief they felt when they first discovered IDF and all of our resources.


We also promote awareness by hosting scores of patient educational meetings and conferences across the country each year; many attendees have never before met another patient.  These events can be life-changing.


Last year, more than 11,000 patients and healthcare professionals attended an IDF educational presentation.  While we’re thrilled that we’ve reached so many, there is still much work to do and we need your assistance.


With the help of charitable gifts, IDF makes a real difference to thousands of “zebras!”  But we cannot do it without you.  Please join the herd and make a generous contribution today.  And remember, for a donation of $150 or more, you will receive a cloisonné zebra ribbon pin to wear on your lapel, so you too can promote awareness of primary immunodeficiency diseases in your community.  Thank you for your support!
