Arthritis Foundation Charity Spotlight

Raise your hand — slowly! — if you or anyone you know is familiar with arthritis. Slowly lower it, and get comfortable. You’re about to learn about an organization fighting arthritis, and the surprising way that you can help (hint: Arthritis Foundation car donation).

Arthritis affects 53 million adults and 300,000 children in the United States. That’s 1 in 4 adults! Odds are, you know someone experiencing the pain of arthritis.

The Arthritis Foundation

Also known as the Champion of Yes, the Arthritis Foundation leads the fight against arthritis. They work in a couple distinct ways, which include political advocacy, scientific research, and help and support.

Their advocacy in 2017 helped pass 17 new laws that make life easier for those with arthritis, especially when it comes to access to medical care and treatment. Arthritis is the number 1 cause of disability in the US, the Arthritis Foundation fights to ensure people living with the disease receive the necessary benefits.

Juvenile arthritis has its own set of complications, and the Arthritis Foundation doesn’t just care for and empower youths but also cares for families and communities as well.

The Arthritis Foundation offers 137 local programs across 45 states and has 26 major research projects worth over $30 million. Their efforts have a significant effect on millions of Americans, but they do need your support.

World Arthritis Day

What is arthritis?

You might know, you might not. There are a couple different answers, as what we commonly call arthritis can refer to over 100 different types of joint disease.

World Arthritis Day helps raise awareness of the various forms arthritis can take, and help continue the fight.

 

We at Car Donation Wizard are proud to partner with the Arthritis Foundation, a nonprofit that does fantastic work for the cause. They help advocate for those with arthritis, research the diseases for cures and prevention, and supporting patients and health care providers.

You can help the Arthritis Foundation with a car donation, and we will help make it easy. Visit our website or give us a call at (800) 905-4931.

Spotlight on our Partner: Arthritis Foundation

Rheumatic diseases, arthritis and other diseases of the muscles, joints and bones are common and have tremendous impact on the health and well being of 50 million Americans.

And yet, despite how common these diseases are, awareness – which can lead to earlier diagnosis, better treatments and improved outcomes, more research funding and a steady supply of physicians trained to treat these diseases – isn’t as high as it should be. Through our combined advocacy efforts, the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and the Arthritis Foundation are working to change that.

From advocating for specific legislation to meeting with lawmakers on the Hill to participating in arthritis-related coalitions, both the ACR and the Arthritis Foundation understand that educating Congress requires a sustained effort to create change.

Each day, the Arthritis Foundation works in communities across the United States, researching the causes of and cures for arthritis, supporting community outreach and education programs — which directly help families cope with this devastating disease — and driving grassroots advocacy efforts, which articulate issues and concerns for policy-makers and legislators. You can help make a difference in the lives of millions who live with the daily pain of arthritis. Sign up for the Arthritis Walk, or better yet, become a team captain. The funds you raise will help find a cure for arthritis.  No time to walk? Consider helping in another way – donate a car through our quick and easy vehicle donation program. Together we can bring awareness and inspire research to help millions worldwide.
