Painting For A Purpose 

“We had SUCH a great time and amazing turnout for Zenendipity‘s Painting for a Purpose event in Bedford, VA, USA! We charged $35 for entry, zebra stripes were painted, and money was raised for The Ehlers-Danlos Society to further research and awareness!” – Peggy.

A Mano Lends A Hand

A Mano bistro restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, chose The Ehlers-Danlos Society as the beneficiary of their Lends A Hand program for the month of May. Every Thursday during that month, proceeds from dine-in or takeaway meals purchased during the dinner service were donated!

Revenge of the Sith Fundraiser

Special thanks to Inspire Martial Arts in Randolph, New Jersey, who hosted a Star Wars-themed Light Saber Martial Arts Demo and Class, with all proceeds donated to The Ehlers-Danlos Society.

Pizza Parlour Fundraiser

Many restaurants (both chains and local), as well as local shop vendors like to participate in charity days. Ask your favorite restaurant or shop if they will donate a portion of sales or proceeds for a day or evening to support The Ehlers-Danlos Society. Thank you to Chrystal Nichols who held a fundraiser at her local pizza parlour with a portion of proceeds going to The Ehlers-Danlos Society.

Performance Fundraiser

Thank you to Jewels Parks and Drag Zebras, who hosted a benefit show during May Awareness Month in Denver, Colorado, with proceeds being donated to The Ehlers-Danlos Society. Guests enjoy performances from talented performers who live with EDS and HSD.
