The RFTS "Stand Up For CP" End-of-Year Challenge!

Dear Friends of RFTS, Inc.

Happy Holidays and a heart-felt thank you for all the support you have shown RFTS this amazing year. Together, we are making a difference for children with Cerebral Palsy. The lives of these children can be better tomorrow because of the choices and decisions we make today.

As the clock ticks down to the end of year and you count your many blessings, please consider donating now online to our "Stand Up For CP" End of Year Fundraising Challenge. Our goal is to raise $100K by the end of the year – every dime of which will go directly to benefit children with Cerebral Palsy (see below). Each and every dollar you donate will help, so consider skipping Starbucks today and give a child with CP a brighter future instead.

We want every child with Cerebral Palsy to stand up and reach for the stars...

Over 800,000 Americans have cerebral palsy. Hundreds of thousands of them are children. We now know that the root causes and potential new treatments cures for cerebral palsy can be identified…but only with your financial support. That's why we launched the RFTS "Stand Up For CP" Challenge.

Are you ready to make a difference? Please consider RFTS in your end-of-year giving. We need your help to make progress. Click here to donate now - simply click on the "Just Give" button at the top right hand corner of our website. Every dollar you donate is tax deductible and donating online through our secure online donation system ensures you will get an immediate thank you and tax receipt. It couldn't be easier or more secure and only takes a minute.

Please visit to learn more about why RFTS is worth donating to. Take a look at our home page and find out about the exciting new pediatric research projects and grants we're now involved with. Learn about how the AACPDM honored RFTS with a major award in October. Discover who the newest member of our RFTS Medical Advisory Board is (hint: he's from Johns Hopkins and the Kennedy Kreiger Institute conducting exciting neural plasticity research). And much, much more.

Also, don't forget to check out to the new Resources section of our website where you will find information about pediatric cerebral palsy clinical trials around the country, as well as many other resources you can turn to for more information both nationally and in your area (updated frequently).

Thank you again for your support and please "Stand Up For CP" today.

All the best to you and your family in the coming New Year,

Reaching For The Stars. A Foundation Of Hope For Children With Cerebral Palsy

© 2007 Reaching for the Stars. All Rights Reserved.

Launched in 2004, RFTS, Inc. is a tax-exempt, national nonprofit foundation committed to advocacy, education and driving research to serve the needs of children with Cerebral Palsy and those parents and care givers involved in their care.

RFTS, Inc. is the only education, advocacy and research foundation in the U.S. started by and for the parents of children with Cerebral Palsy centered on the belief that national pediatric research can lead to new treatments of CP and deliver measurable improvements in the lives of impacted children and their families. Research for CP, particularly in children, is under-supported and severely under-funded...slowing progress towards new regenerative neurological discoveries and limiting the awareness of CP in children. We need your help to create change.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. --Margaret Mead
