Gaucher Awareness Month

Gaucher Community Wheels

October 2020

The Gaucher Community Alliance is pleased to announce Gaucher Community Wheels, a North American campaign for Gaucher Awareness Month during the month of October. The campaign has three primary purposes: engage and empower the Gaucher community, raise awareness of Gaucher in the general community, and raise funds and resources that will help Gaucher patients and their families. Gaucher Community Wheels was initiated by a Gaucher spouse who would like to raise awareness and support for Gaucher disease. The GCA’s involvement in her effort furthers the goal of the GCA’s mission to provide peer-to-peer support to the Gaucher community. By patients. For patients. 

We hope your organization will get involved in Gaucher Awareness Month and support Gaucher patients and their families.

Gaucher: Be Aware of Rare.

Designed by the Gaucher spouse who reached out to us, we will send a 6” car magnet to each household in our database with a letter describing the campaign and a donation request. In the letter we will ask our community to display the magnet on their cars for the month of October and submit a photo of the car and magnet for our website. Our goal is to have 50 independent photos of cars with Gaucher magnets around the US and Canada and raise $5,000 in donations directly from our community.

Be A Sponsor

The GCA recognizes that the success of our organization and the ability to fulfill our mission is intrinsically linked to corporate, foundation, and industry support through sponsorships and grants. In that regard, GCA asks for your support as a sponsor of this campaign. 

Being a North American organization, the GCA reaches a wide audience both online and through more targeted communications. The GCA will promote your sponsorship of this campaign on our website, through social media and email blasts, and in print with links and logo displays that will show the Gaucher community your support and dedication to helping Gaucher patients live better lives with their disease.

We hope you will take this a step further and promote Gaucher Community Wheels internally within your company as well. Let us know how many magnets you would like to distribute to your employees and we will send them to you! We will highlight the photos under your company’s name on our website.
