ALD Makes Me Blue
Help us advocate for ALD newborn screening & provide support for families!
We are proud to be a participating nonprofit in the ALD Makes Me Blue challenge. ALD Makes Me Blue is a collaborative fundraising coalition among international ALD organizations to raise awareness and funding to fight the disease. You can help by making yourself blue (ideas below), sharing your look on social media, making a donation -- and challenging others to do the same!
