BIG NEWS! We have launched our newest campaign: the #PIeChallenge. The #PIechallenge is a social media awareness/fundraising campaign for PI (primary immunodeficiency).
What is it? The way we’re asking you to spread awareness and fundraise is to bake a homemade pie, post a photo of the pie on social media with our attached copy/paste message, and then tag at least 3 friends that you think have a knack for baking or a love for a good cause to take on the challenge. We encourage you to get as creative with your pies as possible. They can be decorative, they can be weird, they can be enormous/tiny, they can be apple pies, pumpkin pies, or pizza pies. The choice is yours! Have fun with it.
Lastly, we are asking for a donation of $5.00 once you have posted your photo. Each photo submission is entered in our PIechallenge contest for great prizes.
A diagnosis of Primary Immunodeficiency can throw a family into financial crisis.

Additional costs for some medications, medical equipment, travel, accommodation, parking, meals, all creates a strain when the families energy should be on their child getting better. You can make a donation to help a family in crisis near you.
