This project came about two years into my journey from living with Lupus SLE. I was 26 years old when I became very sick, it took about a month and a half before diagnoses were made.
Living with Lupus has became and still is one of my greatest life challenges… having said that, a few items have helped me cope living with this disease and I want to share them with more people.
I collected four non-medicinal items, raised enough funds from friends and family to prepare 100 bags (and counting) of Lupus Care Packs to be given away to other people who live with Lupus.
Please share your feedback on the Lupus Care Pack below.
There are still about 60 Lupus Care Pack to give-away, to request for one to be delivered, please follow this instruction:
- Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and complete address
- The bags would be dispatched weekly, unless I became unwell then it will be dispatched twice a month; every week 2 and week 4. So, depending on when your request was emailed, you might not receive the bag straight away.
- When the bag has been dispatched, an email would be sent to you informing you of this information.
- Please make sure that you are home to receive the parcel, or if you are not and you receive a notice from the post-office, please make sure that you pick-up the parcel within the specified date or Australia Post will return it to me (which cost me the same $ to retrieve it)
***I’ve received a few international requests for the Lupus Care Pack, at this stage unfortunately I would not be able to fund postage outside of Australia due to fund constraints. If you have sent me an email, I will reply to you individually. I am trying to raise more money in order to post these items out, if you could please share the fundraising far and wide, I would be most grateful.***
