Our new friend, Marcia, runs a non-profit called HopeButterly that helps children in Brazil with a rare disease that causes fragile, blistering skin, like the wings of a butterfly. With any friction or weather change, they can easily develop 3rd degree burns that can become infected. 

Epidermolysis bullosa has no cure. Treatment focuses on caring for blisters and preventing new ones. Your donation will provide Marcia's organization with money to continue to send bandages, soap, ointment, and special sprays to remove the bandages. 

Any donation amount helps! Really!
