For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to Action Duchenne. My youngest son Jenson has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and we like many, are desperate to find a cure for this debilitating, life limiting condition. I've chosen this charity because their mission means so, so much to me and I hope that you'll consider contributing as a way of celebrating with me. - Garry Whitehouse, Parent (Facebook Fundraiser)

By having collection tins in local stores/hairdressers/schools or around the office, you can easily fundraise for Action Duchenne. Get in touch with us to request a collection tin (or as many as you need) and it's also a great way to raise the profile of Duchenne!

Facebook have made it easy for you and your connections to raise money online. 

And they don't charge a fee - 100% of the donations come directly to help us change the future for everyone with Duchenne in their lives. 

How to do it?

click here or follow these steps;

Click Fundraisers in the left menu of your News Feed, click Raise Money, select Nonprofit/Charity, select Action Duchenne, choose a cover photo and fill in the details of your fundraiser, click Create.

Be creative with your Facebook Fundraiser, lots of our supporters have chosen to raise funds for Action Duchenne instead of Birthday presents, but you can come up with your own ideas!
