It's an easy and meaningful way to show your care and support for the Prader-Willi community.
Here are a few creative ideas to help you make an impact:
1. Use Minted for your printing needs.

Our <son/daughter>,<insert name>, has Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), a rare genetic syndrome that encompasses a wide range of medical and developmental issues. Most notably, people with PWS never feel full, struggling with constant, insatiable hunger. Most individuals with PWS also struggle with behavior challenges and intellectual disabilities which limit their independence.
Currently, there are no treatments for the most life-limiting challenges of PWS, but we're not just waiting and hoping for new treatments, and a cure, we've joined the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (FPWR) whose innovative strategy is breaking institutional barriers, creating new synergies and accelerating the discovery and development of new treatments for PWS.
FPWR’s work is imperative to the future of our <son/daughter>. We’ve made tremendous progress in research but until treatments are found, we must push forward with urgency, because every person with PWS deserves a FULL and INDEPENDENT life. Should you wish to learn more or make a 100% tax-deductible donation to the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research, please visit www.fpwr.org
With Gratitude and Hope,
4. Make it Personal
Share your personal story: In less than 5 minutes, you can customize your own webpage with your message and a photo of your choice!

No matter how you choose to share your story and advocate for PWS research, your efforts will make a meaningful impact. Thank you for helping us find treatments for PWS!
