We want to make sure that the children and adults who suffer from SMA have the best medical assistance. We also want to help researchers find a cure or treatment for this horrible disease while at the same time raise awareness about SMA
Savannah, GA (PRWEB) March 19, 2015
Old Savannah Insurance Agency in Savannah, GA celebrates the beginning of a new charity campaign as part of its ongoing Community Program, now looking to raise enough funds to provide medical assistance to individuals with SMA and for research devoted to finding a cure for the disease. In collaboration with SMA Angels Charity, the agency announces that those with a heart for supporting children and adults with SMA can now join the agency’s efforts by contributing through the designated donations page at http://www.oldsavannahinsuranceagency.com/Help-Children-Fight-The-Battle-Against-SMA_17_community_cause.
SMA is the term for a group of inherited neuromuscular diseases affecting thousands of children and adults all over the world. The disease destroys motor neurons of the spinal cord and brain stem. These nerve cells deliver electrical and chemical signals to voluntary muscles, which are used for crawling, walking, head and neck control, swallowing, and even breathing. In its most severe form, SMA is the “Number One Genetic Killer of Children Under Two”. At present there is no cure or treatment.
James Grusheski, the agency’s principal, who has helped touch the lives of many other individuals in Savannah, attested, “We want to make sure that the children and adults who suffer from SMA have the best medical assistance. We also want to help researchers find a cure or treatment for this horrible disease while at the same time raise awareness about SMA.”
The agency has set a goal of $500, which will allow SMA Angels Charity provide medical assistance while at the same time provide financial support to researchers devoted to finding a cure. To achieve that goal, the agency’s network of customers, business partners, friends, staff and family are being invited to actively participate by not only contributing financially, but also by helping spread the word to others.
Old Savannah Insurance Agency continues to employ its own resources to ensure the success of their community program. The current campaign is being promoted through the agency’s social media channels, email and text message communications, as well as through their monthly magazine, delivered to thousands of households in Georgia. In fact, Our Hometown magazine reserves a full page to feature this worthy cause, including all of its details. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue can be accessed here: http://www.oldsavannahinsuranceagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
The donations page at http://www.oldsavannahinsuranceagency.com/Help-Children-Fight-The-Battle-Against-SMA_17_community_cause will be kept active until the end of April, where donors can contribute. The agency will acknowledge in their monthly magazine all of those who donate a minimum of $5 to help with the purchase of the safe playground set.
Old Savannah Insurance Agency will continue to work with individuals and nonprofits in the area to identify new worthy opportunities to support the community, every 60 days. Through the agency’s website, any members of the community can also submit information on known families or persons who could use some help – http://www.oldsavannahinsuranceagency.com/Submit-A-Community-Cause-Idea_45. Entries are diligently submitted for review, and the elected worthy causes are properly contacted by a representative of Old Savannah’s Community Program.
