January 7th marked the official start of the 6th annual Phelan Lucky campaign to benefit the Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation (PMSF). For those of you who have been ‘lucky’ enough to have experienced a Phelan Lucky campaign in the past, you know that the excitement that surrounds this campaign is contagious and something not to be missed.
Phelan Lucky is an online t-shirt/sweatshirt campaign that began in 2014 as the Randolph Family’s way of giving back to the Foundation. Since its inception, popularity has grown and PMSF families across the globe have embraced the campaign and engaged their family and friends to join in on the fun. While the campaign has raised over $250K to support the Foundation, the true testament of the power of the campaign is seen through the awareness that is generated from folks donning their apparel.
Please join us online at www.customink.com/fundraising/phelanlucky2019 for the 22 days of Phelan Lucky lasting until January 28th . This will be the ONLY time that you will be able to purchase a shirt (there are always some who sadly miss out). While the shirts are obviously the perfect addition to your St. Paddy’s Day wardrobe, they are also great for Rare Disease Day (Feb. 28th), International PMS Awareness Day (Oct. 22nd) and literally ANY day you are feeling lucky!
Still not convinced… check us out on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to see what all the fuss is about. You may be surprised by who you see supporting us and where they are! Grab your shirts while you can and show us where and why YOU are #PhelanLucky!!!
Oh…did I forget to mention that you should most definitely tell your friends… once they see your shirt, they are going to want one too!
