It surprises us that not many are aware of multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease involving the destruction of protective sheathing around your central nervous system. MS affects an estimated 2.5 million people, just behind Alzheimer’s Disease, as the second most prevalent neurodegenerative disorder on the planet. MS however has proven to be even more destructive to the younger generation, the 20-50 year olds, rather than the aging population.
However there is hope. The National MS Society continues to provide direct funding to clinical research teams and direct support to the families affected by this horrid neurological disorder. We are very supportive of the research and aid programs the National MS Society provides and would like to support their efforts in any way we can. If you or a friend has been affected by this disease, we encourage you to reach out to us and share your story, or even better, help us raise additional funding for the 2.5 million afflicted.
Nude Nicotine has friends and relatives of employees whose lives have been seriously compromised by this disease. In an effort to support the funding of medically proven, successful treatment options by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, we will be contributing a SIGNIFICANT chunk of change to the Bay to Bay Bike MS 150 mile 2 day cycling tour.
Nude Nicotine will contribute a minimum of $1000, enough to fund over 60 consultations from an MS Navigator to those in need. In order to reach this goal, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Use the coupon code ‘FightMSintheNude’ upon checkout from now through October 18th (the first day of the race). We will contribute 20% of your order total DIRECTLY to the National MS Society. A minimum donation will be made of $1000, but if we receive more support than our $1000 goal, we will continue to donate $20% of the order totals to this noble cause.
While we all may be on our way to a healthier lifestyle sans smoking, others are plagued with more critical problems, less easily solved. Do your part to raise awareness for MS and help us fight the good fight.
