Announcing the August Charity Drive

This is Hal from Team Swagbucks.

3 years ago this Friday, I lost my mother unexpectedly when she suffered a pulmonary embolism after routine foot surgery. Abnormal blood clotting, unfortunately, is one of the symptoms of lupus.

She had suffered from Lupus for a good deal of her adult life, but for a woman in chronic pain, you’d never know it to look at her. She always looked her best, and was determined to beat her disease, not the other way around. She was the bravest person I’ve ever known, and I miss her every single day.

There are over 1.5 million people like my mother in America – people who suffer from lupus and the pain and illness that accompanies it. I’m proud to announce that Swagbucks’ August Charity is the Lupus Foundation of America. The Lupus Foundation of America is a non-profit foundation that provides support to those suffering from lupus while also working to find a cure.

The Swag Bucks you donate here will be translated into a real cash donation directly to the Lupus Foundation of America. Last month, your generous donation of 519,940 Swag Bucks became a donation of $4,212 to the ASPCA. Let’s see if we can top that this month.

Thanks in advance for your generosity. I’m excited to see what we can accomplish as a community.
