Share your Story
Our foundation has evolved from the outpouring of stories from people and their families being impacted by Lupus. If you or someone you know has been affected by Lupus, we ask that you share your story with us. We will keep your information and story private unless we have your permission to share.
The You Got This, Kid! Leadership Foundation is growing rapidly and we have a number of opportunities for volunteers to support us directly, including but not limited to, an event coordinator, social media specialist and advocacy support.
We also partner with several environmental organizations to host volunteer events that focus on improving the environmental landscape and waterways in local communities. Our evolving list of partners include the Lupus Foundation of America, the Musconetcong Watershed Association (MWA), Bette Midler's organization the New York Restoration Project (NYRP), the Mill River Watershed Association and the Alliance for Living Oceans.
