Why Birds for Sofia
We named our nonprofit after Sofia Darbinyan, a child with SMA whose life was saved. Sofia was one of the more fortunate children who did receive Zolgensma therapy. To raise the funds for her treatment, over fifteen hundred artists around the world drew birds in Sofia's honor. Bird by bird, they brought new awareness to her cause, and Sofia was saved.

Help us send the birds of hope to those who really need them. Join our fight for children with rare diseases today!
