Holiday Season 2022 Campaign
This holiday season we are inviting you to join our efforts and help the Birds for Sofia Foundation to fundraise for kids with rare diseases from Ukraine.

2) You can join an existing team.

3) Make an individual donation to our major holiday fundraiser

Please invite your friends and family to help to spread the word!

This time around Ukrainian vulnerable kids with rare diseases need us more than ever! In some regions of Ukraine, there are electricity shortages and a lack of heat. The Birds for Sofia Foundation will purchase the most needed electricity generators to ensure the life support of the bedridden children.

Let's make some magic happen for these children during this holiday season!

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!
