#Guzzle4Good to help ALS patients during COVID19
COVID19 is making all the headlines these days but we can’t forget about other people battling life-threatening illnesses like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
The Susan Mast ALS Foundation based in Grand Rapids provides support for ALS patients and their caregivers year-round. This time they’ve created a new campaign similar to the Ice Bucket Challenge from 2015. It’s called the Guzzle for Good.
People are encouraged to pick a drink of their choice and post a video of themselves, drinking the beverage on Facebook and then make a donation to the Susan Mast ALS Foundation. They’re asked to tag #Guzzle4Good. The money will then be used for meal delivery services to ALS patients during this COVID19 crisis.
ALS patients already have an underlying health issue, so it’s vital they and their caregivers stay extra vigilant about staying inside and away from potential coronavirus threats.
For more information about the Guzzle for Good and ways to donate check out the Susan Mast ALS Foundation here.
