Calibrick has donated 10% of all sales to the CCFA (nearly $5k as of 5/1/22), in gratitude for their support through my own Crohn's journey.
We have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s Disease and related conditions - Calibrick store customer donations DO help us get closer to the cure. Since opening in 2018, under the CCFA's former classy.org fundraising pages, we donated $4,519.00 to the CCFA through January 22, 2022. Now, we open this new fundraising page under the CCFA's new platform to continue our support of this worthy organization.
About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affects almost 1 in 100 people. They are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive tract, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon). Symptoms may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, fever, and weight loss. Many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgery. Most people develop the diseases between the ages of 15 and 35; however the incidence is increasing in children.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is the largest non-profit, voluntary, health organization dedicated to finding cures for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The Foundation’s mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults who are affected by these diseases. The Foundation works to fulfill its mission by funding research; providing educational resources for patients and their families, medical professionals, and the public; and furnishing supportive services for those afflicted with IBD.
