Shoe Fundraiser

Our goal is to raise $300,000 through the end of 2022 generating $150K for Research for the next two years and operating budget for conference and operating budget. 

We know how difficult fundraising can be. We are excited to kick off a unique fundraiser that allows you to raise money by just collecting gently worn, used and new shoes.

Click here and a representative will help you every step of the way. Funds2Orgs even picks up and ships the shoes you collect right from your front porch.

You can also email stacie@pandasnetwork.org if you have questions.


T-Shirt Campaign

We are excited to announce our first “Art By PANDAS Youth Advocates” t-shirt campaign kicked off by Emma Smollar, a brave 16-year-old from New York who has battled and is healing from PANDAS. Emma designed the shirt to inspire curiosity and dialogue about this under-researched illness. We love it! Don’t you? ORDER BY SEPT. 16 to receive by Oct. 9th Awareness Day! Read more about Emma and her passion for our community here
