I strongly believe that “to whom much is given, much is required”. The greatest joy in life comes from selfless service, not from money and heaping up material possessions. That’s why it's very important to me that a portion of all Rebirth Rings™ proceeds go to a worthy cause to help make this world a better place. I chose to support Rheumatic Rescue, an absolutely fantastic and admirable non-profit foundation and network of medical professionals, scientists and volunteers.Together, they working selflessly and without monetary compensation, to reduce the burden of rheumatic heart disease in children in Samoa and other areas of the world. When you shop at RebirthRings™, you choose to make a difference.
ABOUT RHEUMATIC RESCUE FOUNDATION
Rheumatic Rescue began in 2009 and has flourished to become a viable clinical, educational, and research program with the potential of saving the lives of hundreds of children as well as influencing clinical protocol for rheumatic heart disease (RHD). The target population is children of Samoa, specifically ages 5 to 15 years. These years have been identified as the time of vulnerability to the cause and effect of RHD.
Rheumatic Rescue (RR) is a coordinative effort that combines scientific disciplines to create a comprehensive program capable of effecting change and generating new and insightful information relative to RHD.
The children we find that are sick usually don’t know it, but their quality of life, and ability to function are at risk. In the country of Samoa, physical health is important in sustaining life. With the help from our volunteers and donors, we can intervene and help these children lead relatively normal lives. Our program can be viewed as a major research project, an awareness campaign, and a humanitarian effort because we are tackling this problem from all angles. Because of this, and with your help, we can fulfill our aim to decrease rheumatic heart disease worldwide.
