Buy a Shamrock. Help Conquer Muscle Disease.
Chances are you’ve walked into your local grocery store, convenience store, home improvement store or neighborhood restaurant during February and March and seen green paper shamrocks lining the windows and walls.
Nearly 31,000 dedicated retail locations unite with the Muscular Dystrophy Association every year to make a bold statement by raising awareness and critical donations to help people with muscular dystrophy, ALS and other related life-threatening diseases live longer and stay stronger.
Muscle disease takes away everyday abilities like walking, jumping, running, dancing, hugging and sometimes even swallowing, talking or breathing.
Every MDA shamrock you see represents progress in the fight to end muscle disease.
How do paper shamrocks help save lives? Here’s how it works:
With tens of thousands of retail locations participating in the MDA Shamrock program — our nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser — you can easily fight back against muscle disease where you regularly shop to help kids and adults live longer and stay stronger.
MDA is grateful to these national Shamrock partners who are helping conquer muscle disease.
Contact your local MDA office to learn more about the retailers selling MDA shamrocks in your community.
