While the numbers of COVID-19 cases have decreased, the long-lasting results for non-profits to stay afloat depends on the global community. Those who have lupus &/or an autoimmune disease might have compromised immune systems because of the medications and the severity of their individual illness levels. Our mission is to become stronger, providing the necessary education for those seeking resources that could help tremendously with their day-to-day lives.
A great portion of the various program expenses will go towards scholarships for those who are in need of financial assistance due to job loss because of the pandemic &/or medical bills and much more. Your generosity will help alleviate the financial stress to those who are looking for a helping hand through our resource center. In addition, we are helping the community by lowering monetary stress levels through educating those who are greatly affected on how to work while even in a hospital bed.
Due to the pandemic, we have moved our 2nd Annual Gibson Lupus ARC Pageant virtually. The one of a kind event will take place on October 30, 2020 at 7pm (CST) on a live stream platform (TBA). Our goal is to have at least five main organizations to participate this year in the pageant with at-least one participating Contestant.
The pageant will showcase 4 categories:
- a picture vote ($1 donation per vote)
- a 2-minute testimonial video of their struggles and overcoming them
- an online virtual presentation showing pose
- An interview (asked a question)
We are elated for you &/or your organization to consider assisting us on the success of the event and to accomplish our goals.
Our marketing includes PR, advertising, social media and more. Gibson Lupus ARC uses all marketing efforts in order to spread the word, invite the public thereby increasing opportunities for success at the forthcoming Event. We do believe it is strategic that all Contestants & Vendor Level Sponsors promote to their clientele &/or support group to maximize the success of the Event. Vendor Sponsors that are not willing to promote their participation will not be considered for participation at future events.
