The online autoimmune arthritis art show and auction

The art auction is this weekend! You can bid on items in live auction or buy prints/cards from the Fine Art America gallery. All pieces donated by either patients with autoimmune arthritis, or members of their whanau. Read more below:

The International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement (IAAM)started as The 'Buckle Me Up" Movement in 2009, created as a way to raise awareness by rebranding the face of 'arthritis' with young and trendy jewelry (original “buckle bracelet” shown on left). In just a month, the word of this rebranding went International and the need for global awareness became apparent. On May 7th, 2011 (ironically also the 40th birthday of the Founder and CEO) notification was received that, what is now called the International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement, official 501c3 nonprofit status was granted. This weekend marks their first fundraiser, using donations to fund the start up costs necessary to get this nonprofit up and running!Continue reading on The online autoimmune arthritis art show & auction - National Autoimmune Arthritis
