Give a Dime about Parkinson’s: A Red Letter Campaign


This month, join Parkinson’s advocates around the country in showing that you “Give a Dime” about Parkinson’s.

Inspired by the 1938 March of Dimes to End Polio, the “Give a Dime about Parkinson’s” founders international Parkinson’s experts Dr. Michael Okun, Dr. Bas Bloem, Dr. Ray Dorsey, and Dr. Todd Sherer are building a movement to end Parkinson’s. And you can be part of it. Here’s how:

Send a Red Letter to the White House

For the “Red Letter Campaign,” thousands of people with Parkinson’s and Parkinson’s advocates around the country will send letters to the White House requesting the following three actions:

  1. Ban chemicals that are linked to Parkinson’s, including paraquat, core purifiers, and trichloroethylene
  2. Ask that Medicare make its coverage of telemedicine permanent
  3. Ask the NIH to increase its funding tenfold

You can order a copy of the letter here or print the card anytime by clicking here. Then, personalize it, sign it, and mail it on March 16
