How you can help

#1    Help spread the word about SMARD.  Tell someone about Nate.  Link to our blog.  Share it on Facebook.  The more people know about SMARD, the better!

#2     Donate to SMARD research.  The most promising research being done for SMARD is a collaboration between the Center for Gene Therapy in Columbus, Ohio and Centro Dino Ferrari in Milan, Italy. Donations are accepted at both institutions, and will go specifically to SMARD research if you designate them as such. You can also learn more about the research and donate at

#3   Use Amazon Smile for your Amazon purchases.  If you choose Smashsmard as your Amazon Smile charity, the foundation will receive a donation of 0.5% of eligible purchases every time your shop.  It's an easy way to help kids with SMARD without much extra effort.  All you have to do is go to each time you shop Amazon.
