2016 Crush Chiari / Smash Syringomyelia / Squash EDS

About This Campaign

Help us Crush, Smash and Squash... with a little change!

Want to help raise important funds for programs and research that benefit people living with Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and related disorders -- but don't have a lot of time or money? Maybe you want to help but you aren't sure how?

This September, CSF wants to partner with you to CRUSH CHIARI, SMASH SYRINGOMYELIA and SQUASH EDS! It will be fun, easy, and helpful in achieving the goal of totally crushing these disorders. All you need is commitment to a little "change"...

How to get started:

1. Register online by clicking the button to the right. There are no teams.

2. To make your own branded fundraising container, download the PDFs from CSF's website:
CRUSH CHIARI small containers
CRUSH CHIARI large containers
SMASH SM small containers
SMASH SM large containers
SQUASH EDS small containers
SQUASH EDS large containers
Print these out and tape them onto jars, jugs, containers, etc.

You can also find printable Chiari, syringomyelia, EDS and related disorder info sheets on our website..

3. Collect all the change you can during the month of September. Convert the change you’ve collected to a check and mail to CSF, 29 Crest Loop, Staten Island, NY 10312. Be sure to include your name (the one you registered with) so you receive credit!

4. You’re not limited to collecting change, however! For those who would like to donate online, family and friends can do so through your personal fundraising page on this site.

5. This fundraising site will be open year-round... BUT to qualify to win prizes for this year, CSF must receive all your collected donations by October 7th!

6. The top three Crushers, Smashers and Squashers will have their choice to receive a prize to be announced later. 
Note: these top three "Crushers" will have to raise at least $500 to qualify for this prize! 

ALL Crushers who raise at least $250 will win a free CSF gift!

7. Get your schools and work places involved! Get out there and collect that loose change to bring on some "change" of your own!


Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation

Campaign to Support Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation

CSF: Who Are We?

CSF (Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in October 2007 with the goal of raising awareness and finding a cure for Chiari malformation (CM), syringomyelia (SM) and related disorders. 

CSF Network of Experts

The CSF Scientific Education & Advisory Board is comprised of several internationally renowned medical doctors, professors, scientists and experts. Further, the CSF Board of Directors and Board of Trustees include community and business leaders, educators, legal experts, families and patients, who have long been advocates in the CM/SM community. Their skills and drive to develop, fund, and oversee CSF programs and research will improve the lives of the over one million families affected by Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and associated disorders in the US, alone. 

CSF: Recognition & Awards

CSF is currently the only organization serving patients with Chiari, syringomyelia and related disorders to have earned all three of the following distinctions: BBB Wise Giving Alliance Seal, Guidestar Gold Seal and the Health On the Net Code. Check us out in the November 2016 issue of USA Today among the other nonprofits deemed as both effective in their missions, and responsible with their donors' dollars

    For our very special Chiari and Cancer Warrior Princess Cari Jo who is definitely and without a doubt #CariJoStrong! This willingness to fight for survival must obviously come from a long line of Strong women in your family including your Mom Tammy, old sister Andrea, and Grandma Nall. Sent with tons of love and hugs from Gary and Dawn Niehaus!

    Why $36, Sandi? It signifies "chai," (times two). That stands for life. It's my pleasure to donate and know you. Robin
