How it Works…

Shining Stars was created to help families from all over the world attend our
biennial convention - "We Are Not Alone"!  Families who want to attend We Are
Not Alone - the 4th Microcephaly Convention ask friends, family members, co-
workers, local corporations, etc. for donations.  They can also hold fundraisers
(car washes, bake sales, cocktail parties, and yard sales)!  50% of the funds that
you raise will be applied toward you and your immediate family’s registration
fees and accommodations (airfare not included).  The other 50% goes towards
helping other families be able to attend, flying all the top physicians in and other
convention expenses.

You will keep track of your donations on a donation log, which will be provided
to you.  Send in donations as often as you’d like.  Please make checks or money
orders payable to FCM or Foundation for Children with Microcephaly.  Please do
not send cash in the mail!  We also accept credit card donations; inform your
sponsor to visit www.micro
cephaly.org/donations.html.  Remind your sponsor
to name your child (when making a credit card contribution) in the comments
box.
