THINK ZEBRA!, an initiative of the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF), encourages CSL Plasma employees, donors, friends and family to make a donation to help create better lives for those in the PI community affected by these rare, chronic diagnoses. Because part of their immune system is either missing or functions improperly, people with PI face an increased vulnerability to infections, endure recurrent health problems, and often develop serious illnesses throughout their entire lives.
And you can help!
Founded in 1980, The Immune Deficiency Foundation improves the diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life of people affected by primary immunodeficiency through fostering a community empowered by advocacy, education, and research. Since 2005, THINK ZEBRA! has brought together plasma donors and centers across the country to support the critical work of IDF by raising funds and spreading awareness.
The dollars raised by THINK ZEBRA! ensure that IDF can continue to:
- Provide educational resources and programs at no cost to individuals and families.
- Power critical patient-focused research that will ultimately lead to cures of all types of PI.
- Lead the way in grassroots advocacy and fight to improve diagnosis and access to treatment.
- Bring together the entire PI community to remind them that they are not alone.
With each plasma donation, we are creating better lives and ultimately getting closer to cures for all types of PI.
