Lupus and Fibromyalgia Awareness
Our mission is to provide education, support services, and encouragement to empower and uplift those living with lupus and fibromyalgia in an effort to help them and their families face the challenges of these incurable, debilitating illnesses.
Chastity Corbett Youth Scholarship
At Social Butterflies Foundation, we believe in empowering the dreams of youth facing the challenges of lupus and fibromyalgia, as well as the children of survivors. We are proud to introduce the Chastity Corbett Youth Scholarship, a beacon of opportunity for graduating seniors in Virginia and Maryland. If you are a graduating senior with a 3.0 GPA and a survivor or child of a survivor, apply today!
We Love Serving Our Local Community
It is our vision that no one living with lupus or fibromyalgia will have to endure the challenges of these life-threatening illnesses alone. We envision lupus and fibromyalgia survivors uniting so their voices and needs will be heard to receive the support needed. Together we will make these invisible illnesses visible.
Give Back on Giving Tuesday!
During this season of giving, please consider supporting lupus and fibromyalgia thrivers and their families. It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans have some form of lupus. An estimated 4 million Americans are living with fibromyalgia. Lupus and fibromyalgia are devastating chronic illnesses with no cure and receive little to no attention.
DMV Plate Initiative
Help Us Make These DMV Plates A Reality. Pre-Order Your Lupus or Fibro DMV Plate Today!
In order to help further raise awareness for these two cruel illnesses, Social Butterflies Foundation has launched our DMV License Plate initiative. Currently, there is no specialty plate for lupus or fibromyalgia in Virginia. Having a plate will help bring these debilitating illnesses to the forefront by raising awareness and making them visible. It will also show survivors that they are not alone in this fight. We need 450 pre-purchased plates for both lupus and fibromyalgia specialty plates. We need your help to make the specialty plates possible by you pre-purchasing your plate.
