Lupus and Fibromyalgia Awareness Plates


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 not a specialty plate for lupus nor 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 the lupus and fibromyalgia specialty plates. We need your help to make the specialty plates possible by you pre-purchasing your plate. You must be a Virginia resident. Together we WILL make these invisible illnesses VISIBLE!

The specialty plates cost $25 (+ $2 online processing fee) for non personalized plates and $35 (+ $2 online processing fee) for personalized plates.

*The processing fee is NOT being charged by DMV, is wholly unrelated to DMV, and will NOT be refundable should the special plate not be issued. 

*The design in the picture is preliminary and may be subject to changes pending DMV approval.
