Support MSU and myositis patients in creative ways
Did you know you can earn donations for MSU?
Many of us living with myositis did a lot of online shopping prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Aside from the obvious convenience, online shopping can be a necessity for those who require assistive devices, not to mention the pain and fatigue. Why not take your online shopping to another level and earn donations for MSU?
We have joined with several online programs where a percentage of your purchases are donated to MSU, with no increase in cost or any fees. Each program is different, so be sure to read the terms and privacy policies. We highly recommend Amazon Smile (see below)!
Looking for a program like AmazonSmile where you can find deals and coupons, and a portion of your purchases are donated to the charity of your choice which we hope will be Myositis Support and Understanding Association.
Shopping using goodshop allows you to shop many different popular stores and many of the percent of donations are higher than what AmazonSmile donated. You have nothing to use. You can shop and earn donations.
Register with GoodShop, who will send you a confirmation email, chose “select your cause” and search for Myositis Support and Understanding, then shop and find and use coupons for just about anything.

Support MSU on Walmart.com by rounding up
Introducing Walmart Spark Good, a program that allows you to support our work and organization when you shop on Walmart.com.
To add MSU as your SparkGood nonprofit, click the button below to visit our Walmart profile directly. OR, under your Walmart account, choose Giving and Impact. Then search for Myositis Support and Understanding Association – you may have to clear location filters – as your Walmart SparkGood Charity and round up to donate – donate spare change by automatically rounding up your orders to the nearest dollar at checkout when shopping Walmart.com.
This is an excellent way to help support MSU, as is Amazon Smile.
Shop using iGive
Like with the popular Amazon Smile program, you can shop at 1000’s of popular stores when you register and download the iGive icon on your computer’s browser and get an app for your smartphone or tablet. Donation percentages through iGive.com are often higher than with Amazon Smile.
When you shop as you normally would and the store is an iGive store, Myositis Support and Understanding will receive a store donation based upon a percentage of your purchase.
If you are doing web searches, why not use Goodsearch who will give Myositis Support and Understanding a penny for each search you do.
Shop Amazon Smile
Amazon has decided to end the helpful AmazonSmile program. We thank you to those who supported us through that program and hope you will check out some of the other options on this page.

Review MSU on Facebook
Facebook is where we began in 2010 and where many of our members and supporters stood beside us and challenged us to be better.
You can leave a review of Myositis Support and Understanding Association (MSU) publicly on our Facebook page.
These reviews are important to help us better our day-to-day management plus these reviews can help other myositis patients and caregivers find the same patient-centered nonprofit organization that we hope has helped you.
Create a Fundraiser
Create a fundraiser on Facebook or on our partner platform. And, hosting an event, like the Empower Walk or EmpoweRun 5K, can raise a lot of needed money and awareness.
We are an all-volunteer nonprofit. If you are passionate about helping those with myositis we could use your help. Check out some of the volunteer opportunities and apply.
