Dear friends and family,
This holiday season, I'm partnering with Ivory Row to help benefit a charity that's near to my heart.
I'm choosing to help support The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation
(ADDF) because so many lives are touched by this horrid disease. Break throughs appear within our reach and we must do whatever we can to support scientists to overcome the disease and its symptoms.
The ADDF is the only public charity whose sole mission is to accelerate the discovery and development of drugs to prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias and cognitive aging. No other organization targets finding a cure with the focus and intensity that they bring to the battle.
Founded in 1998 by the Estée Lauder family, the ADDF awards grants to leading scientists conducting breakthrough drug discovery and early clinical research. They use a venture philanthropy model to bridge the worldwide funding gap between basic research and later-stage drug development, using any return on investment to support new research.
The ADDF’s overhead and administrative costs are covered by a private foundation, allowing 100% of public funds raised to be used directly for scientific research and programs.
By partnering with Ivory Row, 15% of any sales made through this page will be donated to the ADDF, helping to search for an Alzheimer's cure.
Please help us make a difference in the world (and get yourself some great cashmere in the meantime.) Shop my personally curated collection below and then use the following code to ensure that the donations are directed to the ADDF.
Thanks for your help and support.
