Now that you know what CURE does, you want to do something to help.
We understand the feeling. (And we think it’s awesome.)
So, what can you do? Lots of things. Check out the ideas below for things you can do online and things you can do in real life.

Things you can do online:
Encourage a CUREkid recovering from surgery
A few clicks and encouraging words (or a photo or video if you are feeling especially creative) are all it takes to make a CUREkid’s day. Want to see proof? Watch our friends Letta and Praise react to receiving Get Well messages from people just like you.
Follow a CUREkid’s story
CURE’s innovative real-time data gives you the opportunity to watch a CUREkid’s entire journey unfold before your eyes. We heal real kids with real stories, and you have a chance to walk alongside them as they find healing. Simply click the “follow” button on any CUREkids’ profile to start receiving updates.
Make social media matter
We are pretty social: you can find CURE on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, LinkedIn, Vimeo, YouTube, and Instagram. Once you’ve found us, help us spread the word about CURE and the kids we are healing by sharing your favorite posts.

More sharing = more healing
If you are going to do an internet movie marathon, make it a marathon of CURE stories. You’ll emerge from your laptop an hour later feeling awesome, we promise. But don’t keep the good news to yourself; share each video you watch before starting the next! More people becoming invested in CURE = more healing for the kids who need it the most.
