Here at the College of Business at the University of Rhode Island we are teamed up with the Matty Fund. "The Matty Fund provides family resources, raises epilepsy awareness, promotes patient safety and improves the quality of life for children and families living with epilepsy." " Epilepsy is the name given to seizures that happen more than once in an otherwise healthy youngster, or when the child has a physical condition that causes seizures from time to time."


For more information on the foundation or epilepsy, visit the website here: http://mattyfund.org/what-is-epilepsy/


Group were assigned to us students where we set goals to raise money for a family affected by epilepsy seeking help from the Matty Fund. My group is sponsoring a little girl named Emily Vecchio. Emily just finished her first year at the Matty Camp and is loving her experiences despite her physical condition.


If you would like to help raise money for Emily, we are selling t-shirts where 100% of the profits go straight to the Matty Fund. The t shirts are all sold online and are only $10+shipping. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt, please follow the link:
