By Shari-Liane Sangster

Team Fox members are putting their business savvy to work in order to speed a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Many members of our community are using portion of proceeds campaigns to engage their networks in supporting vital Parkinson’s disease research programs. Here are a few recent clothing-based portion of proceeds fundraisers to inspire you:

Bakdrop is an online retailer of custom socks designed by artists around the world. This month, Bakdrop is showcasing a pair of limited edition Team Fox crew socks with 25 percent of proceeds benefitting MJFF. The Team Fox crew socks will be on sale for a short period of time from March 7 to March 13 — so snag a pair while you can!

New to Team Fox in 2015, Anna Scolaro hosted a ladies lunch and shopping afternoon on February 10 at Dolce & Gabbana in London to support those living with Parkinson’s. Anna’s afternoon of shopping with friends raised $5,000 for Parkinson’s research after Dolce & Gabbana donated 10 percent of the sales made during the event!
