Multiple Sclerosis Research Initiative - The Home T

Multiple Sclerosis Research Initiative

by Ryan Shell

 As you may or may not know, The Home T donates a portion of its profit to multiple sclerosis research, and you can find a little bit more about why we do that here.

The donation is made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and is specifically earmarked for research.

Speaking of research, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has a MS Now campaign that we’d like to share with you by way of a letter they recently sent us.


“The Society carries out its research mission by providing financial support to the brightest scientists and physicians exploring questions underlying MS, and by attracting and training promising young investigators to carry on this vital work. The National MS Society recognizes that, while much progress has been made in research, much more is needed. In response we’ve launched MS NOW (No Opportunity Wasted), a nationwide comprehensive campaign to dramatically accelerate research funding.  The National MS Society will devote $250 million to support our MS NOW research program with a goal to:

  • STOP the disease
  • RESTORE lost function
  • END MS forever

MS NOW encompasses all Society research, including the development of new treatments for people with MS, health care policy, scientific fellowships, rapid response funding, targeted research initiatives, basic and laboratory discovery, and national and international consortium’s and collaborations.  In 2012, $40 million was invested to fund over 325 new and ongoing MS research projects as part of its international effort to move research forward.”

We are so grateful to you and The Home T for your generous gift in support of this critical research campaign to find a cause, new treatments, and a cure for multiple sclerosis.”

There’s no doubt that our efforts are just a drop in the bucket, but with each drop we get closer and closer to a cure and enhancing the lives of millions of people.
