The Cause

Young friends Noah Keeley and Tyler & Sammy Rippole are once again on a mission to help bring healing and hope for kids with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a group of devastating and life threatening genetic skin disorders that affect children from birth.  100% of the money raised through this raffle will benefit the EB Research Partnership, the largest non-profit dedicated to funding research aimed at treating and curing EB.  EBRP is dedicated to finding a cure to this debilitating disease that affects an estimated 30,000 individuals in the U.S. 

The boys chose to raise money for EB because the intensity of the condition and its impact on kids just like them deeply moves their hearts.   Over the last five years, Noah, Tyler, and Sammy have personally met many young kids who are battling with EB every day.  They are truly inspired by their courage, strength, and perseverance. 

Today, there is no cure for EB.  Please watch this emotional video: http://www.crowdrise.com/BelieveInMiracles to get a sense of the intensity of EB and the impact it has on families that are affected by it.   A cure for EB is within reach, and clinical studies are being conducted at several prestigious research programs including Stanford, Columbia, and Tufts.  The only things standing in the way of curing EB for this generation of young children are money and time.  You can make a difference!
 

The Prize

Your donations will enter you into a raffle to win exceptional prizes, especially for fans of music and baseball, two of the boys’ passions. 

Every $25 you donate will enter you into the raffle.  ($100 counts as four entries, $500 counts as 20 entries, and $1,000 counts as 40 entries!)

The donated prizes include:
  • Two (2) tickets each to see Pearl Jam play two sold-out Wrigley Field shows: Saturday, August 18th and Monday, August 20th, 2018;
  • $2,000 cash to cover your travel expenses for your weekend in Chicago;
  • Autographed concert poster from Eddie Vedder’s 2014 solo concert with Glen Hansard in Sydney, Australia (signed by Eddie Vedder for this cause!); and
  • Men’s and women’s #21 t-shirts from the Roberto Clemente Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.

All you have to do is donate!  The contest ends opens today at 2PM EST and closes on July 31st.

We Believe in Miracles.  With your help, we can cure EB once and for all.  Thank you for joining us!!!!

With love,

Noah, Tyler, and Sammy

100% of the proceeds will benefit EB Research Partnership, however neither EB Research Partnership or Pearl Jam are conducting the campaign. This is a "kid-run" campaign.

    Really great work you're doing! My wife and I were blown away in Quebec City seeing Noah just absolutely shred on Sad! Great to see him, Sammy, Tyler, and their families making such a meaningful difference. Much love to Casey, Patterson, Sebastian, Mikey, Jackson, and everyone else battling EB on a daily basis. I'm going over to the crowd rise site now to donate. I don't have a lot of money, but I'd prefer to spend a night at home this weekend, knowing that the money I saved by doing so is going to a better place. I'd encourage everyone else here to spread the word to friends and family. Not out of a desire to win prizes, but rather out of hope to make a difference in these children's lives.

    Much love and respect from me and my family,

    Meet Joe M.  He won this same raffle in 2016 and had this to say:
    "EB is genetic disorder that affects 1 out of 50,000 births each year.  While this may not seem like many, it is something that can be very painful for those with EB & could lead lead to early death. Through Tyler, Sammy, and Noah’s efforts, they were able to raise money that went towards the search for a cure. They were able to do this by following the lead of their favorite band, Pearl Jam. Just wanted to take a minute to encourage you to make a donation to this cause.  Who knows,  you may end up at Wrigley like I did in 2016. Keep the wave rolling!"

    In loving memory of "Super" Gabe. We can't comprehend how painful it was for his dad to share this video after his son lost his battle with EB last year. An amazing act of courage to raise awareness. Gabe's last wish was for EB to be cured. Please make his wish come true. www.crowdrise.com/BelieveInMiracles

    Noah was so moved by the love the band gave him in Quebec City that he wanted to pay it forward and help a cause the band supports.  Once he learned about the intensity of EB and the affect it has on young kids, he knew he wanted to help.  He wants to help his friends, and you can help too! www.crowdrise.com/BelieveInMiracles
