Volunteers are the heart of CARF. There are a variety of ways you can further your involvement with our organization and the cicatricial alopecia community.
- Fundraise. There are many creative ways that you can raise much needed funds for the organization. Whether you host a grassroots event or create a personalized donation page, you are helping to further our mission while raising awareness of these rare disorders. To make the fundraising process even easier, you’ll have a CARF staff person there to help you every step of the way. Contact email@example.com to start fundraising today.
- Connect with others. Help us welcome newly diagnosed and new members to our organization. You can help plan a support group meeting in your hometown or become a moderator of one of our online communities. Do you want to become a Patient Outreach Volunteer? There are many ways that you can guide patients through this time of uncertainty.
- Inspire Others. We know that many patients with cicatricial alopecia come and visit our website immediately after they receive their diagnosis. We strongly believe that in addition to receiving accurate medical information, they need to read stories about people coping and living with their diagnosis. By sharing your story, you can help inspire and encourage others. Click here to read other Member’s Stories and submit your own.
- Share Your Skills. Are you a graphic designer or accountant? Do you enjoy writing? Are you in marketing or public relations? Do you have a social work, counseling or medical background? There are many ways you can share your professional skills with CARF. Volunteer your skills to better serve our community as we further develop new content for the CARF website, newsletter and social media sites.
Are you a medical professional who treats patients with cicatricial alopecia? Want to get further involved with the CARF community? There are many ways you can volunteer your expertise from participating on our Medical & Scientific Advisory Committee or one of our working groups. Please contact the CARF office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our CARF office is very small, but thanks to the willingness and generosity of our volunteers, we can expand our reach in the cicatricial alopecia community.
