“We are really grateful to have been chosen as one of the charities to benefit from the sales of the two debut singles by the 9ines. The money raised from downloads of ‘Walk Tall’ and ‘Be Free’ will help the charity continue to provide vital support and services for over half a million people with autism in the UK and their families. Autism is a serious, lifelong and disabling condition and we rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations like Aardvarker to continue making a difference to peoples’ lives.” Alastair Graham, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at the National Autistic Society

“All of us at LAM Action are thrilled that our charity is to benefit from Aardvarker’s project and the “Walk Tall & Be Free” campaign. Thank you all SO much! We’re a very small charity, but we work hard to ensure that all money raised goes directly towards supporting LAM patients and researching possible treatments for this cruel disease.” Gill Hollis Chair, LAM Action LAM Action is the UK charity for patients with Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (also known as LAM), their families, and doctors caring for patients with LAM. LAM is a very rare disease, diagnosed primarily in women of child-bearing age. It mainly affects the lungs, where it causes excessive growth of smooth muscle cells which progressively destroy lung tissue and erode lung function. This makes breathing difficult, often leading to the need for supplemental oxygen and, in some cases, transplantation. LAM Action has two primary aims:
- To provide support and information for LAM patients and their families
- To educate health professionals about LAM and advance research into LAM
Fulfilling these objectives requires funding, so the charity is also involved in raising money to fund its primary objectives. For more information on LAM Action, please see the attached link to their website. www.lamaction.org You can donate directly to LAM Action by clicking the this link
