Christmas Cards
Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance have just launched their annual Christmas cards. As usual they have a varied selection and include a little comedy this year. They are sold in packs of 15 for €8. There are no administrative costs courtesy of the many outlets who them so for every pack sold €5 goes directly to research.
