As tulips grow from their bulb to the light and bloom. A tulip stands for friendship, be our friend buy bulbs for Stichting SpierKracht.

The story behind our tulip campaign

In 2008 we first launched this campaign, which was originally the idea of dance class-teacher Leonie. People with muscular dystrophy oftentimes have a less-than-optimal immune system, which is why they sometimes need to stay home for prolonged periods of time, for example when there’s a pathogen on the loose. Our kids also couldn’t go to school for the better part of every winter due to their weakened immune systems. We could go for walks in our neighborhood, and we did this quite often, to look at the beautiful flower bulbs, waiting for spring- just like us. We also sometimes celebrated the beginning of springtime with a party, since it meant that we would have some more freedom again.

The ‘winter’ that lasted for 479 days

Last year, a lot of people with muscular dystrophy had to go into preventive quarantine, as exposure to COVID-19 couldn’t be risked. This quarantine lasted from around march 2020 until this summer. Stichting SpierKracht, in collaboration with Jaap from Bolt-Amsterdam, sent crates with tulip bulbs to these quarantined families, in order to cheer their day up a bit. We got a lot of positive reactions and beautiful pictures of the tulip bulbs flourishing, and therefore decided to run another tulip campaign this year, so we can fundraise to finance treatment for people with LGMD. As of this very moment when we’re writing this article, 5 treatments for LGMD are being developed, with good results so far. We’re in a hurry to get these treatments developed further and launched on the market, so that treatment can become available for every patient as soon as possible.

Donations for a great cause

With each order of these tulip bulbs provides for a donation of €15,- for Stichting SpierKracht, and as a special promotion you don’t have to pay for the shipping costs. The crates can be shipped throughout Europe.
This campaign will start on September 30th 2021, which is Limb Girdle Awareness day.
