Social Butterflies Foundation is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping those battling with lupus and fibromyalgia, as well as their families and caregivers. The mission of the Social Butterflies Foundation is to provide education, support services, advocacy, and encouragement to empower and uplift those living with lupus and fibromyalgia in an effort to help them and their families face the challenges of these debilitating illnesses that receive little to no attention yet devastate so many lives. Our vision is to make these invisible illnesses visible.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack the body's organs. In severe cases, organ damage and failure can occur. Lupus does not discriminate affecting people of all races and ethnic groups. Over 90 percent of people with lupus are women between the ages of 15 and 45. Men and young men have lupus too. African American women are three times as likely to get it than Caucasian women. Lupus complications can lead to death, primarily from an organ failure.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Fibromyalgia occurs in men and children of all ethnic groups. However, 75-90percent of the people who have FM are women. Although it is not life threatening, it is life altering.

In order to help further raise awareness for these two cruel illnesses, Social Butterflies Foundation has launched our DMV License Plate initiative. Currently, there is not a specialty plate for lupus nor fibromyalgia. Having a plate will help bring these debilitating illnesses to the forefront by raising awareness and making them visible. It will also show survivors that they are not alone in this fight. We need 450 pre-purchased plates for both the lupus and fibromyalgia specialty plates. We need your help to make the specialty plates possible by you pre-purchasing your plate. Together we WILL make these invisible illnesses VISIBLE!

The specialty plates cost $25 (+ $1 online processing fee) for non personalized plates and $35 (+ $1 online processing fee) for personalized plates.

THE PROCESSING FEE IS NOT BEING CHARGED BY DMV, IS WHOLLY UNRELATED TO DMV, AND WILL NOT BE REFUNDABLE SHOULD THE SPECIAL PLATE NOT BE ISSUED.
