IfOnly, a platform that delivers extraordinary experiences for good, has partnered with The Charlotte and Gwenyth Gray Foundation to help with their goal of raising 10 million dollars.
The money will be used to fund urgent medical research needed to save the lives of film producer Gordon Gray’s two young daughters, and others who are battling Batten disease. To support the cause, IfOnly and the Gray Foundation have tapped their talented rosters of luminaries across multiple disciplines to create a curated shop of unique experiences with proceeds going to find a treatment and cure for this rare disease.
Batten disease is a fatal, genetically inherited disorder of the nervous system that typically begins in childhood. The average lifespan for a child suffering from the disease is 6 to 12 years old. Due to its rarity, solutions for this presently incurable and fatal disease have received minimal research, focus and funding.
Through the Cure Batten shop, the Grays have the opportunity to educate millions about the fatal disease and reach a wide audience to join in helping to save their two daughters and other innocent children suffering from this disease. The Cure Batten shop features incredible experiences including set visits, behind-the-scenes access, and private screenings, with new experiences launching weekly.
Experiences range from set visits with stars like Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg on their latest blockbuster films to a private screening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” complete with a private tour of Lucasfilm. Featured film experiences include a first glance of Finding Dory with director Andrew Stanton and a tour of the Pixar Animation studio; tickets to attend the premiere of the final Hunger Games film including a photo with Liam Hemsworth; or a once-in-a-lifetime dream experience for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean film.
IfOnly has established itself as a destination for members to purchase coveted experiences that amaze and inspire while being equally dedicated to helping others in need. By melding these unique experiences with worthy causes, IfOnly has the ability to turn consumers into benefactors. In partnering with IfOnly, The Charlotte and Gwenyth Gray Foundation will acquire additional funds desperately needed to accelerate life-saving research.
