There are four primary fundraising campaigns you can take part in each year to help Team Costello achieve its mission. Or, you can let your imagination run wild and create an event of your own to raise awareness and funds for the Costello Syndrome Family Network.
Costello Syndrome Awareness Day – January 27th
In January, we bring awareness to Costello syndrome by selling Costello Syndrome Awareness T-shirts. (Insert link) January 27 was selected as Costello Syndrome Awareness Day to honor the birthday of Dr. Jack Costello who first identified Costello Syndrome. We invite families worldwide to celebrate with us.
We also have a promotional package that includes a sample press release, Facebook picture frame, sample poster with room for your own child’s picture.
Share the Love – February
Share the Love is an online campaign based on the day dedicated to love; Valentine’s Day. Create a fundraising page through FirstGiving or on Facebook and share your story of love. Anyone impacted by Costello syndrome is encouraged to take part. Join us in a show of force – the force of love in support of those with Costello syndrome.

This is a partnership with The Sheets Lady to purchase or sell high-quality sheets in time for Christmas gift giving. CSFN receives 25% of the proceeds for sheets sales. Have friends or family purchase sheets on https://sheetslady.com/ and enter Costello Syndrome Family Network as the fundraiser.
#GivingTuesday – November/December
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is a day of charitable giving. Utilizing Facebook, anyone can start a fundraiser for Costello Syndrome Family Network or create one of your own using this day as a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media.
