Thanks to all who voted for the charity to support in May 2017.
The NZ charity with the most votes from the 4good community in May is………
Tourette’s Association New Zealand
It was first recognised as a disorder in 1883 by French neurologist Georges Gilles de la Tourette.
It is estimated that one in a hundred people are born with Tourette Syndrome (TS) although only a small number of these people will ever be diagnosed; the majority will have tics that are so mild that they may not even be aware that they have the disorder.
Tourette Syndrome is a paediatric disorder and for a formal diagnosis to be given, both sets of tics need to occur concurrently before the age of 18 – although diagnosis may not be made until adulthood.
Congratulations and keep up the great work you do!
Have a great month everyone, June’s votes will be up shortly!
Be safe and remember to not only be good but also give 4good!
From the 4Good team.
