June is ICP Awareness Month
The founder of ICP Care lost her first born, Jorden, on June 10, 2003. We have dedicated the entire month of June in memory of Jorden with June 10 as ICP Awareness Day. We honor each baby lost to ICP and support the mothers who have experienced this tragic loss due to Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy.
We also use the month of June to raise awareness and spread education about this high risk pregnancy condition. We are passionate about empowering every woman with ICP so she has the resources she needs to advocate for proper testing, medication and early delivery – to save her baby’s life.

Restaurant Awareness Fundraiser
Another great way to raise awareness and funds for ICP Care is to host a local restaurant awareness fundraiser night. Many restaurants partner with nonprofits to host fundraisers. This is a fun and easy way to raise money for ICP Care while dining with your friends and family. Most restaurants require that you work directly with your local franchise to plan your event.
We have compiled a restaurant fundraising guide with a list of restaurants that accept requests for local fundraisers for 501(c)(3) charitable organizations that you can view here. Many of these restaurants have online request forms to start planning your event. After setting a date with your local restaurant, you can promote the event online using social media and post flyers throughout your community. Although these events can be hosted year round, planning an event around June, which is ICP Awareness Month, is a great time to help raise awareness and funds. If you would like any assistance in planning a local restaurant fundraiser night or have additional questions, please contact us at email@example.com. We can also help connect you with other ICP Care volunteers in your area who are interested in hosting events.

Host an “Itching to Party”!!
Do you enjoy making a difference for the ICP cause that is near & dear to you and your families heart? If you’d like to join the fun, we need your help with the “Itching to Party” Cholestasis of Pregnancy awareness and fundraising campaign! We’re asking you to represent the ICP Warrior by hosting an Itching to Party at your home as an informal and informative way to engage your circle of family, friends, and colleagues. Join the families across the country as they have fun for a great cause!
Your party can be whatever you’d like it to be…a trivia night or BBQ for ICP babies, wine & cheese tasting etc. We’re encouraging our hosts to keep their events simple and personal. To make it as easy as possible for our hosts, we’ve prepared a Itching to Party checklist and host letter that is everything you need to host a party of your own (except food and beverage!). We’d like to schedule these parties from April through June awareness month and beyond. Are you interested in helping this cause that directly impacts moms and babies?
