Now is The Perfect Time

Now that the bulk of the holiday frenzy has died down, it’s time to give back. There are still a few days left to make a donation to your favorite food allergy charity before the end of the year.

If you’re looking for inspiration, here are a few non-profit organizations and causes you might consider:

KFA (Kids with Food Allergies Foundation
): This organization is one I am very close to as a member of the Board of Directors. KFA’s mission is focused on helping families manage food allergies, education, and keeping children safe. You can get double bang for you buck by donating here, as the board of directors has pledged to match donations between now and the end of the year.

APFED (American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders)
is focused on helping families with EE/EoE and other eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders, as well as research.

FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education): This organization formed by the merger between FAAN (Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network) and FAI (Food Allergy Initiative) has announced that it will focus on research and education as its primary mission.

Heroes for Life at Lurie’s Children’s Hospital: Donations to this cause will help fund food allergy research. And with a donation of $250 or more you may be eligible to receive a signed copy of my book.

Whether or not you are able to contribute to any of these fabulous causes, your participation in this community is appreciated.
