Forum Community,

We don't bug you often for support, but every once in a while we like to let you know that this forum and all our services do have modest costs to provide, and we would love to do MORE. Families around the world tell us they need more resources, more action, better treatment quality and availability. Families tell us they need someone to call, to answer questions, to help them find resources.

On this forum, we connect parents with other parents, and the power of connection and information is invaluable. We've been doing it for over a decade, and going strong.

We also, at F.E.A.S.T, offer access to a fellow parent through email, phone, and live chat support. We want to keep that available and expand it. For that, we need this community's support. EVERY BIT COUNTS. If you have a one-time amount you can spare, in any currency, we can add it to the fund and that adds up. If you can throw us an amount monthly, we can make that easy as well.

In this community we pay it forward. We are "Here Because We've BEEN there." Be there for the next parent who reaches out for help, and let them find a live person who gets it who is there with a kind word and listening ear.

Donate to support our Parent Support Lines so we can be there for any family, anywhere. Be the hero you wanted to be there for you when you needed it: contribute today to F.E.A.S.T's Parent Support.

Our Parent Support Lines cost $16,400 per year. We are raising funds to cover the next 12 months of this service.
