You arrived on this forum looking for support and information. You come back because you found them.

Now, we need you to help US help you, and other concerned families around the world. We don't ask you for your help often, but it means SO MUCH.

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday. Every dollar, every pound, every yen we raise, even if one at a time, puts us in the running to be awarded even more by Newman's Own Foundation.

We don't accept donations from any organization that might be selling you services or marketing to you, like other organizations do. We don't use your donations to fund an office or nice pens or fancy posters. We use it to make this forum and our website full of information and our printed resources and our outreach to policymakers and treatment providers and the media to improve things for families like all of ours.

So if you're giving any donations for Giving Tuesday, and we know you are because you are very nice people, consider giving ANY amount to F.E.A.S.T. The awards are not just to the highest earners but to those with the most loyal, the most small donors, the most steady communities, too. Help us win some funds, and help us pay the bills!!

Oh, and see the videos on that page, in the "UPDATES" of other families like yours around the world. They tell the story very movinginly. There's a video from me, too, from my desk where I'm typing this, and the washer and dryer behind me! We're families just like you: join the effort!

YAY Newman's Own, and YAY F.E.A.S.T. families!!!!


F.E.A.S.T. is giving families information and inspiration 365 days a year. Tomorrow, on we need you to give a bit back!
