Grant Deadline, New Article, Twitter, Tshirts, and Awareness Photos!

4th Quarter Applications are due in! Must be postmarked by Dec 15, 2017. Please email questions to staci.smas.npo@gmail.com

We just added a new article on our “Resources” tab, but it can also be viewed from the link below.

This research article would be good to download and take along with you to doctor appointments to share with your doctor if you are not getting the care that you need. It describes the tests that diagnose SMAS, treatment approach, and reason to act quickly.

We also have a twitter page up and going. www.twitter.com/smasras

Pictures to be included in this year’s Awareness video are due by Dec 15! email them to smasvoices@gmail.com

 

GIVING TUESDAY IS HERE!!!

Our operating costs are only $300 a year which means the majority of funds raised goes to helping those with SMAS. At 8am EST donations are being matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit. Once the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has matched 2 million dollars then no more matching occurs. Please ask your friends and family to consider donating to our little nonprofit. The majority of money raised every year comes from today so please help. The link is posted just below!!

Giving Tuesday

On Giving Tuesday the Bill Gates Foundation matches donations made up to $2 million. We will be posting our fundraiser Tuesday morning. Please ask your friends and family to consider donating $5. Last year we raised just over $1000. For our little nonprofit that provided two full grants. We will post the link once it is ready.

Awareness Day Pictures needed!

Every year on January 28th the SMAS community celebrates Awareness Day. This year we will be creating a video of photos featuring those fighting and surviving SMAS.

If you suffer from SMAS or have beaten SMAS please send in a photo. I️ want to erase the 500 number and show that there are thousands living and fighting with SMAS. I’m tired of doctors telling people it’s in their head or they have an eating disorder or even that SMAS isn’t real! Help us raise awareness and send in a photo to smasvoices@gmail.com Deadline DEC 15!

Photo can be a normal photo of you, one showing scars or feeding tubes, whatever you’d like. If you want your name included, please state so in the email.

Also, if your Warrior passed away, we are doing a remembrance portion of the video and would like to honor your loved one.

Please help us make our video amazing.

Successful Campaign

Thank you to everyone that purchased a SMAS product through teespring. We raised $322 for the nonprofit. If you reserved a toddler shirt, please be aware that your card will not be charged since we did not meet the minimum.

Shirts can still be reserved at: www.teespring.com/fightsmas

If enough shirts are reserved, we can reopen the campaign.

We appreciate those who supported and shared our campaign link!!!

Exciting News

The nonprofit is excited to announce that we gave out two grants in our third quarter! We are still looking for someone who can help us design a t-shirt for our next campaign. The design is simple, but I need someone who can put it to paper. Meanwhile, bracelets and decals are still available which help fund our grants. Please check them out on our Store tab. 4th quarter applications are now being accepted.
