Closer to Auction Time

We are currently a month and half out from our online auction and will be posting more information as we get closer. I’d like to take a moment to thank all of our donors and will get our donor page updated shortly. My office nook is overflowing with donated items. We have our Ebay account set up and will be opening the facebook group soon so everyone can invite friends and family.

New T-shirt Design

Good morning everyone! We have been a little behind this year with getting t-shirt designs made. We finally have one completed, another one in the works, and one getting ready to start designing. Please share the link with friends and family asking them to consider purchasing one. There are two benefits to purchasing a shirt. The first being that they are helping us raise awareness for this rare syndrome. The second, every purchase helps fund our SMAS grants fund which allows us to assist those with superior mesenteric artery syndrome.

Second Quarter Grants

The SMAS Nonprofit offers Grants to ANYONE who is a US resident, is insured, uninsured, employed, unemployed, on disability, food stamps, living alone, with family, an adult, or a child. The only requirement we have is that your Family Income is poverty level X 300%. The guildelines can be found on the website. We encourage you to apply even if you fall outside these guidelines because we may have funds to give to applicants that apply if there aren’t many in any one quarter. And please don’t think you aren’t worthy or someone else needs it more. We work very hard to raise money to help, and if we can’t give this money out, we aren’t achieving the goals of the Nonprofit! You can contact me at: staci.smas.npo@gmail.com Applications and all grant information can be found at http://www.smasyndrome.org/grants

Second Quarter Grants

We are currently accepting grants for the second quarter of 2018. The application is uploaded on our grants page, but if you cannot open or print it please email us at staci.smas.npo@gmail.com and one will be mailed out to you. Please remember, if it is an emergency such as needing an immediate surgery then send off your application as soon as it is completed.

Our “Store” has undergone a little update and may continue to be updated in the near future. For now, you must select individual sizes and go through paypal before adding more items. If you’d like to pay only once for multiple items please email us at smasras@gmail.com with the quantity and sizes and a paypal invoice will be emailed back.

Tube accessories

Many people with SMAS have feeding tubes. Sue Kibby suffers from SMAS and has a feeding tube. She makes products to make your tube not only more comfortable, but stylish. She donates a portion of proceeds to the nonprofit. We’d like to thank her for helping out the nonprofit. Please check out her Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/churchmousegifts/listing/578219288/handmade-feeding-tube-pads?utm_source=Copy&utm_medium=ListingManager&utm_campaign=Share&utm_term=so.lmsm&share_time=1517954033798
