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.
We have a Pinterest Page! Find the link here.
If You’d Like to Help Sue:
Sue was featured on KTEN News in Texoma helping raise awareness for SMAS. She is traveling to Houston for a drug trial to get medication FDA approved. Please help her out!
Need to sell three more to print
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 are due postmarked by June 15, 2018. If you need one sent to you, email Staci ASAP to Staci.email@example.com
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: firstname.lastname@example.org Applications and all grant information can be found at http://www.smasyndrome.org/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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org with the quantity and sizes and a paypal invoice will be emailed back.
I love when those fighting SMAS let me know they’ve had a story published. Check out this article of Nichole Everett’s dream of competing in the Olympics: https://www.bustle.com/p/chronic-illness-put-my-olympic-dreams-on-hold-heres-what-its-like-to-watch-the-games-in-pyeongchang-8272336
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
