Get Your 'Give' On!  What?!?  

So glad you asked!  Tuesday, December 3rd, is the 2nd Annual Giving Tuesday to Put the Focus Back on Giving this Holiday Season.

On #GivingTuesday – following Black Friday and Cyber Monday – people worldwide will get together online and in-person to kick off the holiday season with a day dedicated to giving back.  Individuals will start off the holiday season and give back to the causes they care about most.

It's your opportunity to give to Arizona Food Allergy!  We are seeking tax deductible contributions in any amount.

Why care?  When someone has a food allergy, their quality of life is compromised.  Maybe you know someone in this situation.  Or, what if you became allergic someday?  Wouldn't you want resources to help you?  My food allergies began in my adult years, and AFAA has been there with education, support, advocacy and research to help me and my family.  

The Arizona Food Allergy (AFAA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by food allergy and anaphylaxis in the State of Arizona.  It is their goal to bring awareness, understanding, and safety within families and communities by providing educational resources, personal networking experiences, opportunities for community involvement, and funding for research.  We depend on public donations for these programs.

Here's how to Get Your 'GIVE' ON:    

DONATE directly AFAA through our secure PayPal account

How is your gift used?  100% goes to fund programs in local Arizona communities and impacts the lives of those with food allergy and anaphylaxis - as we are a 100% volunteer run organization.  One member states, "AFAA has really helped me to know that I'm not the only one out there with so many severe food allergies. When I first was diagnosed, I went into a depression because there were so many foods I love that I had to take out of my diet.  AFAA members have been so supportive and helped with ideas to replace foods without avoiding social situations".    

- Actual cost ONE child food free AFAA Easter Egg Hunt or Halloween Trunk-or-Treat =  $20. Family pays $0 as these events are paid in full with funds raised through donations to our Zoo Walks.

- Actual cost ONE child - Summer Camp Ye bik'ehgo = $300. Family pays only $45. This amount is offset dramatically with funds raised through donations to our Zoo Walks.
