Free Safety Strategy Videos

Our group recently received this email...

My teenage daughter is allergic to peanuts and tree-nuts, so I know what it's like to be a parent who feels overwhelmed and scared. I share your passion for helping families with food allergies.

I am on a heartfelt mission to help parents feel more confident and less anxious and to make it easier to take more action to better protect their children.

I was wondering if your members would be interested in getting free videos teaching them helpful strategies and practical tips on managing their children’s food allergies and avoiding allergic reactions? If so, I’d love to give you access to 5 free videos containing about 45 minutes of information-packed assistance.

I’m doing this to help celebrate the release of my Protect Your Child From Life-Threatening Allergies system, and to help parents everywhere do more to keep their children safe.

You can tell your members to go to... When they enter their email address into this page they'll get 5 FREE Safety Strategy Videos, about 8-10 minutes each, one per day for five days. There's absolutely zero obligation to buy anything.

It's truly about 45 minutes of FREE practical tips and helpful strategies that parents can apply when eating out, planning for back to school, even at extra-curricular activities, when reading ingredient labels, and more!

If after watching some of my videos, anyone from your group is interested in purchasing the Protect Your Child From Life-Threatening Food Allergies system, I'd love to give you an exciting Introductory Offer For Support Group Discount if you order as a group before August 31st. I am delighted to donate $15 from every purchase to FAAN for all that they have done for advancing food allergy awareness, research and legislation, and for helping my family when my daughter was first diagnosed, almost 14 years ago.

Again, I hope you and your whole group will benefit from the free helpful videos which are my gift to you, without anyone needing to buy anything! I sincerely hope that everyone will learn something to help keep their food-allergic child(ren) safe.

Thanks for your time.

Warm regards,

MedicAlert EMIR

Does your food allergic child have a MedicAlert bracelet? If so, how long has it been since you last updated your child's Emergency Medical Information Record (EMIR)? Have any medications changed? How about dosages and/or frequencies? What about emergency and physician contacts? Any newly developed food, drug, or other allergies? All of this valuable information is stored in your EMIR and can help save your child's life in an emergency. With the new school year fast approaching, now would be a good time to update your child's EMIR because in an anaphylactic emergency every second counts!

2010 Food Allergy Awareness Walk

Hello Members,

Our principal fund raiser for the year is fast approaching. On August 28, 2010, our Food Allergy Awareness Walk will be held at Warner Park in Madison. The goal of the walk is to further the mission of FAAW to raise the awareness of food allergies and to educate about the safe caring of people with food allergies. The walk achieves this goal in two ways. First, the publicity of the event raises awareness and provides information to attendees. Second, the event raises money critical to support the day-to-day efforts to further FAAW’s mission. Our goal this year is to raise $6,000.00 from individual contributions.

The Events page within the Madison of FAAW’s website ( has information about the Walk. Included is a link to our fundraising page at FirstGiving ( FirstGiving is an organization that specifically helps nonprofits raise contributions through events. The FirstGiving site helps you set up a fundraising page or make a contribution to the Walk. FirstGiving also provides helpful hints to successfully raise contributions from families and friends.

As a nonprofit organization, FAAW operates solely off of fundraising and donations. Paying it forward allows us to offer most of our programs free of charge! And, as an all-volunteer organization, you can be assured your entire donation is used for the programs promised to forward our mission.

YOU make a difference! We appreciate all you do to partner with FAAW in working toward our mission.

Epinephrine Key

A new epinephrine auto-injector is being developed called the Epinephrine Key. (view a picture of the device here)

A small epinephrine auto-injector that easily fits in the palm of one's hand, the Epinephrine Key attaches to any keychain. Just like regular keys, the Epinephrine Key is completely portable and always nearby, making it immediately available for emergency administration of epinephrine in the event of a severe allergic reaction.
