Holiday Help for Lyme Patients 2017
Well that time of year is coming again! And as we all love the holidays, it is also an especially hard time for people who are chronically ill. We are trying to collect a list of groups or foundations who will be helping Lyme patients this year for the holidays. If you have a group, foundation or page that is please let us know so we can add you to the list!
Watch for the LymeCares 2nd Annual Winter Holiday Giveaway! This year, LymeCares will send holiday care packages and gifts to more than 50 Lyme patients around the U.S. Follow the LymeCares Facebook page here. If you’d like to donate to LymeCares, please contact Sheila Bush here: https://www.facebook.com/Breezy300
LymeCares is dedicated to spreading hope to the members of the Lyme community while raising public awareness about tick-borne illness. LymeCares works to educate conscientious businesses about Lyme disease and its impact on Lyme patients while offering these businesses the opportunity to donate their excellent products as a show of support for those suffering. LymeCares then forwards the products directly to Lyme patients in need via care packages. More than just a box of goodies, these care packages lift spirits, impart much-needed hope, and remind Lyme patients that they are not alone. Like their page here.
Lyme Warrior has about 50 care boxes to send out this Christmas but slots are filling up fast so check it out! This is a great place to donate to also! Check out how to get on the list for a Smile Box or how to donate to help Lyme Warrior get more Smile Boxes here!
Angle Rice has made this page for cards she makes and sends out for the holiday season and throughout the year. Here is her mission statement:
“I started Pay It Forward Postcards as a way to help support fellow patients who lived all over the world and needed encouragement and kindness as they were in a fight for their health. I now extend this service to anyone needing support in a time of need or crisis. I make homemade cards. Each one is unique, a work of art, and tailored to each persons need. My goal is to bring a smile to their face in a dark time.”
The Lyme Raffle is is open all year. it is a page on Facebook that raffles off items randomly throughout the year that get donated from authors, crafters or anyone who has anything to donate. There will be some fun raffles in there this Holiday Season so join the page and check it out! All you have to do is join the page, and if you see something you would like to win, write a comment below the post and wait to see if your name gets drawn! If you would like to donate something you can contact me on Facebook.
