There was excitement as we opened our first commission check for just over $30 at the end of the year. Thanks to your purchases through the Living Well Gear Shop, we were able to make our first contributions to both CURE and the Epilepsy Foundation of America.
To kick off 2012, contributions were made using the money earned via the Living Well Gear Shop. I’ve made a $25 contribution CURE to help pay for the research that will get us a bit closer to a cure. A $25 contribution was also made to the Epilepsy Foundation because awareness is still needed.
It’s worth noting that although we receive a very small percentage of the sales from Cafe Press, 100% of the dollars we receive go toward epilepsy awareness and epilepsy research.
To give directly to either of these organizations you can visit the Give Today page.
