Congratulations to our final winners!


Matthew, age 6, is allergic to eggs, chicken, turkey, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish .


 Matthew and his Minion are ready for a safe and successful school year.



Emmie is starting Kinder and is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, flaxseed.


 Emmie is doing so well in her private Christian school thanks to very supportive teachers, administrators, school nurse, and classmates. I was worried about her starting school with all of her allergies but the experience so far has greatly exceeded my expectations and she is having a great start to her school career!

Congratulations to our second winner Evan!  Evan is allergic to peanuts and egg.  He is one of four kids in his class of 18 who live with severe food allergies.


I feel fortunate that his teacher and his school take food allergies seriously and work hard to keep all the students safe without excluding them. Evan’s food allergies never slow him down! - Shaunna (Evan's Mom)



There is still time to enter, so be sure to add your photo!
