(WASHINGTON, DC - November 7, 2014) -- Kids With Food Allergies (KFA), a

division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), announced

today that it has been honored with a prestigious award by GreatNonprofits,

the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.


"We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2014 Nonprofit," says Lynda

Mitchell, a Vice President at AAFA and Founder of KFA. "We are proud of our

accomplishments this year focused on keeping children with food allergies

safe and healthy."


The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award was based on the large number of positive

reviews that KFA received - reviews written by volunteers, donors and

partners. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit, such

as, "The support and resources at KFA make it possible to be a successful

parent of a kid with food allergies. Sharing the burden with other families

makes it easier to deal with the day-to-day realities. I'm so grateful for

KFA in my life."


While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, KFA was part of

the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, KFA will be added

to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide - an interactive guide to top

nonprofits. Look for the guide near the holiday season.


"Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,"

said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "People with direct experience with

KFA have voted that the organization is making a real difference."


Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that

this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and

other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is

a form of recognition by the community.
