Charity Update

Hi guys,

Just a quick post to update you on the progress of the Gastroparesis charity I started. Many of my Facebook and twitter followers get regular updates on what we have been doing but for those new to the page here's where to find us and how you can help.

The charity is called GIFT standing for : Gastroparesis &Intestinal Failure Trust

You can find us at: www.giftukblog.blogspot.com please take a look at our fundraising page where you can earn crucial donations for GIFT without it costing you a penny extra by registering with Easyfundraising (direct link available).

The support group currently runs through Facebook and can be found at: www.facebook.com/groups/giftuk

And finally our awareness campaign can be found at: www.facebook.com/giftuk

We have had some excellent feedback from our existing group members and hope to expand the support network over the coming year. We are currently building a database of members and invite anyone in the UK to come and join us in making a change. If you would like to be added to the database please email the GIFT team at: giftukawareness@gmail.com

We are currently looking to develop relationships with healthcare professionals with an interest in motility disorders. If you work in healthcare and would like to help in some way please don't hesitate to contact us! We are especially interested in liaising with Dietitians, General practitioners and Researchers.

We have some great fundraising activities planned for this summer with some crazy people prepared
to jump out of a plane for their loved one! If you would like to hold a fundraising event of your own please contact us and we can provide posters, collection boxes, sponsorship forms and information leaflets. We can also supply awareness bracelets for small fundraising events. Photographs available on our blog.

Finally, can I please ask....share this among family, friends and anyone who will listen so we can start making a real difference to people's lives!

All proceeds go directly to helping those who's lives have been effected by Gastroparesis and intestinal failure.
