Gluten Intolerance Group of Central Arkansas
Happy New Year GIGCA folks!
So that we may continue to reach out and help gluten intolerant people and educate the general public, I am writing to ask for GIGCA 2012 donations*.
Here are some GIGCA fund uses from 2011:
Please share in helping us to continue to reach gluten intolerant people in Arkansas and make a difference in all our lives. The recommended donation amount is $20.00. Think of GIGCA as your favorite charity! (The donation is tax deductible.) Please make payment to GIGCA and send donations to:
11 Berwyn Drive
Little Rock, AR 72227
Or, if you attend the February 2012 meeting, you may donate at that time, or any time during the year. We would like to mention donors in our monthly newsletter. If you wish to give an anonymous donation, please denote ‘anonymous donation’ on your check.
Also, please consider joining the national organization, Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), of which GIGCA is a local branch; member cost is $35.00. GIG acts on behalf of all gluten intolerant people in the United States. GIG was crucial in getting the Food Allergen and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) defined and passed. Their many works are extremely important and include the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) for products, Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program (GFRAP) for restaurants, and gluten free awareness in schools, hospitals, and nursing homes. Visit GIG’s website and learn more: www.gluten.net
Joining GIG** is a separate action from donating to GIGCA. GIGCA does not receive funds from GIG.
*All donations to GIGCA are tax deductible.
**GIG membership: $20.00 of the $35.00 membership fee is tax deductible.
