pThis also was posted in another Board (Main) but I'll post it again here to save the trouble of flipping back to read it./p
pI was just passing by someone's desk at work and they had phamplet on display on how to get (buy) a pink bow pin to show support for breast cancer. I used to see red ones around for AIDS awareness.br /
Does something like that exist for food allergies (not a bow pin buy something equiv)? Why not create a different colored bow pin to promote/show support for food allergy awareness? I say make it in the shapebr /
of the traditional bow because everyone knows the intent of these is to show support both on a financial and emotional level. /p
pVic had suggested that FAAN has a PAL pin already and that has generated some questions for him./p
pI guess the reason I suggested the bow is because they already have some, well, inherent meaning..."I support " which would prompt questions such as whatbr /
the color stood for. I admit I've never seenbr /
the FAAN pins but I am wondering if theybr /
would promote as much activity. Like, I have pins from work that I wear on occasion. Usually there is an acronym on them yet no one has ever asked me what it means and they are not self-explanatory./p
pCindy suggested presenting the idea to FAAN./p
pFirst, what do you think of the idea? Any comments? Is this FAAN right place? Any other places?/p

My husband always brings shirts home from his employer. One shirt in particular has a special quote, which I am sometimes asked to explain when I am working out at the gym. People do read what's on our shirts. Now I want to get some type of peanut allergy t-shirt to wear so people can ask me about that too. Someone had a good idea for a t-shirt in the Products for Our Community Section. I'd like to borrow that idea and slap it on my back. Heck, I'll wear it everywhere I can--the store, beach, you name it!

we need more media coverage if oprah or some popular show did a show about food allergies and gave good information it would make a lot of mothers aware!!

I wrote to Martha Stewart just yesterday and asked her to consider marking food with nuts by garnishing the top or side with nuts as a warning. I also asked her to consider mentioning nut allergies on her show. She made stuffed sweet potatoes, with a layer of pecans and then a topping of melted marshmallows. My son, who's allergic to both peanuts and tree nuts, whould never have been able to guess there were pecans underneath until it was too late.
