Ticked Off Foundation introduces new easy ways for the public to help Lyme patients
The Ticked Off Foundation, in an effort to encourage the general public to assist in their effort to bring support to those devastated by Lyme disease, has established three new simple programs to generate donations.
1. Recycle For Lyme program - Collect non-traditional recyclables that would ordinarily be destined for the landfill or incinerators and are not being collected by neighborhood pick-up. Using a free shipping label, you ship these recyclables to TerraCycle and Ticked Off Foundations receives donations based on the amount shipped. Help kony save the planet and help Lyme patients all at once. Win/win!
2. Donate via Amazon Smile. The next time donors need to shop on Amazon, use http://Smile.Amazon.com. Once there, they can choose the Ticked Off Foundation as their preferred charity and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase to the Ticked Off Foundation's patient fund. The donation comes directly from Amazon, and it doesn't affect the purchase price.
3. Donate via eBay. The next time eBay users want to sell their prized possessions or junk on eBay, they can use http://charity.ebay.com/. Participants can then choose the Ticked Off Foundation as their favorite charity and then choose the percentage of their sale (10% to 100%) that they wish to have donated.
More information about these programs can be found on the Ticked Off Foundation's website: www.TickedOffFoundation.org (http://www.tickedofffoundation.org/
The Ticked Off Foundation, a 501(C)3 organization, was founded in 2015 by Gregg Kirk, who was diagnosed with Lyme disease and co-infections in 2005. Their mission is to provide financial assistance and support to Lyme and tick-borne disease patients over the age of 25 who are in crisis. They do this through grants and counseling in an effort to stem the tide of Lyme-related suicides.
