Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics

Dear Danielle,

Thank you for your email and the link to your wonderful project. I am
curious as to how you selected our organization to answer this question.

At first glance, a one-time gift of $2.00 seems to vaporize in today's
slippery economy where keeping nonprofit doors open require jumping
monumental hoops. In truth, every penny counts! And on a daily basis, we
give away free services and advocate for families whose faces we'll
never see.

But to answer your question: It is often not the value of the dollar but
the manner in which the dollar is given that reveals its true potential
for change. In our experience, I can tell you that $1.00 and a short
note sent by one of our members who is mentally challenged has inspired
and motivated all of us at Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of
Asthmatics and visitors to our office for several years. We framed the
letter and the dollar and it hangs on our wall in the office as a
reminder that whatever hurdles we may have, we are not alone and neither
are the people we love to serve.
