I’m very excited to report that my campaign to provide free anaphylaxis first aid training to teachers and care givers raised enough funds to train 99 individuals in anaphylaxis first aid through my online course at epipentraining.com!* Donors to the campaign could select perks that include training codes that they can use themselves or give to others. In total, 50 training codes will be given out to donors.
Thank you very much to each donor for your support! Thank you as well to everyone who appeared in the campaign video. It truly means the world to me that you shared my vision.
A special thank you goes to Selena Bluntzer of Amazing & Atopic and Jennifer Roberge of The Eczema Company for sharing the campaign more than any other people. I am also grateful to Selena for being inspired at the close of the campaign to create the image below. The yellow caduceus in the center is the symbol of my training company, EpiCenter Medical, and the training spreads out from me to many and then they become the center as they share the training with others, or protect others with the training they’ve received.
It’s now time to set up the course codes for donors and begin to allocate the free training to teachers and care givers. If you would like your school or child care to be considered, please send the decision maker’s contact information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again everyone!
* Indiegogo will take 9% of the $2,418 sum we raised, resulting in a net amount of $2,200. As part of our campaign promise, we pledged to donate 10% to be shared by FARE, Anaphylaxis Canada, and Kids With Food Allergies, so the sum of $220 will be distributed to them. This leaves a net amount of $1,980 to fund free training and every $20 trains one teacher or care giver, meaning we can train 99 individuals because of the generosity of our donors.
