New to Epilepsy - Here to support

Sun, 02/04/2018 - 15:12
Hi all. I am new to the forum, here to learn more about research, advocacy, and education. I am part owner of a CBD company that instituted a system whereby every sale triggers a $1 donation to a research organization of the customer’s choice. Epilepsy was the first cause selected to receive donations. We want to learn more about epilepsy, find more ways to help, and keep up to date on research. We also hope to participate, as a company, in fundraisers beyond our sales, and we hope this forum will help us find more opportunities to be active in the community. Stay Strong!!!!!!


Thanks for the feedback

Thanks for the feedback Michael. We've done some research and actually written some blogs about awareness related to Epilepsy with our novice understanding. Our goal here is not to find help for our company, but to find out more about Epilepsy and seek better ways for us to help. Our system allows our customers t decide where our donation goes, and this community (Epilepsy Foundation) is one of the recipient options. We know we can help, but we hope it makes a difference.

Thanks just_joe. We've

Thanks just_joe. We've actually spoken with Epilepsy Foundation before our new site launched to find the best way for us to donate. At each transaction, our customers can choose from 4 foundations that we will donate too at the end of each month. Epilepsy Foundation was one that we chose to be a recipient. They were very pleasant to speak with, which I can say wasn't the response from every organization we reached out to. Currently we are looking for a 5k to participate in, in the Denver area, that the proceeds with benefit Epilepsy awareness and research. If you hear of one, please advise.

One of the issues is it is not approved in some states so heck with the EFA to find out what needs to be done there and the testing that they have to do to get it approved
