I am raising money for The Anaphylaxis Campaign because I would like to raise awareness.I have multiple allergies and want to help raise money for Anaphylaxis Campaign that supports people with potentially fatal allergies.
My goal is to raise awareness of the severity of allergies. Whether it is an allergy to: insect stings; prescribed drugs; hay-fever; food; or in my case a nut allergy, My aim is to explain what having a allergy means and what you can do to help (especially if you are a non-allergy sufferer).
Allergies are often severely misunderstood. A food allergy is not an intolerance. It does not mean that the individual is fussy, it can be life-threatening. In my case, I have had my nut allergy since I was a child and I will have it for the rest of my life. My allergy is grade 6 the highest grade possible. It is so severe that if I touch, smell or taste nuts, I can have a reaction.
"The ultimate aim is to create a safe environment for all people with allergies by educating the food industry, schools, nurses, colleges, health professionals and other key audiences.The main focus is on medical facts, food labelling, risk reduction and allergen management."

I hope that by reading this page, I have raised awareness of the severity of allergies. Just think, the next time you go out to dinner and a member raises their allergy with the catering staff, a parent informs you that their child, who is attending your child's party, has an allergy or you hear an announcement on a plane asking you to kindly refrain from eating nuts on board - it's not because allergy sufferers are being difficult, we are taking every precaution to prevent a life-threatening situation. please be kind enough to sponsor this great cause.So my aim is to make their future a safer one by raising awareness of anaphylaxis. The anaphylaxis campaign is a wonderful charity that supports children and families dealing with life threatening allergies,all donations will go directly to the Anaphylaxis Campaign.
