MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear Families and Friends:

I am reaching out today for your support.

Our funds are at the lowest level in 25 years.

·         Although we recognize the down-turn in Oil and Gas (all non-profit funding is diminished)…

·         Although the summer months are historically the most impoverished…

·         Although Tourette Texas has added two adjunct fundraisers over the last four years to help meet the needs of those with Tourette in Texas…

Rising costs and demand for services has placed Tourette Association of Texas in a precarious place.  We are in danger of drastically cutting major August/early September programming, including “Back to School” advocacy and In-Service training across the state, as well as summer support group social events and medical/scholarship support.

Fundraising money will start flowing again in mid- to late-September.  However, an entire summer quarter will be lost.

If you have ever considered making a donation to the Tourette Association of Texas, now is the time!

Remember that no amount is too small.  If every family actively served at any given time donated $5.00, we would have $10,000!

Or, even better, if every family we have ever touched donated $5.00, we would have $300,000! 

I am worried…

Lots of love to all –

Mrs. Sheryl

Executive Director, TAA-TX

Over 30 years served
