Thank you to everyone who has donated to FAN’s budget for 2016.
We encourage those who haven’t contributed to consider a donation, however small. We truly need each other to end fluoridation.
The donations we recieved enabled us to reach $108,637 from 449 donors (8am Dec 30). This means we are just 51 donors away from a pledge of $2,000 and $1,363 away from another pledge for $10,000. So today - with your help - we could see a large leap in our total (see donation, premium and competition details below). The whole FAN team is keeping our collective fingers crossed!
The good news is that Michael is taking over as FAN director and he will bring with him legal expertise, a deep knowledge of the scientific literature on fluoride that few anywhere can match and a desire to collaborate with creative individuals to spread the message to end fluoridation.
A New PSA on Dental FluorosisFAN is releasing a new Public Service Announcement today on Dental Fluorosis and we hope you will share it on your social media. This is the third PSA that FAN has released this week. Here are the links:
FAN’s goal is to protect our children from a lifetime of exposure to a neurotoxic and endocrine disrupting chemical (literally from womb to grave) with every glass of water they drink, every meal they eat and every bath and shower they take.
We need your help to craft cost-effective communication methods that can get this message to them. Most people do not know that fluoride is neurotoxic or an endocrine disruptor because the media is not informing them, but that situation may be beginning to change. Please note the story that appeared in the UK newspaper The Guardian on Christmas Day, and a version in the UK Daily Mail.
Please consider making a donation:We only need to raise another $1,363 to trigger a pledge of $10,000. So we are certainly in striking distance of $120,000 and then who knows? Those who are looking for tax deductions could help us greatly at this point.
Meanwhile, we need another 51 donors to reach at total of 500 donors, which will trigger another pledge of $2,000.
