We have many exciting things to share with you at the start of this new year and many opportunities for you to get involved! Our mission is Furthering advances in pediatric feeding disorder by accelerating identification, igniting research, and promoting collaborative care for children and families – and we will always stay laser focused on that mission. Thank you for embracing a new year of challenges and a new year of opportunities with us.
- Become a monthly donor
Monthly donors are like your very own subscription to support Feeding Matters and the families we serve. What’s a better way to support than to keep us top of mind every month? For even $10/month, you can make a huge impact in the lives of families and children with PFD. Your donation goes to support our four pillars of Education, Advocacy, Research, and Family Support.
- Follow us @feedingmatters and like, comment, or share!
One of the best ways we can spread awareness about pediatric feeding disorder is through social media. So be sure to follow us on social channels @feedingmatters and interact with us, we’re all in this together!
- Host an event to support Feeding Matters and spread PFD Awareness!
Ready to take your support to the next level? Consider hosting an event fundraiser for Feeding Matters. These events raise vital funds and build awareness to help create a world where children with PFD will thrive. If you are interested in hosting an event, we are here to share our materials with you to make it a success. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more. We’ll be sharing some of the events taking place across the country with all of you in future newsletters as these events are critical to our success!
- Ask new parents how feeding is going…and listen when they respond
Time and time again, we hear from families that they felt alone in their PFD journey or that their family and friends could not understand. So one of the biggest ways you can support any family with an infant or child is to just be there. To listen without judgment and without advice. Your presence can be the thing that helps a parent or caregiver know that they are not alone.
- Attend the International PFD Conference
If you are a family member or a healthcare professional, you will find what you are looking for at the International PFD Conference. While this event is available on-demand, you’ll want to block out your calendar for the days if you can as you will not want to miss the flurry of conversations from passionate people across the world. This short event makes an impact that lasts throughout the whole year.
