Hi, I'm Dale; I own and operate CollectingPez.com
Everybody knows how dedicated the PEZ Collecting Community is to helping charity! Every convention and gathering always holds Charity Auctions to support local charities in their area. PEZHEADS are the BEST!
How do you decide which charity to support, or how much involvement you should dedicate to helping out???
Unfortunately, often times it takes a personal affliction to make that decision for you... CollectingPez.com has donated, and still donates, items for each convention and most gatherings for use in their charity auctions, every season. I have not specified any charity as one that I support more than another. For many of us, I believe this to be the case.
I would like to take this opportunity to ask for your consideration to help
me and my family with support, awareness, and fund raising for the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation [CFF] !
The pictures displayed down the left side of this page are of my second granddaughter, Kileigh Elizabeth. She was born in August 2009, and diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) @ one week old.
CF is a devestating genetic disease that attacks the respiratory and digestive systems of thousands of children each year. It has no cure! It causes a thick sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive tract. This mucus blocks and clogs ducts causing severe infections and failures in both the lungs and digestive system. Just a few years ago, CF patients could only expect to live into their teenage years. Today, thanks to dedicated research, studies, and recent breakthroughs, many CF patients are living into their 30's. We have to keep the research going! We need your help!
With every meal, Kileigh has to have supplemental enzymes and added salt, daily. People with CF sweat out more salt than normal, so she must have to replace the salt that her body is losing. Every day we have to use a small device to do chest therapy, which helps keep her respirtory system clear. Also, she must to go to Bay State Hospital (one hour away from home) to get monitored, regularly. This is a lot for a baby, and a single mother of two, to go through, and will have to deal with for the rest of their lives.

If you host a convention or gathering, and are in need of a suitable charity, I urge you to get in touch with your local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation office. Or contact me, and I will get them in touch with you!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT !
