SMA Support is
starting up a small newsletter called "The Angel Times" to be
mailed directly to your homes quarterly for those interested in
It is not trying to compete with any
other newsletter, it is not big and fancy. It WILL be
about families and children dealing with SMA in all respects.
Children here and gone; children using Palliative care, NIV care, or
Trach care; adults living with SMA in various ways and types; families
living without their loved ones, sibling issues...anything. The
first edition is scheduled to "hit the stands" in April, and will have
several interesting articles on all sorts of topics, some written by
people you know and love, some by outside experts/guests. We
will be including a quarterly calendar of Birthdays, Anniversaries,
Angel Days, etc. in each edition, a focus highlighting any special
fundraising efforts going on for the quarter, pictures, any special
events going on, any special opportunities, deals on supplies or
equipment, introducing new programs, and so on.
we feel that SMA Support's current funds are best used to serve the
purpose intended--purchasing supplies, equipment, reimbursing shipping
for such things, purchasing services needed for children dealing with
SMA, etc., no SMA Support funds will go towards the printing or
mailing of The Angel Times. I will be personally covering
those costs at this time. So to help offset the expenses, we are
asking for a donation of $5 per year from anyone who would like to
receive the newsletter. That comes out to $1.25 per issue!
It won't cover all the costs, but it will help!
We will send out a note at the beginning of each year to subscribers
to verify their continued interest and current address.
anyone has any questions, suggestions or comments on the newsletter,
or would like to submit a birthday, angel day, picture, poem, article,
or anything else for the newsletter, or to subscribe now, please
let me know!
