My xmas card to famous people with family members with peanut allergies



My xmas card to famous people with family members with peanut allergies who haven't exactly come forward to help raise awareness about this issue so very close to our hearts -- especially at this time of year.

Dear Those In The Public Eye Who Really Could Make A Difference:

Dear Peanut Allergy Parents who would truly, unquestionably, give us more credibility and support in our peanut allergy world -- we need you now, not later. Just saying. 
Those of us shaking the trees of wisdom and change on our own all this time could use a LITTLE bit of your support at our sides with your collective wit, wisdom, humor, visibility and authority just to stand by our sides as we slog through all this banging the drum for more awareness of our kid's issues every single day.
So, before we ring out 2015 - I gotta ask:
Tina Fey: Where are you?
Obamas: Where are you?
We know where Mr. Adkins and Carell are, but where are the powerful, revered, yet so silent rest of you? Are you embarrassed your kid has a peanut allergy? We get that. Are you afraid for your child's safety if you reveal they have this deadly allergy? Well, oh boy, we get that one, too!
So, just wondering before this year is over, where are the rest of you who I know want to raise money for a treatment, dare I say, a cure one day? Where are you to help us put stock epi pens in all schools? Where are you to help us raise awareness for labeling laws? Where. Are. You? 
We could use your help.
Anyhow, thanks for listening. Reading. 
Happy Holidays, from all of us at Parents Of Kids With A Severe Peanut Allergy Support Group, since 2008.
