‘Tis the season to THANK. Because the real power of social media lies in its ability to engage and interact, not just tally. Because without all of you we couldn’t have created this place to share our missions, to provide each other support and exchange ideas and news.
We have loved talking, starting a conversation, sharing our “stuff” (mostly educating people with what our doctors do at the highest standards), taking you behind the scenes and having fun. However, we have been able to build this online community thanks to everybody who pitched in and helped us walk towards our goal: make you “Breathe Easy Once Again”. There’s no greater accomplishment in the virtual world than seeing other businesses recognizing your efforts. It is an invitation to give more, and our humble way is to thank you and acknowledging you.
FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) for promoting the Food Allergy Awareness Week and letting us tag along and help bringing support. On another note: congratulations for merging with FAI (Food Allergy Initiative) and becoming FARE
No Nuts Moms Group for your ongoing and relentless dedication
Kids with Food Allergies Foundation for the most amazing webinars and educational videos that make living with allergies easy and easier
Allergy Eats! for keeping us on the loop and being one of the most accurate online guides for allergy-friendly restaurants
The Mayo Clinic and Ragan Communications for making the Health Care Social Media Summit an exceptionally educational one (mostly for helping us demonstrate how paramount is the use of social media in a modern business).
Elizabeth Goldenberg of Onespot Allergy for being at the forefront of all things allergy
Of all the books for kids, we thank two authors for having captured our attention
As for cooking allergy-friendly we love them all (truth is we love eating) and because we don’t want to be partial, we want to dedicate a round of applause to all the allergy-friendly foodies for their strenuous activity in giving the best advice when it comes to reading labels and finding substitutes.
A look back at all this brings us to the conclusion that 2012 has been a terrific year bearer of a lot of challenges as well as conquers.
We wish you all the most prosperous and successful 2013 looking forward to collaborating with you a little bit more.
