National Reye's Syndrome Foundation's Gifting Site
National Reye's Syndrome Foundation, Inc
|Planned Giving, or Gift Planning, is a way to support a special charity that you hold close to your heart. We are hoping that special charity is the National Reye’s Syndrome Foundation.
It doesn’t take much to create an enormous impact for years and generations to come in your family’s name, or the name of a loved one. We do recommend you have an attorney look over any forms you use in our free kits, and to let them help guide you safely through taxes, capital gains, and inheritance issues, and to provide you with the best advise about saving as much as you can for your heirs and beneficiaries.
Our free kits include information about Trusts, Estates, and Wills, including Health Care Power of Attorney information and sample wording and forms to use in designing your Gift Planning. These are simple guidelines and answers to most commonly asked questions about Gift Planning, and still, consulting an attorney will be of great benefit to you.
30 plus years ago, the National Reye’s Syndrome Foundation was created with a single purpose in mind… to fund research into finding the cause and a cure for Reye's Syndrome. What we found was a trigger for the syndrome in the form of salicylic acid. Our goal then was to alert parents and the medical community of the risks of aspirin products in regards to Reye's Syndrome in an attempt to save young lives. People and organizations across the United States stepped up to help us spread Awareness. We placed a noose around Reye's Syndrome and we reigned it in using Education. Using Awareness.
Education. Awareness. Reye's Syndrome isn’t Cancer, or Alzheimer's, it has not got a big well-known name where there is lots of money poured into research to develop drugs to combat the disease. No, Reye's Syndrome is far more devious and stealthy, far more horrendous, because Reye's Syndrome slinks in and mimics other childhood diseases such as meningitis, encephalopathy, sudden infant death syndrome, drug overdose. We battle a common, overly used, overly touted so-called ‘miracle’ drug known as aspirin, and we battle big pharmaceuticals who insist, even today, labeling it “baby” aspirin, or “children’s” aspirin.
Without a Guardian at the gate, who will teach the next generation of parents about Reye's Syndrome? Who will remind medical professionals to teach Reye's Syndrome in medical schools? Who will keep it at the forefront of people's minds during flu and chicken pox season? Who will continue to look out for those who cannot look after themselves? Who will step up and protect the children of today, and the children of tomorrow?
We worry about that. Reye's Syndrome has not gone away. And each time it steals a young life, grieving parents are confused and have no knowledge of the disease that took their precious child from them. Reye's Syndrome is still an enigma, a thing to be feared, a thing that needs to be taught until there is a cause and cure found; until Reye's Syndrome is eradicated, once and for all.
We need you to become a Guardian with us. We need you to include us in your Estate, Trust and Will. We need your great gift so we can save other precious children. Help us fight back at Reye's Syndrome. Let that be your Legacy for all time.
Your Legacy, in your name, your family’s name, or your precious child’s name will save the lives of countless children for countless years to come.
