I must say allergy moms must be the MOST persuasive group of people out there. THANK YOU to not only Blue Bear but to other companies who are listening to us about the products we are looking for. :thanksign

Love the badge! If we could get an enamel pin that would be amazing.

I agree that Allergy Moms are the best! :happydance I hope that newbies to the forum read some of our funnier threads to see how to make the best of Our Club!

He is gorgeous! You know, last month, my dh and I both were wearing daffodils and we were asked by so many people why. Both of us were very surprised by the amount of people who did not know about the Canadian Cancer Society who have been promoting that for years. It seems to be overshadowed by all the different kinds of cancers. Not that that's a bad thing, but I do think that if we get out and promote all food allergies and really jump on this teal thing, well, whooop yah! :happydance

This generation of mothers have taken allergies much farther than the last. With support groups, cook books.... I am sure my mother would have done anything to have this support. BIG strides have been taken and with this ribbon awareness I see BIG strides being taken again. :thumbsup

:banana :happydance Dance of joy happening in my house right now!
I will also get an enamel pin so I can move it between hoodies.

I have to say I am very excited about all this! It is great to know there are people out there fighting for awareness. :thanksign

I wish this forum was around when my mom was trying to figure out my allergies as a kid but I am very happy you are all here to help now :happydance

I would love to have a pin if they make one :goodidea

I don't think I did the copy past correctly. :oops
Sorry people I don't have this computer thing down yet. :banghead

This is where Susan had posted a web site that had teal metal ribbons (Apr 12). They look like great ones.

I ordered my Blue Bear teal ribbons, they come in 2 sizes now. Also if you spend more than 45$ (in May) be sure to use the 15% off code Susan posted. I ordered DS a shirt also so thank you Susan for posting that, I never would have known about it.

Well, I hope everyone caught that cuz the A.L. link w/polka dots is no longer on A.C.'s website. That's too bad.
