Holiday Appeal Letter & 2014 Accomplishments!
ONE THING YOU CAN SAY ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION IS THAT WE WALK OUR TALK.
This year Phyllis, our administrator, jumped into action to start a Share The Care (STC) group to support a neighborhood friend, suffering from leukemia, cope with massive rounds of chemotherapy before her (successful) bone marrow transplant. “Andra’s Allies” is made up of friends from their local block association-a mini village of New York City neighbors-who were her key support for 10 months and continue their efforts as Andra slowly recovers. As Phyllis points out, this was an eye-opening experience for all involved.
Our organization is unique in that not only do we educate people about STC but we also train other organizations, institutions, and faith communities to use our model to help their caregivers, care recipients and families. This often means donations go elsewhere other than to ShareTheCaregiving. So please know that we truly rely upon our supporters to help us keep helping others. STC information is too critical not to share.
If you are part of an STC group, or are helped by one, please reflect on your experience and the value of having a ready-made plan to organize your group. We need you to TAKE ACTION to support our work generously this year.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation of $100, $500 or $1,000 to help us grow and expand our reach. You can even make a significant donation to STC as a whole group. Visit our website DONATE page that lists a variety of ways people can give. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS – YOUR GIFTS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE
You may donate online at: www.sharethecare.org/donate or if you prefer by check. If sending a check, please send to the address below and make it payable to:

Donations are used to cover the cost of books, and creating, printing, and mailing our training and educational program materials. We need funds to develop new educational materials. People who contact us for support are pleasantly surprised to get a “personal” email or telephone call back; something of a rarity these days.
STC RESEARCH STUDY UNDERWAY
In the Spring of 2015 researcher Amy Hegenger plans to publish and present the results from her study of the STC model. She has collected feedback from past and present STC group members, caregivers and care recipients.
The goal of the study is to attain evidenced-based status for STC by proving the many benefits derived from using the model.
