What we like to call our Forever Friends
J.J. Vulopas | The Land of Can
We love supporting young people who actively contribute to today’s food allergy discussion while making an effort to spread awareness. J.J. Vulopas is a college senior at The Wharton School who lives with life-threatening food allergies and started a blog to take action. He’s also the author of The Land of NOT, a children’s book he wrote “to help kids with food allergies discover their strengths,” he explains. The message behind The Land of Not, is to, as one veteran educator said, "inspire, empower and transform every child, [helping them] understand their possibilities rather than define themselves by their limitations.”

RSFO X FARE
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in every 13 children in the U.S. – or roughly two in every classroom. FARE’s mission is to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments.
RSFO x EAT - AWARENESS FOR A CURE
End Allergies Together (EAT) mission is to end food allergies by directly funding the scientists seeking treatments and ultimately, cures. We are grateful to work together with RSFO to support each other’s efforts in education, awareness and funding critical research for this growing epidemic. Together we can make a difference!
RSFO X Keep Smilin' for Abbie
When we discovered that Keep Smilin' for Abbie teamed up with the Wyss Institute to create the first wearable, non-invasive device that could detect the onset of anaphylaxis signs, we were ecstatic to support their efforts.
Project Abbie is inspired by the story of Abbie Benford, who succumbed to complications related to anaphylaxis just eight days before her 16th birthday. The Wyss Institute, in collaboration with Boston Children’s Hospital, is developing a wearable, non-invasive device that could sense anaphylaxis and automatically inject epinephrine in individuals who are unable to do so themselves; a device that could have saved Abbie’s life.
We'd like to say thank you to the following companies for supporting us in carrying out our mission.
Dicks Sporting Goods, Starbucks, Converse Palm Beach Outlets, Jimmy Choo, meat market Restaurant, The Colony Hotel, Nut Free Vermont, Caroline Cakes, Veronica Beard, Stir crazy Chicago, LA SIRENA RESTAURANT
