It occurred to me that an organization might sell a fund-raising button or pin that we could wear in the market to ferret out other Celiacs and generally raise awareness. Something like "Support Celiac Disease Research" or something catchier.

They do exist. They are a small green ribbon pin (like the yellow "support the troops) . They cost $5 a pin. They are put out by the University of Chicago Hospital and Northeast Ohio Celiac Support Group. I had inquired about them back in May, so not sure if they still have a supply or not, I am sure you could contact them to find out. Here is the info that I got back in May.


Jessica,



We created the celiac disease awareness pin with the Northeast Ohio Celiac Support Group to raise awareness. All proceeds of pins purchased from us will go to support the mission of our organization, which is to raise diagnosis rates for celiac disease in the US through professional and patient education.



Anyone interested in a pin should send a check to:



University of Chicago Celiac Disease Program

5839 S. Maryland Avenue, MC4065, Room C-491

Chicago, IL. 60637



For $5/ per pin plus $.60 postage for an order of 1-10 pins (more than 10, postage is $1.00)



Thanks!
Michelle

I forgot about this one.......... it is called Angelic Grooves. http://angelicgrooves.com/ The lady creates bracelets, necklaces, and keychains out of crystals and beads. 20% of the profits go to Celiac Research. The bracelet runs 35$, necklace is 37$, and keychain is 10.99.

This is what the website says :

Celiac Disease Awareness

Celiac disease , also known as gluten intolerance, is a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 133 Americans. Symptoms of celiac disease can range from the classic features, such as diarrhea, weight loss, and malnutrition, to latent symptoms such as isolated nutrient deficiencies but no gastrointestinal symptoms. Those affected suffer damage to the villi (shortening and villous flattening) of the intestines, when they eat specific food-grain antigens, (toxic amino acid sequences) that are found in wheat, rye, and barley. Oats have traditionally been considered to be toxic to people suffering from Celiac Disease but recent scientific studies have shown otherwise.

Both of my daughters, Halle,(6) and McKenze (3) have Celiac Disease.  Now I have been tested also and have confirmed that I have it.  For this reason I have made the Celiac Disease Awareness jewelry (green catseye with peridot Swarvoski Crystals that represent the celiac color) with an awareness ribbon for Celiac Disease. I have chosen a few fundraisers to donate 20% of profits for Celiac Disease.

20% will go to the University of Maryland Center of Celiac Research

I think that's a great idea!

[COLOR=blue] Hi I am new to this board... I have been navigating around today and saw this and thought I should post! I ordered some and it is beautiful! I ordered last June and hardly take it off!!! I get so many compliments on my bracelet and it is really great to raise awareness. I just ordered again for my family and saw they are having a 15 % off the bracelets until the middle of Feburary. Just thought I would pass that around. Look forward to meeting everyone!
