Recently, there had been a fundraising campaign where Schwan’s was donating 20% of purchases made from January 30th, 2015 to March 16th, 2015 to NAF (National Ataxia Foundation) for research, education and support for Ataxia.

I had intended for years and years, about sometime after I had moved away from where one of my friends drove for them. But, I just never worked up to doing it. But, now that I’m less mobile, it seems my freeze has become somewhat bare and there are other things I wish I had on hand, but never seem to get. Though I had done frozen food by UPS from other online places in the past, but those places have come and gone.

So, I had every intention of placing an order before the NAF conference, but as time past….I ran out of time. Wasn’t sure how long it ran after the conference, but intended to do it first thing….though when I saw that I had until March 16th, I didn’t feel as rushed. Except life continued to happen, and suddenly found myself forcing myself to finally do it on March 15th.

Just moments ago, I was curious to see how the campaign ended….since the goal was to raise $5000, and before my order it was only $270…guess it came to a bit under $300. But also found this note:
