Dear Friends of ABF,
We at the Arizona Burn Foundation have navigated the first half of 2020, like the rest of the world, having to look at how we are able to continue our mission and make an impact in our communities in an all new way. We have created an online series titled, "Continuing the Mission" that can be found on YouTube as well as our Facebook feed, in this 6-part series you will find we have found ways to keep our community engaged. Going virtual requires more than just a pivot it requires re-imagining how we can deliver our mission.
For ABF to be able to create the place for healing we look to the community for that support. As a "Friend of ABF" you will become a part of our burn community at a time when we need you most. As we have heard from our survivors, "ABF is a place to find healing and support", will you join us in that healing?
Please make a gift so that we can continue to provide burn prevention education and give more burn survivors the experience of growing in their healing process. Your donation will make an impact today!
Thank you for considering supporting the Arizona Burn Foundation.
