Opportunities like these don’t happen every day!

We envision the STC model being integrated into person-centered care programs in hospitals around the country and woven into of the curriculum for students of social work and nursing. To make these goals a reality we need to step up the level of STC awareness among caregivers, professionals and institutions to confirm what this RN had to say about STC.
“Such a wonderful experience in caring for our fellow human beings.
Outstanding example of high quality human service.”
In order to accomplish all of this we need your support to cover the cost of conference/travel expenses to attend, present and network at the targeted conferences below.
Please realize that opportunities to present at Planetree and NHCGNE are limited and very competitive and being selected as a presenter is a VERY big deal!

Looking for MS Caregivers

Is looking for MS Caregivers to Get Engaged
in Merck’s Global MS Care Partner Initiative
Deadline to Participate: June 22, 2018
In partnership with IACO and Eurocarers, EMD Serono/Merck KGaA has launched a global advocacy project – MS Care Partner Initiative – to spotlight the common challenges of the carers or care partners providing care to persons living with multiple sclerosis (MS). One of the primary goals of the initiative is to address the availability and provision of supports and services to MS Care Partners, as well as the means of guidance on the standards of self-care and care for the care recipient.
To capture all the important aspects of caregiving for a person with MS, EMD Serono/Merck KGaA invites case studies/real-life stories and experiences from a variety of carers within the MS community (spouse, parent, child, carers of diverse cultural, linguistic, and other backgrounds, etc.) to be featured in a global MS survey report and/or the ‘By Day, By Night’ campaign. As part of the initiative, both positive and negative stories are welcomed, in order to illustrate the realities and the challenges of being an MS care partner. If you would like to be a part of this very important global project and would like to have your story featured in the report, please contact the team at FleishmanHillard Public Relations & Digital Marketing Agency at merck.care.partner@fhflondon.co.uk by June 22.

STC 2017 End of year Accomplishments and Appeal


Dear Share The Care Supporters,
Recently at an event, a working caregiver stopped by our STC table. Intuitively, I sensed that this particular woman was truly in desperate need of help.  At first she was reluctant to engage in much conversation and was readying herself to walk away.  So I took a chance and looked into her eyes and asked “can I give you a hug?”  It was that hug that blew open the dam. “I’m so overwhelmed.  I’ve been taking care of both my mother and my father for over 15 years.  My sister is of no help.” It was also clear that a lot of time had gone by since anyone had asked her how she was doing or took the time to listen to the enormous responsibilities she was carrying. This tiny demonstration of concern cracked open a door to a discussion with her about self-care, asking for help and how STC works.
Every day the number of caregivers is increasing and they NEED to know about STC. Our grassroots, evidence-informed model continues to prove its effectiveness as a compassionate solution to help caregivers everywhere. It is one of the most rewarding solutions to the caregiving crisis especially since STC gives novice caregivers a way to learn how to be a caregiver in the company of others, many of whom may be veteran caregivers.
We Need Your Support. There are important conferences we need to attend, STC materials to be developed and printed and STC books purchased to send to individuals and organizations that can raise the visibility of our cause.  Funds can help us enlist the services needed to do a webinar, for tech support, and to work on developing collaborations. It is also critical to have funds available when opportunities strike. We have requests for a Spanish and French edition of STC and are seeking publishers in other countries.  Do you know any?
If you have never made a donation to ShareTheCaregiving, Inc. before, please make this the year you start.
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 and sustain your group. We need you to TAKE ACTION NOW to back our work generously this year. A meaningful tax-deductible donation of $100, $500 or $1,000 or more would help sustain our efforts.

Dear Friends of Share The Care,
As a 2011 L’Oréal Paris Woman of Worth Honoree I’d like to ask you help to promote their exciting new campaign…so let’s give them some words #WorthSaying.

THE CAMPAIGN STARTS NOW
L’Oréal Paris is leveraging its global voice and long-standing red carpet leadership to launch a new campaign during this year’s Golden Globe awards. Inspired by our brand promise “Because You’re Worth It” and called #WorthSaying, the campaign is designed to propel the cultural shift happening around red carpet conversations and encourage women on the carpet – and off – to share words they believe are #WorthSaying.
Throughout Sunday January 10 Golden Globes night, L’Oréal Paris will be using its social platforms and digital advertising to help fuel the powerful words of women everywhere to reach, affect and inspire as many other women as possible.
How to Participate:
  • During the Golden Globes on January 10, take to Twitter between 5-11pm EST and share what’s #WorthSaying to you
  • Feel free to add a photo to accompany your words
  • Tag @LOrealParisUSA and use hashtag #WorthSaying
If you tweet a message pertaining to our STC mission it would be helpful if you include the @sharethecareorg handle in any tweet from your personal account

Keep in mind any tweet that starts with a twitter handle @LOrealParisUSA will NOT be visible on a twitter feed, if you have to word a tweet starting off with a handle, place a period in frontso that it may be visible, like this: .@LOrealParisUSA or .@sharethecaregiving

“Please let us know if you plan to participate and what social media channel/handle you’ll be using.   We’d love to keep an eye out for your post!”
THANK YOU!!!

Elizabeth Dole Foundation Fellowship Applications

 The Elizabeth Dole Foundation is now accepting applications for our 2016 class of Dole Caregiver Fellows!

The Dole Caregiver Fellowship provides those caring for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans the opportunity to advise national leaders through the Foundation’s network of public, private and nonprofit organizations providing services to caregivers.

Caregivers can click here to apply, or visit the Elizabeth Dole Foundation’s homepage at ElizabethDoleFoundation.org. The application deadline is October 1, 2015.

Members of the 2015 fellows class stood on stage with First Lady Michelle Obama and VA Secretary Robert McDonald at the Foundation’s Hidden Heroes Coalition Summit to share how caring for a wounded warrior has impacted their lives.  They carried their message to Capitol Hill during nearly 150 meetings with Members of Congress. In February, fellows attended a Foundation gathering of more than 100 leaders in the areas of caregiving, veterans’ issues and volunteering to give their perspective on how the nation could provide better support to military caregivers. And in their home states, the fellows served as ambassadors and organizers, developing connections among caregivers and educating local associations, community groups and businesses.

Please help us give caregivers a voice by sharing this application with your communities.

We are seeking applications from those caring for service members and veterans from both pre- and post-9/11 generations. The application website lists which states currently have openings. Successful applicants for the 2016 class will raise awareness of caregiver issues as part of the Foundation’s Hidden Heroes Campaign, chaired by Tom Hanks.

Thank you for your continued support!

Steve Schwab
Executive Director
The Elizabeth Dole Foundation
