Donate to the Cause

Hi, I'm Sam and that's my mom supporting me in my journey to wellness! I'm grateful my parents could afford to pay for my Lyme Disease and Co-Infection treatments, but I know there can be financial road blocks to getting well. Thankfully my family and our Lyme Warrior friends have created this foundation so we can help other families beat Lyme Disease with financial assistance.

Reusable Bags for a Great Cause

We are so excited to have been selected to participate in the GIANT Giving Tag Program, which is designed to make it easy for customers of GIANT stores to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment. This ongoing opportunity can be taken advantage of at any GIANT store. All you have to do is purchase a $2.50 reusable Bags 4 My Cause Bag, follow the instructions on the attached Giving Tag and we will receive a $1 donation! This is a great way to support the environment and fundraise for our cause. If everyone on our email list purchased just ONE bag and directed the $1 donation to us, we would receive a donation of around $400.



How We are Helping Children

Sam's Spoons works with different sponsors to secure permethrin treated socks, which are distributed to children in area schools. If you are interested in sponsoring a specific grade level of a school district, contact us for more information.

From a teacher/parent and daughter: 

Lyme disease can ruin your entire summer and your life, so it’s important that we do everything we can to prevent it. 

From Sam's Spoons: 

I want to provide lots of fun, outdoor activities for my child. I appreciate that the school district also provides those opportunities for her, but I worry constantly about the ticks and Lyme disease.  

It gave me peace of mind to know that my child had the tick socks to help protect her.  

These socks allowed students to enjoy the wilderness with less worry on the parents’ end!
