We are filing paperwork to make our 501(c)III organization Incorporated. Beginning on January 1st, we will have a new name. Our Boards have agreed upon:
CHERUBS - The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness and Support
The words Advocacy and Awareness are the same thing but Advocacy is a bit out-dated. It was used back in 1995 when I set CHERUBS up, but Awareness is now used more often so we decided to up-date the name since we are going through this process anyway.
We should be Incorporated fairly soon after the new year. It only took us 3 months to figure out how to file all the 501(c)III paperwork back in 1995 when I was only 22 yrs old and doing it all myself and without the internet for help. So this should be a piece of cake this time around! Wink Plus, we have lawyers and an accountant all pro bono to help us if we need it.
All of our new Cafepress items will reflect the new name and web site address.
