The Just Ask Foundation is currently in the process of planning a 2014 nationwide awareness campaign for neurofibromatosis.

Our multi-targeted campaign will consist of speaking engagements in cities with NF Chapters, television appearances (locally and nationally), ad campaigns, fundraisers, road trips in the Just Ask Mobile, a social media team and, well, you get the picture.

Wow! Those Are Some Really Big Plans!

You are correct. But if we want big results, we need to start with a big plan. Will we accomplish everything on the plan? Maybe. Maybe not, but until we try, we’ll never know.

But, in our mind, if we can make a difference in one person’s life, we will have succeeded. Big time!

Do You Have Any Success Stories?photo 3

Sure, tons of them, but this one pretty much says it all.

Earlier this year, we received a note from a young college student in Canada who had recently been diagnosed with NF.

She had met Reggie a few years before at an NF symposium in Calgary and very much wanted to see him again. She wrote the following letter to the Just Ask Foundation:

“It would mean the world to me if Reggie Bibbs would be able to attend the NF conference in Vancouver in October. Reggie is my inspiration, and I know you probably hear that a lot. But my story would be a whole lot different if I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Reggie a few years ago.

“I Was Ashamed for Having NF.”

She continued… “It has NOT been an easy journey for me. I’ve suffered from serious depression and a serious eating disorder, just because I was ashamed of who I was. I was ashamed for having NF, and I was embarrassed to tell people about my medical condition.

All I wanted was to be normal, but to be normal I needed to shut out pretty much everyone from my life and live behind a curtain of fake emotions and fake stories. It wasn’t until I met and heard Reggie speak that I felt comfortable enough to come clean, and to finally accept myself for who I am.

Without Reggie, I don’t even know if I would be here today.”

Funny you should mention that!

It’s going to take a little money. Not a fortune but certainly more than what we have in the bank right now which is about $514.

Up until now, we have depended on the sale of Just Ask! t-shirts and a few donations here and there to make ends meet. Well, quite frankly, to accomplish our goals for 2014, it will require a lot more than a few hundred dollars.

Our Fundraising Goal is $120,000.

Wow, that’s pretty aggressive. Yes, it is, but so are our goals!

Our plan is to target one major city a month via the “Just Ask! Mobile” for 12 months.

That’s $10,000 per month for two people to travel cross country raising awareness of neurofibromatosis. Speaking to NF groups. Appearing on radio programs, talk shows…who knows, maybe even The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The point is we’re going to be working our butts off raising awareness of NF at every stop and every mile marker on the road. At every truck shop, motel, restaurant and rest stop across the country.

Ok, ok, I said I was hooked!!! Can I donate some money?photo 1

Click on this link and donate as much as you can afford. That’s it. You provide the tools. We’ll do the heavy lifting.

Of course, the Just Ask Foundation is a 501(c)(3) so all donations are tax deductible!

Plus, we will be posting on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo, You Tube and every other social media network we can access to keep you informed of our travels and adventures.

We Are Thankful for Your Help!

As you come together with your loved ones, this holiday season, please remember all of our NF brothers and sisters who may not be as fortunate.  Any money we receive will be used to make life easier and enjoyable for all of us challenged by NF.

Just Ask Foundation Needs a Car To Spread the Word About NF

November 18th, 2013 adgiant

Screen Shot 2013-11-18 at 6.46.19 PMReggie is asking for help in raising funds to purchase an SUV that the Just Ask Foundation can use to attend more functions and spread the word about NF.

Phase II of the Just Ask Foundation Mission is about to take place. Reggie will begin traveling the city of Houston, the State of Texas, and the United States to raise awareness of neurofibromatosis. But before he travels a mile, there is one thing that he desperately needs: the means to get there. He needs a car. An SUV to be more specific. We are asking for help in raising funds to purchase a used SUV that we can use to be able to attend more functions.

Help send Reggie to Vancouver!

August 25th, 2013 adgiant
1097137_10151851495931518_403466163_oMy friend, Reggie Bibbs, has neurofibromatosis (NF). He is disfigured by this disorder yet he doesn’t let his disfigurement get in the way of living his life. In fact, he founded the Just Ask Foundation in order to spread awareness of NF and to help others with NF take back ownership of their lives.Consequently, Reggie travels throughout the U.S. and Canada speaking to NF groups and encouraging them by example and his humble demeanor.The reason for this posting is to raise money for Reggie so that he can travel to Vancouver, B.C. to speak at an NF event.Unfortunately, like many NF chapters throughout the world, funds are very limited. They can put him up in a hotel but cannot afford the airfare.

This is where you come in.

If we could get 1,200 people to donate $1, we can send Reggie W. Bibbs on his way. If we could get 120 people to donate $10, or 1 person to donate $1,200, you would be helping many people with NF hear the words of Reggie in person. Click here to donate!

I thank you for any help you can give. Thank you.

Happy Birthday Reggie Bibbs!

August 17th, 2013 adgiant

554938_10200868736013039_214259447_nTo all:
Today is Reggie W. Bibbs birthday and, to celebrate, I was going to buy Reggie a stripper for his party tonight but “Bill” wasn’t available so, instead, I made a donation to the Just Ask! Foundation. This way Reggie can use the money in a way that best serves his needs and that of the NF community.

If you would like to do the same, just click on the link below. I know Reggie would appreciate it as well as everyone who is challenged by neurofibromatosis.
