MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - APRIL 2020Category:
Normally we would start the April Newsletter with something about it being Parkinson’s Awareness Month, but every day is Parkinson’s Awareness Day; we also might even say something about April Fool’s Day, but with the Coronavirus pandemic in full force, that seems to be at the top of everyone’s mind.
At the PRO Office we have been frantically working to get video information out to you on topics we believe relevant to dealing with the Coronavirus. That, plus we garnered a few articles from our Wellness Villagers to also help.
We feel badly that we had to cancel/postpone our 30th Anniversary gala event. Very sad for more reasons than not celebrating a tremendous milestone, we did not realize the revenues that the event would have generated. We ask for your help in keeping PRO going at full speed.
Important Notice: Because of the COVID-19 health crisis, Congress passed a stimulus bill that expands the charitable deduction to all taxpayers for a one-year Universal Deduction. For those who itemize, the bill lifts the cap on annual giving from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent for the 2020 tax year and allows nonitemizers to deduct up to $300 in cash giving. Another great reason to give a gift to Parkinson’s Resource Organization at ParkinsonsResource.org/donate.
The ROAD TO THE CURE is still in progress as indicated in the article on this page. We’re grateful that the scientists are all well and proceeding toward this most needed goal; notwithstanding the CoVid-19 pandemic.
