Your donation is essential to everything we do at LymeTV.
Ticks are a public health epidemic. Every year there is an estimated ~500,000 new cases of Lyme disease, & thousands more of other dangerous tick diseases. The highest incidence of cases is in the 5 - 14 age group.
It is now more important than ever to ensure that families receive the information they need to protect themselves against dangerous tick bites.When you make a gift to our organization, you directly impact the health of those most at risk for tick-borne diseases. LymeTV's programs include:
- Free health education program for children. Our Tick Jedi Health Education Program teaches kids all about ticks in a fun & engaging way, while also teaching prevention as an important life skill.
- Outreach to the local homeless community. We provide free tick repellent & Permethrin-treated socks through health events & also by direct distribution to our community partners.
- Film projects that highlight the dangers of ticks & the most robust science on the topic.
Our organization was founded on the concept of educating through video & other visual media to reach a wider audience. Our communication efforts use humor to drive engagement since people retain learned content better when they are entertained.
We cannot operate our programs without the generous support of donors like you! You allow us to address the top priorities of our community.
