Amazing and Atopic Etsy Shop - Food Allergy Memory Game

I'd like to take a moment to announce the grand opening of my Etsy Shop!

Amazing and Atopic Etsy Shop

I am participating in the San Antonio FARE Walk for Food Allergy, as a "virtual walker", as I have a wedding to attend, the day of the walk, but I figured that I can still work to raise funds for the event.  If anyone would care to make a tax-deductible donation to our walk team, please feel free to visit my walk page at:

My Etsy shop was born out of the desire to create useful and/or fun things for others, that I could sell and donate a portion of the proceeds to various "atopic"-related charities.  When thinking of the walk, I know that not everyone can afford to make large contributions (though please note that the minimum online donation amount, this year, has been lowered to $5.00), but I thought some might like to buy something fun for their family, while simultaneously supporting a good cause. :)

So, my first offering to you all is my Food Allergy Memory game!  My daughter loves playing Memory, and we have a Dora version, a Winnie the Pooh version, etc., but I thought it would be good to have one that helped her recognize common (and a few not-so-common) food allergens, by sight and name.  Even if she isn't allergic to all these foods, I think it's good for her to know about them.  When playing, we discuss which foods are safe for her and which are not.  The game also includes blank cards for making your own custom cards.  (Consider cutting out magazine pictures for the images.)

This game comes as a set of digital files for download that allow you to print the cards, to your liking, whether that be on Avery labels and affixed to a cardboard backing, or directly onto cardstock, or even on regular printer paper, if you so desire.

50% of the proceeds from the sale of this game will go to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), the new merged entity comprised of the former organizations FAAN and FAI.

So much of what we deal with regarding food allergies is not fun, so I hope this will bring some entertainment to your day!  If you have any suggestions for other things you'd like me to offer, I'm all ears!  Thank you!

  2. Very creative and impressive~ Way to think outside the box for education~

    1. Thank you so much for the kind comment! I was (as always) inspired by my daughter! Memory is one of her favorite games. :)
