Happy Thanksgiving From Rabbit Air!

This week, millions of people across America will come together to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families, and to recount all of the reasons they have to be thankful.  Rabbit Air has many reasons to be thankful too: We are thankful for our loyal customers, for our dedicated team, and for the amazing organizations that we are so proud to be affiliated with.  These organizations work tirelessly throughout the year, and we would like to take the time to thank some of them for all the good that they do.

Healthy Child, Healthy World
For 20 years, this organization has pursued its mission to protect children from dangerous chemicals and environmental toxins.  When the organization was founded, there was little research on the affect that these chemicals had on the health of children, or how they may have contributed to the increase in ailments, such as cancer in young children.  Since then, the group has been instrumental in promoting research in this area, and working with government agencies to put better protective measures in place.  Healthy Child Healthy World reaches out to parents across the globe to empower them to take action and work toward making the world a safer place for our children.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America
When this foundation was first started, its aim was to reach out to allergy specialists to help create more effective allergy treatments.  As the foundation grew, its goals expanded with it, and today they have broadened their efforts to not only fund research, but to provide support and education to those who suffer from these conditions.  Just this year, the AAFA celebrated its 60th anniversary, and with every passing year, they are able to provide more exceptional services, from support groups and forums, to their important certification program that labels products, like our MinusA2 Asthma and Allergy Friendly™, that help sufferers to create healthier home environments.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The most important goal of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is to find a cure for Breast Cancer as soon as possible, and to develop new preventions and treatments for this serious disease which affects one out of eight women in the United States.  The BCRF was founded more than twenty years ago, and has awarded millions of dollars to researchers studying this illness.  Currently 91 cents of every dollar donated to the BCRF goes directly toward research or their awareness programs, and they have been an invaluable resource for scientists and patients alike.

We feel extremely lucky to be able to partner with such important organizations, and we thank them all for their unending hard work and determination to make the world a better place.

May is Asthma Awareness Month

May is National Asthma Awareness Month, an important time of year where government organizations and non-profit programs reach out to communities across America to provide education about this serious condition. It is estimated that as many as 20 million Americans suffer from asthma, a chronic illness that affects the airways of the lungs and can cause symptoms such as wheezing or shortness of breath. Though it is a genetic condition, asthma attacks are often caused by environmental triggers, such as dust, mold spores, or other forms of indoor and outdoor air pollutants. If you or someone you love suffers from asthma, learning more about the illness and what you can do to manage triggers is an important step for staying healthy, happy, and in control of your asthma.

For more information regarding asthma awareness, there are a number of great online resources that provide helpful tips and materials. The EPA provides free educational materials, from guides with asthma prevention tips to fun activity books for children. AirNow.gov is another useful resource that provides daily air quality forecasts and information about particle pollution. If you are considering using an air purifier to help tackle the air pollutants that can trigger asthma attacks, Rabbit Air offers the MinusA2 Asthma and Allergy Friendly Edition air purifier which is certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. This important organization is dedicated to helping people who suffer from asthma and allergies, and is another fantastic source of information through their educational resources advocacy programs.
