Never Forget. Our Thanks To You.

Though it can be a challenge to thank each person individually, so many people have come together in support of Terri Schindler-Schiavo and her rights as a disabled individual.

The Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation received thousands of emails and faxes showing concern for this young woman and the outpouring of kindness and generosity has been breathtaking.

Even though we may not always have the ability to respond to every contact, your help is greatly appreciated.

The Original Grassroots Movement

The intervention of Florida lawmakers to stop a crime from being committed would not have happened without action from the community. People from all walks of life have taken a stand so that a terrible an irreversible wrong does not happen. This is the power of the grassroots movement. Together, we make a difference.

Within the disability community, there are many who work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of others. The Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation recognized the following for their commitment to the safety and well-being of disabled individuals:

  • Blogs for Terri
  • Hyscience
  • Not Dead Yet
  • Hospice Patients Alliance
  • Joni and Friends
  • Epivalothanasia
  • Fr. Rob Johansen
  • The Brothers of Peace
  • Wesley J. Smith

Special Thanks goes to Glenn Beck for his tireless dedication to Terri’s plight.

This is, by no means, a complete list of the people and groups who have spoken out on behalf of Terri. We will update as soon as we possibly can.
