For today’s Family Friday update, we’re extremely excited to share that 11 families with special needs children from across Mexico were generously gifted cannabidiol (CBD) oil product donations from sponsors of ECHO Connection. Extracted from the common hemp plant, CBD oil has shown to potentially have anti-epileptic, pain-relieving, neuroprotective, and anti-inflammatory effects that could be beneficial for a variety of conditions.
Given the chance to help support families met through ECHO Connection, brand ambassadors of our sponsor Kannaway, a direct marketing company that offers hemp products, generously donated $3755 to help cover the costs of much-needed CBD oil products.
At a recent Kannaway company retreat in Mexico, the brand ambassadors were able to hear first hand the experiences these families have had with CBD oil. ECHO Connection supporter and world-recognized CBD advocate Raul Elizalde introduced the families, including the youngest child ever to use CBD oil at just 4 weeks old.
Inspired by the stories of hope, the Kannaway brand ambassadors decided to support the families with the donation, which was then met with a 100% match by Kannaway, bringing the total contribution to $7510.
In an effort to ease the burden of families caring for a sick family member of a special needs child, ECHO Connection connects those facing special circumstances with the healing properties of cannabinoids and cannabidiol through generous donations. Cannabinoids and their therapeutic properties have brought hope to a number of families that had previously felt helpless.
You can make an individual contribution and directly help the special case families of Mexico get much-needed access to CBD by donating through ECHO Connection.
