Let’s Make A Difference! Help Us Find a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis

We are proud to support the Xtreme Hike for a Cure and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), which is dedicated to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, the most fatal disease among children and young adults. On Saturday April 20, 2013, our President Ray Scardigno and Team FiltersFast will participate in a 33.4 mile hike on the famous Appalachian Trail in North Carolina to raise money and awareness towards a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

To do our part in finding a cure for this chronic disease, we will donate $1 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for every order placed on Thursday March 7, 2013. This special event starts Midnight Thursday and will end at 11:59 PM EST Thursday night. You can also visit Team FiltersFast Xtreme Hike Home Page to place a donation directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. This chronic disease leads to clogged lungs that cause life-threatening lung infections, obstruction of the pancreas and prohibits natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

According to Deirdre Brand, Development Director of the Charlotte Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:

“The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is leading the charge in the development of new and innovative therapies, but the harsh reality is that the median life expectancy is still only 37 years. Because of the generosity of friends, family and co-workers over the past two years, the “Xtreme” hiking event that began as a long and painful trek with a few buddies just 4 years ago has now raised over $1,000,000. The Foundation receives no federal funding and depends solely upon the hard work and generosity of community-minded companies and individuals.”

The CFF scientists have made extraordinary success in the search for a cure but cannot continue without the necessary funds. Your generous donation will help give the gift of life to countless children and adults, not just in the US but around the world.

Remember, you can help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis in two ways:

1.)   Simply place an order on FiltersFast.com anytime between midnight Thursday March 7, 2013 and 11:59 PM EST. We will donate $1 to the CFF for every order placed.

2.)   Visit Team FiltersFast Xtreme Hike Home Page to give directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Any amount you donate, will go a long way in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.

How Our President’s Day Sale Came to Be – Free Shipping on all Filters

Recently, we were tasked with finding a way to promote President’s Day, a uniquely American holiday that is celebrated on the third Monday in February. This was no small task. Should we post a video of us singing “Home of the Brave” (acapella version) or should we dress up like past US Presidents and use words that no one uses anymore like “fourscore” and “thus” (we’re looking at you, Abe Lincoln). Just when we were about to give up on the idea and “try again next year”, it hit us: Since this is the land of the free, why not just give our loyal customers FREE shipping on all orders over $75?

On February 18, 2013 only, we are giving FREE Economy Shipping on every order over $75 in the continental US. This is the perfect opportunity to stock up on replacement air and water filters, water bottles for the upcoming spring months, and humidifiers to survive the rest of the winter. The shipping is on us, so you won’t have to pay a dime.

Although the singing option was my personal favorite, you can’t beat FREE shipping for your favorite items. Remember, it’s FREE Economy Shipping on all orders over $75 in the continental US (mainland, excludes Alaska and Hawaii). Don’t let this one time offer pass without taking advantage of it. This President’s Day, we want you to be Consumer-in-Chief (get it?) so browse through our website and place your order while this offer lasts.
