Give Thanks!


A Letter from the Chair of the Sibling Leadership Network

Shea Tanis, SLN Chair, and her brother
Dear Sibling Leadership Network Supporter,
Thanksgiving is a time of joyful celebration with family and friends. A time when we come together to reflect with gratitude on the blessing we have received over the past year and beyond. It is also a time to reflect on the deep bonds between siblings and other family members.
At the Sibling Leadership Network we are committed to providing siblings and their families with the information and tools to advocate with and alongside their family members with disabilities. Over the past year at the Sibling Leadership Network we have increased our membership to over 3,700 members; put on a national conference in conjunction with the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities that brought together siblings, self-advocates, family members, and professionals from 22 states as well as Canada and Japan; developed policy briefs highlighting legislation significant to siblings, continued and developed new partnerships with leading national disability organizations, led a variety of informative webinars; and provided resources, education, and peer support to numerous individuals through direct contact, conference presentations, and events.
In light of the important work we do to support siblings I am writing today to ask you to consider making a donation to support the work of the Sibling Leadership Network as Thanksgiving approaches. Any donation, no matter how large or small, will make a difference and be greatly appreciated. Donating is easy.
You can contribute to the Sibling Leadership directly online via our website at or by sending a check made out to the Sibling Leadership Network to:

We thank you for your ongoing support in realizing the mission of the Sibling Leadership Network.
Warm Wishes,
Shea Tanis
Board of Directors Chair, Sibling Leadership Network
