The Arthritis Foundation’s Supporting Kids with Arthritis program plans to launch a 2012 campaign to distribute backpacks filled with informative materials to the families of children with JA in western Pennsylvania in 2012. Each backpack contains educational materials and resources to help manage the impacts of the disease, and heat-therapy teddy bears to provide physical comfort and relief. Heat-therapy teddy bears radiate soothing warmth to reduce pain and inflammation in the joints, making doctor’s visits and waiting periods for IV infusions and injections more bearable.

CASA of Allegheny County, an organization working to comfort and assist abused and neglected children, is throwing a pregame Steelers tailgate party to help raise funds for its mission of relocating mistreated tots to a safe and permanent home. After nibbling on appetizers and paying for drinks with Monopoly money at the open bar, enlist notable Steelers players, including wide receiver Mike Wallace, to sign one piece of your football memorabilia during an exclusive autograph session. Although not included in the price of this Groupon, the Carnegie Science Center will provide parking ($7) for those arriving by car and open roof hatches for those arriving via the starship Enterprise.
