MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE MESSAGE
President of Sammi Mendenhall Creative
Plain and simple, I was that person who demanded peanuts on the plane. I didn’t have peanut allergies and I didn’t realize the ramifications of peanut allergies. But when I saw Thomas Silvera on the news explaining how his son Elijah died after eating a cheese sandwich, given to him by his teachers who knew that Elijah had a dairy allergy, I decided to educate myself and others about food allergies. This PSA is for the little ones who need help in educating people just like me.
