    1. Hello! I am writing because I love your website and I am actually in the process of launching my own. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease recently, and started as a way to keep myself organized as well as meet other gluten free people, and share what I have learned. The official launch party is coming up, and I am trying to spread the word. Tons of companies, including Kinnikinnick, Lucy's and Bob's Red Mill are giving away free products during the launch! I am asking if you could help spread the word in any way, from tweeting, to writing about it, Facebook, etc. People, yourself included, are encouraged to subscribe by email or through Google friend connect ASAP to get in on the giveaways! Thanks in advance!
