Better BedRest Needs your help!

Hello all. I was so pleased today when I came here to our Causes page on Facebook to see that we have grown to 70 members from all around the US! If you are not on, please visit and join our cause to support women on bedrest w high risk pregnancies.

The reason I am writing today is to ask everyone to be creative and think of possible companies that might have an interest in making a tax deductible donation to Better Bedrest, Inc.

We can make contact with these companies, we just need your ideas and thoughts. If you know someone at a company and feel comfortable enough to ask, we welcome that as well.

We are trying to raise more money for our Emergency Grant Fund. This year in particular with the economy and what I call the "winter storm" babies that are all going to be due in the fall, we have given out $10,000+ in grants. Women are losing their homes, jobs and being evicted. I have never in such a short period of time experienced hearing the stories I have heard, along with the phone volunteers of BBR. We welcome all discussions here and ideas!

If you or your sphere of friends and family wish to make a tax deductible donation you can do so on our website through Pay Pal or send direclyt to us at P.O. Box 212, Savage Md. 20763

I can honestly say that in the almost 2 decades that I have been involved with BBR I have never seen the need more than now. You know me, I want to help everyone, but can not do this without other peoples help. I will continue to strive to make this "invisible" crisis visible. I thank you all for your time and help. Every penny helps. Sincerely, Joanie Reisfeld, Founder Better BedRest, Inc
