Pregnancy Sickness Support is excited to launch its Bounty Pack Campaign and we need your help!
Many of you will remember receiving your mum-to-be Bounty pack containing information and free samples. Bounty's Pregnancy Information Folder is given to expectant mums across the UK by midwives and healthcare professionals during the booking-in process.
We are aiming to raise enough money to have the charity's information leaflets included in Bounty's Pregnancy Information Folder. This would give us the potential to reach every single mum-to-be in the UK with details of the support the charity can provide. This will ensure that more women struggling to cope with severe pregnancy sickness and hyperemesis gravidarum are able to access the vital support and treatment they need.
Bounty has agreed to waive its normal marketing fee, but we still need to raise £9,000 to cover the cost of designing and printing of 800,000 leaflets. This is a huge amount of money for a tiny charity and it will be a massive challenge for us to reach this target.
We simply can't do this without you and so we are asking for your help.
How can you help?
You can text any amount £3, £5, £10 and the full amount will come to the charity.

You can also help by circulating this information to your friends and family and asking them to donate too.
There are many other ways you can raise money for the charity such as taking part in sponsored events; hosting a Big Brew coffee morning; organising quiz nights; cake sales; charity auctions etc.
Even if you don't have much spare time and can't commit to organising an event, there are still lots of small things you can do such as registering with Easyfundraising to raise money each time you shop online; hosting a dinner with friends and raising money via Dinner4Good; or recycling your mobile phones and empty ink cartridges.

Why is this so important?
Please think about all those women struggling to cope with their pregnancy sickness, feeling isolated and frightened for their own health and their baby's. Imagine what a massive difference it would make to them to find out that Pregnancy Sickness Support exists. They would know that they are not alone and that there are people out there who understand and who can help them through the dark days of HG. This is why it is so important that we raise this money so that we can reach out to those many sufferers who don't yet know there is help, support and treatment available.
Pregnancy Sickness Support is a small charity but with your help we can make a big difference to so many women. Every little counts so please, please do what you can to help us reach our target.
