What??? No one is interested in this simple idea in support of the PF mission?[:0] Of course we all juggle schedules that are filled with a variety of "things to do." But,if you've always wanted to help, and just haven't been sure how to dive in, this might be the ideal chance....[:)]

Bake Sales benefit everyone.

Bake Sales are one of the easiest, least-expensive ways to raise funds.

Bake Sales are a great way to help if you want to make a difference, but are unable to commit long-term energy toward the cause.

Bake Sales are something children can be a part of.

Bake Sales do not require experienced leadership to be successful.

Bake Sales make people smile.

Bake Sales are YUMMY !

Just $100, $50 or even $20 raised (one batch of cupcakes, decorated for valentine's day and sold at the local senior center....or a few cookies or cakes for your moms club....) would be a valuable contribution!!

Consider holding a bake sale ANYTIME during the month of FEBRUARY - your efforts will make a difference toward healthier moms and babies!

to benefit the Preeclampsia Foundation

Here is a simple, easily managed activity that you can do with your family or friends to help raise money and awareness in your local area for the Preeclampsia Foundation.

Consider coordinating a sale in your area by following these few steps.

1. Determine a date for holding the sale that falls between Feb 1 and Feb 15, 2008.
2. Secure a site (preferably cost-free) for holding the sale. Store fronts, community centers, daycares, churches are popular possibilities.
3. Contact friends, family and neighbors to make cookies, doughnuts, cupcakes, cakes, muffins, candy, etc. to be sold.
4. Advertise the sale in your community. Post flyers (use sample that can be provided or create your own), send emails, place a blurb in a community newsletter, church bulletin, or pass out info to your moms’ group or child’s classmates, etc.
5. Be willing to pass out info about Preeclampsia during the sale. Brochures, symptom magnets and/or other PF materials will be provided via mail to coordinators who sign-on for this fundraiser.

If you are interested in participating, notify Dawn Detweiler, National Fundraising Coordinator, at Dawn@preeclampsia.org by January 30th - or at least 10 days before you wish to hold sale.
More tips and guidance will be provided to coordinators who are willing to commit to this project.

Remember: multiple small fundraisers can add up to be as profitable as one large scale event. Be a part of this project and make a difference!
