Many of you are probably aware that we have a High Blood Pressure and Pregnancy brochure that was completed last year and is steadily being distributed in local communities in the U.S. and Canada by volunteers and our state Group Coordinators. We realize the great need for a Spanish language version and have had the brochure translated but still have a few more steps before it will be ready for print. However, now is the time to start looking for a resource that would be interested in providing a significant printing donation. We were very fortunate last year to have one of our members negotiate with her workplace ( a major printing company)to provide us with 100,000 brochures as a donation. Another member was also able to secure a donation of 15,000 brochures from the company where she worked. We are hoping to connect with similar offers for printing of the spanish language version.
So, I wanted to post in this Forum in case anyone had any potential contacts that may be interested. Consider whether an employer may be a possibility or you may have contacts with others who may have an interest in providing printing or a financial donation to cover the cost of printing.
Please email me directly with any thoughts or ideas you may have. By the way, I apologize that the extent of my spanish ends with my greeting above, but Gloria has agreed to translate this for me!
