Fundraising Through Pear for Preeclampsia Research #JohnsonvilleSponsors

This is a sponsored post where all money raised will be donated to preeclampsia research.

When I was pregnant with my second child I was very sick from the second I saw those 2 pink lines. Hyperemisis, weight loss, exhaustion, you name it I had it. When I was around 25 weeks pregnant I began to feel some type of pressure in my chest and blew it off as indigestion. After going a week feeling really crappy I went to my then OB who diagnosed me with gallstones and gallbladder issues. 

At 26 weeks pregnant I was admitted to the High Risk Floor with preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome after almost loosing my life and my unborn child's life. 

I recently learned about Pear's Johnsonville Charity Support Program that can help fundraising efforts to help with additional research about preeclampsia. I will be donating the funds that I raise through my Pear to the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia Cherry Hill location.

Here is some info about how this works:
 If you are in the Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or Baltimore areas, your social network can help raise $1,000 or more toward a charity of your choice! How? By getting sponsored by Johnsonville on Pear! Not a part of a group but your child is? You still qualify! To get started, create a sponsorship page on Pear & invite friends to join in. The more people who join, the more money your group can earn toward charity!

Campaigns to raise money through Pear only last 10 days to spreading the word is crucial. You don't need to reach the full $1,000. What you raise is what you will receive for your cause. At the end of 10 days you can cash out and donate to your favorite 501c3 organization.

The qualifying charities are 
sports team
not for profit or caused based organization

Age Ranges:
 13-17, 18-24, 25-35, 36-54, 55+

Our sponsorship is now live on Pear so please help us reach our goal . We only have 9 days left. 

Even better is that if you start your own Pear, the folks at Pear will add $50 to it automatically if you create one by clicking your preferred program link!
