Baby Items

This need has been met! We had several donors last night and the need was fully met today! Get this: we had donors donate items before we even posted this link on our social media sites. We're so excited to be able to meet this need. Thanks to YOU GUYS! Thanks for being the remedy.
 

NEW NEED: Baby Items

 
We love hearing about people helping others in their community. We got an email from Auntie Kim, a foster mother in Atlanta. She runs a non-profit that helps other foster parents take care of the kids in their homes. They provide a safe and loving environment for kids that have a tough story to tell. Auntie Kim informed us that one of the girls that she helps, Miss B, is a mom as well. She's young and learning that parenting isn't easy. She has a 3 yr. old and has one on the way. To be the best parent she can be, she needs a little help. Aside from the love, support, and guidance she gets from Auntie Kim, Miss B needs a few material items. Below is a list of what we're hoping to get for her:
 
Car Seat
Light-weight Stroller
Infant Formula- Good Start Soy
 
If you can help with all or even just part of this need or know of someone who can, email Amy Bley at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . She'll get you connected with the perfect way to help. Thanks for being the remedy!

Boy's Clothes

 

 

This need was met in under 5 minutes! What a great way to start out the year! Below is the need we posted. 

 

NEW NEED: Boy's Clothes

Here at the beremedy, we're huge advocates of families. We've recently heard of a boy who was in foster care and is about to be adopted. This is really exciting! We've created a family for ourselves and can't wait for this guy to experience the same love we feel! Alas, some paper work got lost in the process and has created a significant hold up in the process between the states. While awaiting to be united with his new family, the foster home he was in burned down and he lost everything he owned, which wasn't much. His immediate needs are clothes, which we're also big advocates for. :) We'd really like to help him out but will need YOUR help to do this! Here's the details of what we need.

Size 11 Shoes

Size 32 Pants (long)

Size Medium and Large Shirts, Sweatshirts and Jackets.

Let's help this guy out while he's waiting on his new family! If you'd like to help with this need or know someone who can, email Cate Entrekin at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Bunk Beds

 

NEW NEED: Bunk Beds and Mattresses

 
As most of us have experienced lately or at some point, life can throw us curve balls sometimes. Sometimes we don't quite have everything we need to deal with it. Susan, a Forsyth county school employee, has taken in her daughter and family. There are not enough beds for the children and they don't have the means to purchase them. We'd like to get bunk beds for the kids so they can have a place to sleep of their own. If you can help with this need or know someone who can, email Amy Bley at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . She'll get you connected so you can donate and be a remedy this BEcember! Thanks for being the remedy!

Coats

 

 

NEW NEED: Coats

Baby, it's cold outside! Don't forget your coat! If you don't have one, there's a problem. Bread of Life Ministries Food Kitchen is an organization out of Alabama and they're great at meeting needs in their community. A local group of middle schoolers is teaming up to collect coats for the people that this organization helps. We LOVE what they're doing and are joining in the hunt for wintery-weather-wear. If you've got an extra and want to give it, we'll take it to someone without one!

If you can help with this need or know someone that can, show up with your extra coats to the parking lot at North Point Community Church Alpharetta, Ga THIS Friday from 3-6pm. If you can't drop off your hand me downs, email Amy Bley at Amy@beremedy.org to get connected with the right people. Thanks for being the remedy.

Winter Boots

 

 

NEW NEED: Winter Boots Size 8.5

 

Here at beremedy, we love the fall season. The colors, crisp, cool air and the rain get us pretty pumped. We realize that without proper outerwear, this weather is a bit of a Debbie-Downer. How could anyone enjoy it while their toes are freezing? There's a young girl who is walking around in flip flops and although, she probably loves the weather just as much as we do, she has no means of acquiring some warmer wearables. We've been told that this girl doesn't ever ask for anything for herself. Let's do something for her and provide her with some fantastically furry footwear. This way, while she enjoys the changing weather, she can also remain healthy as the temperatures drop.

If you can help with this need or know someone who can, please email Jamie Prentice at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . She'll get you connected with the right people to make sure this growing girl gets what she needs.

We're hoping to get her something like those Ugg boots we're beginning to see more of. What's awesome is that you can find them most places now for a fraction of the price! OR here>>> http://amzn.com/w/2D5V5DN1UXW01 online! She needs a size 8.5. Thanks for being the remedy!

#beremedy day recap

beremedy Day Reaches all the Way to the UK

(Hey, that rhymes!)


It all started with a tweet Adam Swords received on a beautiful Wednesday in September. With the help of noted photographer, Jeremy Cowart, beremedy launched an official #beremedy day with Twitter as the vehicle. #beremedy day began what became a global campaign for helping others in need and sharing about it via social media. Meeting needs in local communities through the use of Twitter seemed like a productive way to spend the following day, and that’s exactly what Adam decided to do. 

The next day, Adam sped off on his quest. Not sure how to start such a task, he blindly started walking down the streets of his hometown Kenilworth, Warwickshire (UK). Armed only with a camera, clipboard, pens, paper, and goodwill, he began striking up conversations with locals. 

At first, this “cold calling” approach was tedious and Adam hit a few brick walls. But, after meandering a bit, he wandered into the local flower shop and stumbled upon his first need from the owner Gabriella- locally grown flowers. “Ok”, he thought, “I can handle this”. Holding a sign that read “I need locally grown flowers”, Adam snapped a photo of Gabriella and “voilá”, the first documented need. Encouraged by his success, he forged on through town arriving at the local youth center.

Here he found Andy, the manager of the center. Enthralled by the idea, Andy revealed a story about some local skaters badly in need of some good PR and an adept project manager. See, the locals weren’t so keen on the idea of their new skate park and generally perceive the skaters as noisy, troublesome delinquents. In an effort to raise money for the park, the youngsters were planning the release of a calendar. Adam knew he’d found THE need. 

A professional photographer, Adam quickly agreed to manage the calendar and mentor the skaters on sports photography. They couldn’t have been more excited and exhibited a level of maturity with which even their harshest critics would be impressed. 

In Adam’s own words, “And so that's what my #beremedy day amounted to. I've uncovered two people in need and helped a group myself - a pretty successful day by anyone's standards.”

Lamps

 

 

 

 This need has been met! Thanks for being a remedy!

 

 

NEW NEED: 18 Lamps

One of the things that beremedy loves best is working with other organizations to meet needs. Zion Hill came to us with a need that we feel is legit. They need 18 bedroom lamps. Help us out? Here's why you should:

 

Zion Hill houses homeless women that are above the age of 55 and older that meet the HUD's (housing and urban development) definition of chronically homeless. There are several constituents put into place in order to help these women to their feet and not just aid their stagnant nature. Zion Hill provides housing, transportation assistance, mental health services, counseling services, nursing services and provides various workshops addressing life skills and women issues. The apartments are furnished with the basic necessities to begin their transition. While in the program, the ladies work on goals to obtain income and identify and address the barriers that hinder them from becoming and remaining self sufficient.

 

We think this is great! If you can help with this need or know someone who can, email Brian Sudduth at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . He's the case manager for this need and is awaiting YOUR email!

 

ALSO, if you'd like another option, beremedy has a wishlist on Amazon.com. You can find it here: http://amzn.com/w/2TB7J0SZBSAGS. We've researched inexpensive quality items to make meeting needs easier! Brian will provide you with a shipping address. Thanks for being the remedy. Remember! "I love lamp!"

Shoes

 

 

 

 

NEW NEED: Shoes 

 

Shoes seem to be a staple in life. Those who would rather not step barefoot on a nail, gum, or prickly pinecone, typically choose to wear shoes. Some people can't provide themselves with a pair. This is a problem. According to the social workers that we work with, there's a boy who needs a pair of shoes, size 6 1/2 in mens. It looks like he's made the choice to avoid getting a weird foot fungus or picking gum out from between his toes (gross), but has no means of acquiring the much needed pair. If you can help out with this need, or know someone who can, email us! The case manager for this need is Amy Bley and her email address is Amy@beremedy.org. She is patiently awaiting YOUR email!  ALSO, you have options! If you'd like to buy online, follow this link to our wish list on Amazon.com: http://amzn.com/w/2TB7J0SZBSAGS. Here, we've searched for some inexpensive quality items to make it a little easier. Amy can give you details on the shipping address. Happy shopping! Thanks for being a remedy!
