We’re on a mission to put all those sneezes, sniffles, sleepless nights, headaches, and toots to some good.
1:4 people can’t afford the life-saving medications that their doctors prescribe. We learned that expensive medications often expire on shelves and end up in landfills before they can get to the people who need them. We work with a partner who gathers up those meds before they go bad and distributes them to people in need who cannot afford them.
If the technology exists, but the people who need it can’t get it, what’s the point?
We knew something had to be done, in a big way.
We started BETR to help fund this process, and are on a mission to re-build a broken medical system.
For every box of high-quality over the counter drugs we sell, we cover the cost of one month of prescription medications to someone who would otherwise have to go without.
One box sold, covers the cost of one month of RX meds, and changes one life for the BETR.
Same Relief. BETR Mission.
What happens when three different points of view, essential skillsets, and big hearts come together?
One founding team determined to realize the BETR Mission.
