I found this online today in the news section of a Bristol site. more businesses like this should help the newtown, ct families .....

Barter Business Unlimited, the regionís leading barter exchange company for business owners throughout the United States, announced today that it surpassed its original goal of $100,000 and has raised $214,000 for The Cove Center for Grieving Children, a Meriden, CT nonprofit organization.

"Through our efforts and with thanks to so many of our barter members, like EasySeat, Inc. and our trading partners, The Cove Center for Grieving Children will have the resources to provide counseling services to many Newtown, CT area families," said Debbie Lombardi, president, Barter Business Unlimited. "In light of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, Barter Business Unlimited decided to put all of its efforts into supporting The Cove Center for Grieving Children, an organization that will provide support to the victims' families during the long period of healing that needs to take place."

Headquartered in Meriden, CT, The Cove Center for Grieving Children is a nonprofit organization that is working to open a site serving Newtown, CT and surrounding towns to support the children and families of the community. The Cove currently has five family sites in Connecticut and will be opening two additional family sites this year. The Cove provides family and school-based programs utilizing the peer support group concept for helping children, teens and families work with their unresolved grief due to the death of someone significant in their lives and other traumatic losses. For more information about The Cove, visit www.covect.org/support-for-new-cove-sites .

"The Cove has been trying to obtain funding with the goal of opening additional centers in Connecticut. After the Newtown tragedy, this goal quickly became a critical need. With the substantial donations raised by Barter Business Unlimited, its wonderful employees, members, and partners, The Cove can now meet that need and open a site in Fairfield County to serve the Newtown, Connecticut community. The Cove's board of directors, volunteers and especially the kids are forever thankful for this generous support from Barter Business Unlimited," said Kinga Evans, board member, The Cove Center for Grieving Children.

With offices based in Bristol, Connecticut, Barter Business Unlimited is a proud member of the Universal Currency, Greater Bristol Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Trade Executives and the International Reciprocal Trade Association.

Good idea in regard to helping the Sandy Hook effort -- assist the efforts of a legit nonprofit in Connecticut. This way, dollars and human resources can be coordinated and resources not lost. Kudos to these barter networkers.

We work with Barter Business - great company - we made a donation using our barter. It made us feel good to be able to do something when money is tight.
