The beginning of March brings opportunity to make a difference with 1-800-PACK-RAT as they launch the March personalized container commemorating Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month. 

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the central nervous system interrupting the brain’s communication with the body, often leading to a loss of motor control. The cause of this disease is still widely unknown in the medical community, and for those diagnosed with MS, managing the symptoms is an ongoing process. There are an estimated two million people worldwide currently living with this incurable disease, but the more research scientists can accomplish, the closer they become to understanding the cause and treatment options to achieve remission.

To honor the company's commitment to giving back to local communities and the people in need within those communities, 1-800-PACK-RAT will donate up to $500 to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society during the month of March. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s vision is a world free of MS and 100 percent of their focus is to help those affected by the disease and their families “live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.”

Request your personalized, digital container from 1-800-PACK-RAT’s Facebook page beginning March 1st, and 1-800-PACK-RAT will donate $5 to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society on your behalf for each container requested. Share the container or post it on your timeline so that your friends and family can participate and help put an end to MS!
