Default Taterade

So I was at a local festival today and this guy is selling this stuff named Taterade to help pay for his two daughters' (who are disabled and wheelchair bound) medical bills.

I look at the ingredients and am very surprised. 7g of carbs per serving. Sugar is listed along with sweet potatoes. Even some stevia in there. Nothing crazy at all. So I ask for a sample. It tastes absolutely wonderful, not too sweet at all, and my 1 year old won't stop drinking it. He loves it. So I buy two bottles with the intent to buy more.

His website is ridiculously basic and I'm thinking about helping him spiffy it up. I'm so intrigued by his ingenuity in creating a sports drink that is all natural and his want to help his family thought I would share it here.

www.taterade.com

This is the upcoming website, I'm in contact with the guy to buy lots more of this stuff and kind of give him some free advertising by passing it out.

Thanks. That's a heavy burden for children and families to bear.

Let us know when the site goes live so we can get the word out.

I hope he finds someone good to edit the copy on his site. It could use some help.
