The Will Be D.D. program founders have been dedicated to its continued operations in saving lives throughout the United States. The local community of Charles County, Maryland, where the program was founded and launched, have rallied around in support of the program. However, the task of finding sponsors has remained challenging.

Anna Woodford, local tavern owner contributed to the program with a Silver Sponsor level and has also recently hosted a fundraiser for the organization with a live band and food at their venue. "I never want any of my customers leaving here drunk and endangering themselves or the lives of the innocent people on our roads" ~ Woodford explains. The program offers customized membership packages - which means there is literally something for everyone.

The tavern has been recently renamed "Woody's Tavern" in honor and memory of her husband, "Woody" who passesd away due to a motorcycle accident on Rt. 301 in White Plains, MD last August.

Smallwood expresses concern with the continuation of the program after bootstrapping the program development with over $50,000 to-date. As they continue to work on the procurement of Federal grant funds, State, and local grant funding and support, the program evolves even more each week. However, Smallwood states, "it becomes more than discouraging when we see the rallying of people and businesses in support of the program - without fruition of their contributions. In fact just this week, Spotsylvania County, VA rejected the county-level funding proposal for operation expenses, although recent interviews with the Stafford County Police Department gave positive feedback.

The program can not continue without funding. To find out more on how you can help, please visit http://www.WillBeDD.com.
