Theraflu Rest and Recover Fund

A Better Balance is partnering with Theraflu to raise awareness about the importance of the right to rest and recover when sick.

To help offset the lost wages families sacrifice by taking time off from work to recover and care for loved ones when they don’t have paid sick time, Theraflu created the Rest & Recover Fund in 2021. Theraflu’s Rest & Recover Fund is a small step to help alleviate financial hardship for workers without access to paid sick time. This cold and flu season, Theraflu has committed $300,000 — distributed via individual $200 microgrants — to cover one day of unpaid sick leave for those in need.


Who is eligible? 

  • Anyone without access to paid sick time through their employer is encouraged to apply for the microgrant so they can rest and recover without worry.
