Welcome to our Virtual Baby Shower!

At the baby shower last Saturday we collected over $2,000 worth of baby items for the Teddy Bear Den! Thank you so much to everyone who came, who helped, who donated, who participated, and who helped to spread the word.  Look at what you all were able to accomplish!  It turned out wonderfully, and the people from the March of Dimes were just thrilled.

Welcome to the virtual portion of our baby shower to benefit the March of Dimes Teddy Bear Den! The Teddy Bear Den is a great charity that gives incentives to low income pregnant women for participating in healthy behaviors that help to prevent birth defects.

We need your help to stock the Den with baby items - and if you donate an item to the Teddy Bear Den (or have donated), you can enter to win one of the great donated prizes below! 

To donate, simply send a gift (or buy something online - for example, diapers, wipes, baby clothes, baby supplies, etc. - and have it shipped) directly to the Teddy Bear Den at this address:
