Don't Forget About the Baby Shower!

(If you've signed up to be a part of the Service Soapbox blogging group, please be sure to remind folks about this on your blog today - this is the point of the Service Soapbox - to do good stuff with our blogs - and it doesn't work unless we actually USE OUR BLOGS to spread the word!)

Will you be there?

It's going to be a fun open-house style party for bloggers and non-bloggers alike, with lots of refreshments and TONS of great door prizes for those who donate something to the charity.  Please bring your friends, kids, and family.  It will be from 10AM - 12PM (open house style) at My Noah's in South Jordan (322 West 11000 South - directions below).

This is such a great charity. They help to prevent birth defects by educating low income women about how to protect their babies prenatally. Women who successfully participate in the program (by getting prenatal care, quitting smoking, avoiding unhealthy behaviors before and after the birth of the baby, etc.) are offered baby items like diapers, wipes, baby clothes, blankets, and more. We're helping by working to "stock the den" with baby items.

If you come out tomorrow and bring an item (diapers, wipes, baby clothes, blankets - anything new for a baby) for the Teddy Bear Den, you'll have the opportunity to snack on some great refreshments (from Amberlicious Cakes, Creamies, Cookietree, Lofthouse Cookies, Sweet Tooth Fairy, So Cupcake, Kohlers, and more) and to win some great donated door prizes from:

We're so thankful to all of our wonderful sponsors.  In addition to these door prize sponsors, Dear Lizzie, Walmart, Western Family, Salutations Etsy shop, Baby, Mobile Airbrush Tanning, Great Clips, and the Jordan River Family Medical Center have all donated money or items for the charity.

My Noah's donated the space, Zurcher's donated the party supplies, and Garden House Floral donated the centerpieces. We're so thankful for these wonderful folks. I can't tell you how touched we've been by their generosity.

I really hope to see you there!

Directions:  Take I-15 to 106th South. Turn left on 106th South.  Turn left on South Jordan Gateway.  Turn right on 11000 South. The building is on your right.

Next week, we have a virtual shower going on - everyone who donates (by purchasing something online and having it shipped to the charity) will have a chance to win something in our giveaway (with prizes from Shabby Apple, Marili Jean, Doodlekins, Minutes with Me, Belly Buds, Flowerz in Her Hair, Ulta and more).  Thanks to our awesome committee for putting this event together - and a special shout-out to Kate B. for rounding up MANY of the prizes (thanks so much Kate).

PS:  The winner of the Writing Contest is Kathryn from Sassafrass!  Thanks so much Sassafrass - email me at suelikestoblogandwastetime at gmail dot com and we'll arrange to get the basket over to you.
