Hi there!

We're the Service Soapbox bloggers - a non-profit group of over 87 women (and counting) who've joined forces to use our blogs for good, putting together local and virtual events designed to do a little good in the world. 

We would love for YOU to join in the fun. Here's how:

In April, we've put together a series of events designed to raise awareness and products for the March of Dimes Teddy Bear Den.  The Teddy Bear Den helps to prevent birth defects by giving low-income women baby-related incentives (diapers, baby clothes, wipes) for participating in prenatal care and for avoiding unhealthy behaviors like smoking and drinking during pregnancy.

If you live in Utah... Grab a pack of diapers (or a case!), baby clothes, blanket, or anything else baby related (see the wish list here), and join us as we gather baby items for the March of Dimes Teddy Bear Den Baby Shower.  Grab a friend and come socialize with some amazing women on Saturday, April 24th, from 10AM - 12PM at Noah's in South Jordan, as we enjoy refreshments, great door prizes and lots of fun.

If you DON'T live in Utah
...The week after the event, starting on April 26th, we'll be hosting a virtual shower.  Everyone who donates baby items to the Teddy Bear Den will be eligible to win great prizes from PC Laptops, Ulta, GiftTree, the Vintage Pearl, Target, Marilee Jean, Blush, Bellybuds, Minutes with Me, and many many more.

Writing Contest:  On April 10th, we're hosting a writing contest designed to raise awareness. You'll be able to submit your new or old post about service, charity, birth defects or the March of Dimes.  Five finalists will be selected by a panel of judges - and the readers will then select one lucky winner, who will receive a $100 gift basket.

To become a member of Service Soapbox, just add your name and blog to the list in the sidebar and grab a blog badge for the baby shower or the group (below).  To attend the event, please RSVP below.  And please help us to spread the word by blogging, tweeting and Facebooking about the event. 

We would love to see you there!
