Big 'Ole Charity Doantions

Alrighty. I have been going back and forth on whether or not to address this here and I am going to do it on the most basic level. Most of you know that last month Crankypants, Good Mama and a ton of other super awesome mama artisans raised about $4000 for a charity called Miracle Diapers. Due to circumstances I really don't feel like getting into again, Miracle Diapers is no longer the beneficiary of this money. The money has been donated to St. Jude's Children's Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House, The March of Dimes (I thought about your Henry while doing this one, Sarah) and The Real Diaper Association. I am happy to provide receipts and/or confirmation numbers to any of the donating mamas who ask, just email me. I was super bummed at the drama surrounding the whole charity event, but ultimately, it isn't about me. I'm happy the money is going to help some kids. That's all we can ask for, right? And $4000 isn't peanuts. Next up- I am planning to do the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in 2008 so be on the look out for fund raising events for that in the new year.

In other news, I ended up with a pair of 4/5 Ooga Booga undies still available if anyone wants them. I was holding them for someone who inquired, but she was looking for a set, so they are back up for grabs.

The end of year sale was a rousing success yesterday and I am in full on shipping mode. I am hoping that everything will go out this afternoon, so watch your mailboxes.

And check out our friend Liz from Cozy Blue all over the latest issue of Small Magazine. Go Liz!!!

Dear March of Dimes supporter,

Your help is needed!

You may have heard the news …WalkAmerica is now called March for Babies. Our new name makes it very clear who we’re walking for ― all babies.

Now we need your help in getting the word out. Whether it’s in a blog, an email to friends or by putting this badge on your website … every mention of our new name helps.

Visit our Web site at http://www.marchforbabies.org/SpreadtheWord for our new logo and other materials to help us spread the word.

While our event name is different, our mission remains the same. March of Dimes is still the champion for babies – raising funds needed for research and programs that make a difference in the lives of babies and their families.

We appreciate your ongoing support. Please don’t hesitate to e-mail us at marchforbabies@marchofdimes.com if you have any questions about our new name or our event.

One day all babies will be born healthy, but we have to walk to get there.

Thank you,
March for Babies Team
