BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, EVERYONE!
Happy July! We are so excited to announce the first month of the Power of ONE, the My Mommy Manual Raffle. We introduced the idea at It’s ALL About Mom, our mom event last May. We have an amazing corporate sponsor, Artistic Sensations and now an equally amazing non-profit partner, Parents As Teachers.
WHAT IS THE POWER OF ONE?
What are we doing? We were so inspired by the success and good vibes from our Mom It Forward/12 for 12k Pajama Party and our most recent Believe in Zero Red Balloon Toss! We just don’t want the Giving to end! So we’re establishing the Power of ONE, an ongoing raffle starting TODAY… to raise money all year long for a charity selected by YOU!
WHO ARE WE SUPPORTING?
We happen to agree that Parents As Teachers is in perfect alignment with our mission of CONNECTION. Their vision is that “all children will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential.” They achieve this by providing parents with support and encouragement during their children’s crucial early years of life.
We had an amazing meeting today with Pat Simpson at the Parents As Teachers National Headquarters. Wow! We are so excited about this collaboration.
WHY “POWER OF ONE?”
We’ve named this program “Power of ONE” because we strongly believe that ONE person can make a difference, that ONE great parent can change the world by being a positive influence in a child’s life. It takes ONE person to believe, ONE person to empower an entire community, ONE dollar to be part of change.
