It's a Baby(less) Shower!

You know how we all love to do charity? (We do, right? RIGHT?) Well, here is a chance to do charity AND have a party! What could be better?

I have joined a blogger charity group called the Service Soapbox Blogger Group. We get together every month to chat, talk, gab, chew the fat and, oh, do nice things for others while we're at it.

Our first event is a baby-less baby shower. The organization called The March of Dimes Teddy Bear Den Program (TBD) has created a way for people (OK, we know it's just women) to get together and donate baby goods to low income mothers. But instead of just handing them over, we have an actual baby shower! There are prizes, games, food, and fun....just no actual mom or baby present. All the gifts go to the organization for the future babies and their mommies. Doesn't that sound like a fun way to do charity work?

So if you'd like to attend, you can view the invitation and RSVP here. If you live out of town/state/country but would still like to participate, there will also be a virtual baby shower. Click here.

I hope you'll consider coming or donating. It's for a good cause. And did I mention there would be food? And prizes? And talking??? Good, so now you have no excuses.

See you there!
