We've made it to the first full week of this crazy birthday project of mine! Let me explain, for the newbs: because I feel so fortunate and have pretty much everything I could ever need, I am asking people to get involved with charities, if they are so inspired, in honor of my birthday. And in honor of caring, humanity and all that good stuff.
I am featuring a different charity every day for 50 days to give you plenty of chances to get involved. I started on May 18. I wanted to give a voice to different good works around the globe. If you ARE inspired to take action, please leave me a comment and let me know that you did. This is all I want for my birthday - to spread some love and kindness. Thank you, my dear friends.
Help a Mother Out is an organization with a simple mission: diapers. Can you imagine being a mom who can't afford to buy diapers for your baby?
I heard about HAMO from my friend Kim Tracy Prince, who runs the Southern California chapter. She talked last year at Creative Alliance 10 about this important project, and she convinced me. Here's what Kim has to say:
"HAMO is still a scrappy non-profit made up of moms who can't stand the idea of babies going without enough diapers to keep them clean and healthy. We are currently raising funds to keep us going: our goal is to hit $25K by May 31. If we do, Huggies will reward us with 100,000 additional diapers to aid in our efforts to help homeless and needy families. Just a little bit goes a long way." _____________ Thanks for any and all help for this great organization. You can donate in person or hold a virtual diaper drive.
