Its late and I'm really really tired, but I want to post about this -- along with the help of some friends, I'm excited to announce that
we're having a Mom It Forward Fundraiser/
Mix 'n' Mingle event in Wisconsin!!!
WHEN: Saturday, April 18, 2009, 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Carrie's Stuckman's house, Sheboygan, WI
WHAT'S THE CHARITY?
Yehu Microfinance (http://yehu.org/) provides funding for women in Kenya to receive training and support in starting their own coconut oil extraction business. This oil is then sold to BasaBody (http://basabody.com/) and made into skin care items.
WHAT'RE WE DOIN'?
Along with a slew of other events online and off (see the Mom It Forward site for a list) this mixer is just one of many in person get-togethers that will be held across the US, Canada and Australia to raise money for this great charity. (Not near southeast Wisconsin? Check the M.I.F. site for a list of cities hosting events.)
While we mingle, you'll be able to sample the Basa Body's skin care items and purchase them if you'd like. We will also have a few GREAT items we'll be raffling off at the party. All ticket sales from the raffle will go directly to the charity!
PLUS! Donate $20 or purchase a product & you will be entered to win a $250 Disney Gift Card, a $150 Amazon.com Gift Card or a $100 Target Gift Card! (Click here for more info.)
I hope you'll be able to join us -- please email me or leave a comment on this post if you're interested. (Just make sure you include your email address on that comment so that I can send you event details!)
Can't join us? You can still donate and enter the gift card giveaway! There's a lovely little widget in my left sidebar where you can quickly and easily donate money online that will go directly to the charity.
