I Attend a group called Busy Babies put on by the Region of Waterloo Growing Healthy Together
I really enjoy being a peer and a mentor if needed, I had my daughter while living at Marys Place a shelter for women and met some really great people while there. I have been so blessed this year and wanted to give back to my community. Shannon my PSW ( Pastor's Sassy Wife) told me she had extra bags from our Social Media Conference Blissdom. I shared with her how awesome it would be to stuff the bags and give them to the ladies in my group. Of course she agreed with me and immediately began to send emails to brands and some replied and sent coupons and vitamins and we were a bit discouraged and understood it was kind of last minute. So she put a Facebook post and I commented what it was like to be a single mom and not receive anything you didn't purchase yourself. Well bloggers from all over started to send funds and our bags turned out so awesome. I love being part of a blogging community and felt so cared for.
A big Thank You goes out to EVERYONE who helped. stuff the bags at Shannon's Place on Tuesday night
