Finding time to volunteer or support a worthy cause often appeals to busy moms, but life gets in the way of our good intentions. Last week I got a reminder that many parents are making time for philanthropy. I got to get dressed up, dance and support a very worthy cause.
Elisabeth, my friend from the Regal Lager company (distributors of Cybex strollers, Bambino Mio diapers, etc.) invited a small group of writers/bloggers to join her at the First Candle Gala. First Candle is a non-profit group that aims to wipe out SIDS. They've been working on safe-sleeping campaigns and bereavement centers for families that have lost a baby.
My heart goes out to the families affected by the loss of a child. What is so inspiring, is that the families involved in First Candle moved through their grief and took action. They put their time and resources into an organization devoted to having all children reach their first birthday. Thank you First Candle for your efforts and thank you Regal Lager for having me and Mr. Momtrends as your guests and for supporting the parenting community. The evening was full of wonderful food, good company.
