When you have a baby all of a sudden there is also a long list of stuff that you have to get. Some things are definitely not necessary, but others, like cribs, clothing and strollers are essential but they can also be too expensive for many families.
Through this campaign, expectant mothers (or friends and families of) that are unable to purchase baby necessities are encouraged to share their stories of hardship and how these difficulties have impacted their ability to purchase baby items. Four finalists will be selected to create an essential baby registry and local members of their community will be able share their support by purchasing the requested items. The registry with the greatest number of purchases and/or donations will receive an additional $5,000 worth of goods, courtesy of MyRegistry.com.
The contest is open from September 15th through October 15th, 2011 and is open to all residents in the U.S.
