Baby Blues Connection is thrilled to be included in Willamette Week’s Give!Guide for the third year in a row as the only non-profit offering postpartum support. We’re entering the most exciting time of the year. Give!Guide runs November 2nd through the end of the year.
It’s an exciting time for us to think about all of the possibilities. How many new parents will we reach? Will more parents receive support from us? Will we reach our goal? While raising funds is certainly the goal of Give!Guide the silver lining is the publicity. And we get to give away such wonderful prizes!
This year we’ve pleased that The Children’s Clinic is matching $2,500 in donations through Give!Guide.
La Bonita will be donating one taco to the first 100 people who give $10 or more.
In December, we’re partnering Momma Tomma of Anatomy Tattoo on a ‘one for you and one for a friend‘ tattoo raffle. Everyone who gives $10 or more will be entered to win. Give more and be entered more times!
As a mom herself, Tomma really understands how the first years can be difficult and that’s why she supports the work we do!
We have prizes galore too! Certificates for donuts from Pips, tickets to a Winter Hawks game, a truckette bag from Queen Bee, gift cards from Verdigris and SE Wine Collective, a cake decorating class from Jam Cakes, bars of chocolate from Only Child Chocolates, a $100 certificate for Pick Your Dish and lip balms and soaps from Hillockburn Farm.
We’re giving away these prizes on opening day, each and every Big Give Day and for the final two days of Give!Guide 12/30 and 12/31.
Our goal this year is to raise $20,000. That’s a lot of money and we’re going to count on you to do your end-of-year giving with Baby Blues Connection, to spread the word by sharing our newsletters and social media posts. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Newsletters will come out the day before a Big Give Day and the day of.
Let’s not forget about the 35 and under challenge! Sponsored this year by Schlesinger Family Foundation, there are TWO prizes per category- $1,500 for first place and $500 for second place. We really want to win this challenge! We’ll be calling out to everyone to encourage those they know who are 35 and under to give to BBC.
We’re approaching a very exciting time. We hope you’ll be right there with us, feeling the excitement and supporting BBC!
