As part of our Give!Guide campaign, we’re engaging in several collaborations with other great non-profits. We help Skipping Bedtime with PDX Diaper Bank on November 11th. A great time was had and we’re looking forward to the next time we can skip bedtime. Mark your calendars for February 17th!

Next up, we want you to Take It To the Water! We’re partnering with Trillium Family Services to offer one heck of a prize on November 27th- Giving Tuesday. All you need to do it give $10 or more to BOTH organizations and you’ll be entered to win a 1.5 mile BrewBarge adventure on the Willamette River with 13 of your closest friends. Give more for more chances to win. Click here to give to Baby Blues Connection and here to give to Trillium Family Services. 

We’re hosting Souper Soup Sunday with Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare on Sunday, December 2nd. Click here to RSVP and then get your ‘ticket’ by donating to Baby Blues Connection through Give!Guide here and/or Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare here. Here’s a list of the great soups on the menu:

Lastly, if you love tattoos, you can support Baby Blues Connection by getting some flash at our Flash Ink For a Cause event at Happy Camper Tattoo! Flash is $200 and $70 of that comes back to Baby Blues Connection. Breakside Brewery is donating a 22 oz beer to everyone who receives a tattoo and we’re working on one more special surprise. Check out the Facebook event here for updates.

Prizes! We love highlighting businesses who support our mission and give away prizes throughout our Give!Guide campaign. So far, Dorothy S., Issac S. and Paula W. will all receive a bright and cheerful mug from Bread and Badger. We have one more mug to give away! If you want to win it, give! for your chance. When we will give it away? Check out our Facebook for regular updates.

Additionally, Megan L., Sarah M., and Krissy L. all won Random Acts of Kindness Kits from Lemon Kissed. We’ll have a few more of these to give away too!

More recently, Kimberly P. won a $50 GC to Assembly PDX and Krista B., Jade K. and Lauren M. won Depressed Cake Shop Portland gift packs including a ceramic mug with silicone lid, a magnet and two buttons.

Prizes are only special little perks. We know the real reason you give to Baby Blues Connection through Give!Guide is that you love and support the work we do in the community. Thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far! If you are committed to helping us reach our goal of raising $22,000 before the end of the year, click here to give!
