An exciting announcement!

Baby Blues Connection is pleased to once again be part of Willamette Week’s Give!Guide!  We raise about 20% of our annual fundraising budget from participation in Give!Guide. We’ll look forward to your support! We have some great events, collaborations and prizes to give out this year! You’ll want to follow our social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and look out for weekly newsletters containing all these details.

If you aren’t familiar with Give!Guide, it is a fundraising opportunity for Portland area non-profits. Click on the link above to view last year’s webpage. Then, on Nov. 1st the new page is live.

We’re pleased to work with the following business partners this year!
The Children’s Clinic
 will again match the first $2,500 in donations to BBC. We’ve also partnered with Nectar Cafe to offer the first 100 donors a $5 coupon good at any location. With your coupon, get 50% off a waffle, one free coffee/espresso drink or 75% off a smoothie! Additionally, Austin Sabin with John L. Scott is offering a two-night stay at his beautiful beach home as a raffle in December. All those who give! are entered to win. Every $10 equals one raffle ticket. Give more to increase your chances of winning.

Mark your calendars to join us for Skipping Bedtime on Sunday, 11/11 from 6-10 pm at White Owl Social Club. Shake what your mama gave you, get home at a perfectly reasonable hour and still be an Ok-ish human the next day. We’re joining forces with PDX Diaper Bank for this one! Get your tickets to “free-dom” for a night here. Let someone else put the kids to bed. Also, give $10 or more, support both organizations and be entered to win a hot air balloon ride from Vista Balloon Adventures! This event is sponsored by Growing Seeds Learning Community.
We’re collaborating with Trillium Family Services for a special incentive prize on Giving Tuesday. Hint- Let’s Take It to The Water Portland! Look for live Facebook announcements about this one!
Mark your calendars again for Souper Soup Sunday on Sunday, December 2nd. We’ll be working with Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare to bring communities together to pair bread and soup for this family-focused event. We’re seeking culinary artists! We need ten people/teams to create large batches of soup at home to serve 50-60 people. Interested in participating? Express your interest HERE!  List up to three potential soups of different varieties that you are excited to make. Interested participants will be notified on October 30th of which soup out of the three they should make for the competition. There is a $10 entry contribution which doubles as a Give!Guide donation (with requisite Give!Guide perks included- see above).
Happy Camper Tattoo is holding a flash tattoo sale for us on Friday and Saturday, December 7th and 8th from 12-6 pm. All flash is $200 with $70 of that coming back to BBC! Donate another $70 and be entered to win a tattoo from Redd! Images of the flash available soon. Follow our Facebook event here.
Look for more information on our incentives for each Big Give Day as well as fun contests in places you might not expect them. Give!Guide season is almost upon us!
We’ll look forward to your support!
