Bloggin’ Mama Social: Nominate a Local Charity

Last year we celebrated local bloggin’ mamas with a social, and we are busy planning the next one, which will take place on July 9, 2010 from 6:00-8:00pm at Gallery D. If you are a local mom who blogs about anything from parenting to your career or your passions, we look forward to meeting and mingling with you!

If you are wondering what exactly we do at the Bloggin’ Mama Social, we gather to eat, drink, socialize, listen to a special guest speaker talk about her journey and put in some good face-to-face time with other local moms. There are goodie bags stuffed with samples, products and coupons from local companies that will be given out to all bloggin’ mamas who attend. We also bid on excellent items donated by local companies in a silent auction. You can read all about last year’s event here.

Last year’s profits (we raised over $800!!) from the silent auction were given to Baby Ike and his family. This year, we are looking for a local charity to receive the funds raised from this year’s Bloggin’ Mama Social’s silent auction. If you you have a favorite local charity who you would like to nominate, leave a comment here by Friday, June 4, 2010. The LiveMom staff will review all nominations and pick one lucky charity.Advertisement
If you would like to attend the Bloggin’ Mama Social, please send an email to me with your name and email address to be added to the invite list; those will be going out in the next couple of weeks.The social is open to the public, but your name must be on the invite list to attend.

A special thanks to Food on the Table for sponsoring the 2010 Bloggin’ Mama Social and also to Gallery D for hosting. If you are a local business interested in participating, we are still looking for a couple of sponsors. We also are accepting items for the silent auction and the goodie bags. Email: Catherine[at]LiveMom.com. It is free for moms to attend and free for businesses who would like to be included in the goodie bags. Stay tuned for more details!!

  1. What a great idea! I would like to nominate Angelheart Children’s Shelter in Pflugerville. Angelheart is an emergency shelter that acts as a temporary home for youth from all over Texas. The shelter is the first stop for children entering the foster care system. They have just been removed from home situations of extreme abuse and neglect. Angelheart is currently raising funds to support a brand new recreational therapy program, which will help children transition to their new situations. They will learn skills (such as what to do with angry emotions) that will help them be more successful in foster families.

  2. I would like to nominate the Girls Empowerment Network of Austin (www.genaustin.org). GENaustin’s mission is to foster healthy self-esteem in girls by engaging them to explore and define their personal values and to build skills that empower them with confidence and courage to make wise choices. They have an afters chool program called clubGEN in many middle schools throughout Austin ISD and also some in Del Valle, Manor, Hays and Round Rock ISDs.

  3. I’ve heard about your website from several folks and would love to support you for the Bloggin’ Mama Social. My organization is very active in women focused philanthropy and advocation. We’d be honored to dedicate resources for your event and to your network. Please let me know how Massage Envy can best assist. I know there is no position more demanding than being a mother. I employ the largest team of massage therapists in the industry and can assist you both locally for the event and nationwide as well. Keep Bloggin’ ;-)
