Next Warehouse Day: October 26th

We’ve been quiet here on the old blog, chiefly because we’ve been busy with behind the scenes stuff and have gotten a bit lazy just posting community updates to Facebook.

Anyways, going forward keep a look out for more stuff here.

This is a photo taken by Cortney at Earth Baby at our last warehouse distribution day. We are always looking for volunteers (the EB warehouse is in Santa Clara) to help us in the warehouse, as well as groups who want to help with diaper drives.  If you are interested, let us know!

SoCal: #BlogHer11 Virtual Diaper Drive #hamo

This coming week some of the team will be at BlogHer ’11.

In case you haven’t heard, we’re hosting a service project to coincide with the conference, in hopes of raising much needed diaper funds we’d like to raise to benefit our Southern California families. Specifically, we have three agencies located in San Diego, Inland Empire, and east Los Angeles, who are currently on the waiting list to receive diapers.

Whether you are attending the conference or not, you can help us make a difference.

Bonus: We’re giving away an iPad, generously donated by our friends at Momversation, to one lucky online donor. And as of this writing, your chances look really good to win!

How you can help:

Spread the word about our virtual diaper drive. Official rules and more good stuff can be found via our event page.

Your online gift of $10 or more enters you to our iPad giveaway contest. Go ahead, click the BLUE button and help a mother out!

SF Bay Area Diaper Program Needs Help With Storage

We are on the hunt for temporary donated storage for our San Francisco Bay Area diaper program.

If you or someone you know is in the commercial real estate business, or owns a storage facility, we’d love your help in procuring donated space for the next six to nine months.

Here are the deets:

  • We’re looking for donated space – rent free/trade (December 2010)
  • Ideal cities: San Francisco, Oakland, Emeryville, Alameda
  • 750 square feet of warehouse-type storage space (shared  is fine!)
  • We need to be able to store pallets of product.
  • Access to loading dock a plus.
  • We need access to the space 1-3 times per month.

We’re low maintenance!

  • We have a virtual office, so we don’t need desk space.
  • We can offer our donor promotional consideration via our website and social media channels.
  • If desired, we can drive traffic to your location by holding community events.

Most importantly, our donor will be doing a tremendous good deed and make a significant impact on the work we do to help struggling families in the greater Bay Area.

Know someone? Please pass it on!
