I have the AWESOME opportunity to co host this picnic with a few area bloggers. Myself along with Ilina Ewan Dirt and Noise, Molly Gold Go Mom!, and Amanda Peel Manda Blogs About will be hosting this wonderful event. The date is Friday June 11, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Moore Square.
Here is a link to Moore Square on Google Maps: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=moore+park,+raleigh,+nc&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=NLYGTKrSGMPflgf3o62HCw&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&ved=0CAYQ_AU
Come one, come all! All area bloggers are invited, please tell your friends, family and bring the kids! We’ll have tons of fun, Hebrew National Hot dogs, friends and we’ll be doing a community service project. Good Music, Activities will include GIANT puzzles, a mechanical bull, amongst other activities for all to enjoy!
Our service projects are as follows:
1) In-kind diaper donation drive to benefit local Help A Mother Out organizations. Please bring diapers with you to donate at the Picnic!
2) “Sibling Kits” to donate to local hospitals Wake Med Children’s and Duke/UNC Children’s
We will decorate canvas bags and write a note of support to put inside. Then we will fill the bags with appropriate toys and activities. The siblings of hospitalized children rarely receive activity kits of this type while they wait at the hospital and we’ve determined an unmet need is taking a little extra care of the other kids in the families, too. We are very excited about this project.
There is an opportunity to make in-kind donations for the sibling kit project, as well.
Suggested items to donate for sibling kits for children’s hospitals:
paint by number kit
activity books (like word find, connect the dot, etc.)
plain drawing paper
notepad and stamper
