77 Kids -Do Good Day


About a month ago I was approached by The Motherhood to participate in a campaign started by American Eagle. American Eagle just recently started a new children's line of clothing called 77 Kids.

In celebration of the new line, American Eagle created the campaign Do Good Day. Do Good Day is being held July 14th. 11 different cities around the country will be participating in giving back to their communities through random acts of kindness.

77 Kids asked The Motherhood to team up with them and get local bloggers and their families in each city to help pay it forward with random acts of kindness on July 14th.

I can't tell you how honored I was to be chosen to work with the Chicago team. I am working with a group of wonderful bloggers. The Chicago team will be splitting up between two Ronald McDonald houses to prepare a meal for the families and provide them with some activities and donations of needed items. Here are the wonderful ladies I will be working with:


I can't tell you how proud I am to be able to share this experience with my girls and show them the importance of giving back and helping out.

77 Kids Do Good Day will take place in:

Boston
Cherry Hill, NJ.
Chicago
Danbury, CT.
Los Angeles
Minneapolis, MN.
New York City
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Syracuse, NY.
Washington
DC/Baltimore


Want to know more? Go to The Motherhood Circle and read what each city will be doing to give back.

On Wednesday the 14th I am going to ask everyone to do one of two things: write a post about how you and your family give back to your community and link up here or if you don't write a post, please leave a comment on how you have given back.

This is truly going to be an amazing day. I am so happy to be part of giving back in such a big way!

  6. I love reading your blog. I check it out all the time hoping for new posts!

    I hope you don’t mind --- I’ve been telling all my friends about your blog.

    I printed 100 free business cards with my 10 favorite websites (yours was #1!!) and handed them out at our last Mommy Meet-up.

    It made me wonder if you had ever done that for yourself? Do you ever meet anyone at a coffeeshop or a playground and start talking about blogging? Maybe you could print up some cards to hand out. Just an idea!

    In return for inspiring me, I wanted to pass on these money saving tips to you:
    -- 100 Free business cards at www.RedTagPrintSale.com

    In case you decide to get something else printed from them (besides the FREE business cards!) I also wanted to tell you about their unlimited use promo code - it never expires and you can use it again and again:
    -- 10% off promo code “RTPS10”

    FYI: I’ve used this company to print fliers and signs for Church events and even yard sales. The quality is really good compared to what I’ve gotten from VistaPrint and others that offer FREE business cards.

    I hope you have a great week. I’ll be checking back soon. Bye!
