A Different Kind of Holiday Giving
Connections. They're important to everyone. No one wants to travel the road alone and in our internet age, we're given thousands of different ways to connect with others, all across the world, every single day.
But what is missing? Are these internet connections as beneficial to us as real, in-person connections can be?
Do you love coffee like I do? I swear I live on the stuff. I drink it regularly at home but I also enjoy getting a delicious fancy something or other at the coffee shop as a treat. To be honest, the drinks I get from there hardly count as coffee – they are more like a dessert – but who can resist that cup of deliciousness?
How often do you treat yourself to a coffee or milkshake or other such deliciousness? Weekly? Monthly?
As you know, The Mommies Network is proud to offer FREE membership to any mom living in the chapter area (and to ANY mom on our National Chapter). It’s an important part of our mission to remain free so that any mom, regardless of her financial situation, can have access to our services and resources.
While we do depend on member donations and fundraisers, we also rely heavily on sponsors to fund our network and build new programs for our membership.
Christmas is coming and if you are anything like me, your Christmas list is already enough to bankrupt a small country. We know that money can be tight at this time of year, as all of your hard earned dollars go to buy presents for family and friends.
Did you know that you can support TMN and your chapter with the same dollars you use to buy those presents this year?
Well, you can!
We all have seasons in our lives – times when we have plenty of extra time and energy to volunteer and give back – and other times when family and work commitments make it impossible to do more than just keep up with your daily life.
Volunteering is a great way to give back to your local chapter or The Mommies Network. We are always so grateful for our volunteers. But even with a great volunteer team, our chapters cannot be successful without an additional key element: an active and engaged membership.
We know that money can be tight and with fundraisers coming in left and right from the schools, the last thing you need is another candle or bucket of cookie dough. While we do appreciate financial donations (and rely on them to ensure our network remains free for our moms!), we know we would be nothing without the amazing volunteers who donate their time and talents each day to mentor and support our members and volunteers and to administer the various tasks required of a nonprofit organization.
