Doin' Good in tha Hood

A few weeks back, I was fortunate enough to have been contacted by The Motherhood.  They were organizing an event for the brand new 77kids by American Eagle.  To launch the opening of 11 stores around the country, 77kids is hosting an event called Do Good Day

On July 14, 77 women in 11 cities will be "Doing Good" in their communities in pay-it-forward kinds of ways.  I, my friends, am part of Team Minnesota.  With 7 other amazing Minnesota moms, I will be at the Science Museum of Minnesota from 10:00 - 1:00 hosting "Doing Good in Your Neighborhood"!  Our intention is to raise awareness on how families can do good right at home!  We will be:
• Handing out wildflower seed packets to participants to encourage families to grow flowers and give them to their neighbors
• Coloring drawings/rubs on recycled flower seed paper that can be torn up and planted in a garden
• Having families write how they can do good in their own neighborhood for the environment and pin it to a map of Minnesota
• Educating families on ways to Do Good in their Neighborhood; picking up litter, saving water, etc

In addition to bringing "Doing Good" to a local level, I'm crazy excited to get to meet other Minnesota bloggers!  Take a minute to check these ladies out!

MaryBeth at Baby Good Buys


With all of this talk of Doing Good, I want to know, how do YOU do good in YOUR neighborhood?

On Wednesday, July 14 I'd like to hear about it!
Write post about how you do good for others or for your community.
◦What kind of random acts of kindness do you do?
◦Have you ever paid it forward? How?
◦What will you do today that will make someone smile?

Then, come back here AND go to The Girl Next Door Grows Up and link up to tell the world!


 If you can’t write a post, come back here on Wednesday and leave me a comment about something –one thing that you did that made someone smile.

I love it!!! I can't wait. Plus I have finally figured out where I am going to hand out all of the stuff they sent. At Emily's softball tournament on the 17-18th! Kids 5-12! It will be ideal.
