Last week I wrote an article for Huffington Post Women about Blog U (which you should really attend if you aren’t already because it’s going to be an epic conference and I never use the word epic for much of anything other than LTYM which I will write about as soon as I can wrap my brain around the experience) and about a group of women who supported me when I was a teen mom.
The article led to all kinds of emails from organizations working to support young and/or at risk moms and promote healthy babies. One email in particular caught my eye because it was from a company that is DOING SOMETHING to promote what they preach. This year alone, Delta Children will giveaway $1,000,000 worth of cribs to families in need as part of their Safe Sleep campaign . They have traveled the country, donating cribs to many—most of whom have been single teenage moms living in shelters or foster homes. This week, community leaders in Brooklyn, New York will find families in need and teach them about the importance of offering a safe place for babies to sleep. Delta Children will then donate 400 cribs to the children in this area.
Did you know this was happening? I didn’t but I’m glad I do now. If my kids were still of the crib-sleeping age we would be buying all the Delta cribs because I’m in love with what they are doing and the grassroots way they are going about their campaign.
Oh and guess what? I get to give away one of their cribs today. I feel like Oprah but with only one prize. I could almost say “You get a crib and you get a crib and you get a crib!” but I only have one to give away so I’ll just leave it at “One of you get a crib!”
And if you don’t need one you could always enter and donate the crib to your local women’s shelter because I’m pretty sure they will always need one more, especially now that they are unable to take donations of used cribs.
I’m giving away the Delta Manhattan 3-in-1 Crib in gray. Besides being really pretty, according to Delta Children it is “JPMA certified and has a mattress support system that adjusts to grow with your baby, plus converts from a crib to a toddler bed and daybed.”
There are all kinds of ways to enter below. Giveaway ends Tuesday, May 13 at midnight EST
