Service Soapbox: The Baby Shower

Last Saturday was the first event for the Service Soapbox, and I was so proud to be on the committee. We collected over $2000 in baby items for the March of Dimes Teddy Bear Den! A huge success. We are so grateful to all who donated their time and made donations.

Here we are on Studio 5:

Please be sure to check out the Service Soapbox's blog tomorrow morning for the virtual baby shower.

*It took me all day to post this clip. I was terrified to see myself on the video and still haven't watched it. I hear that I am at the very beginning saying my blog's name in an overly chipper voice.  I am posting it today to give this great cause more publicity. I'm trying to remember that this event is bigger than my too-large nose and stick-straight hair.

Our service project supported the March of Dimes' Teddy Bear Den. We threw a baby shower for needy moms. It was really fun for us and the March of Dimes were so grateful.
We had so many wonderful treats donated. Those chocolate cupcakes from Sweet Tooth Fairy were to-die-for!
The decor was so cute. I especially loved the tissue-paper topiaries from House of Smith's and the floral arrangements from Garden House Floral. (I won one  of these floral arrangements in a drawing! It is sitting on my table and those lilies smell heavenly!)

And a special thanks to everyone who donated! The blog-o-sphere is so generous! I was shocked at how many presents were piled up on the table when the event was over. It was inspiring!

  3. You are a doll on the clip. Way to use your powers for good!

  4. You girls all looked so cute! Love it. Isn't it always so hard to see yourself on camera? Even harder sometimes is hearing your voice. How come it sounds different recorded then it does to me when I'm talking? :)

  5. I love reading about stuff like this - gives me warm fuzzies inside!

  6. You look great!

    It was so good to finally meet you!
