One of the blogs that I follow, Scout-a Mom’s guide to stylish living, posted this – and I think it’s a great cause – so I thought I would re-post. This is from her blog – I have nothing to do with organizing the event.. actually – I don’t even know her (although I’d love too.. great style, and a good read) – I read her blog, and that’s about it!
Spring into Hope, a shopping event to benefit the Marian Hope Center for Children’s Therapy located in Independence, Missouri. If you are not familiar, the Marian Hope Center is a non-profit organization servicing children with Autism, Down syndrome and other special needs throughout the metro Kansas City area. The center offers a variety of therapeutic programs and consultative services to meet the array of needs of children in our community. With 1 in 6 children being diagnosed with special needs, it is important for our community to come together to embrace our children and families. Having a booth at an event like this is a great way to expose your business/shop/items to a large group of women (WHO LOVE TO SHOP!) and most importantly it is to support an incredible cause!
What other organizations around Kansas City are you interested in? I think having a list of important orgs in KC would be a great idea. Have a suggestion?
