Boo Baskets for Sunshine Acres

Every Halloween I have made Charlie a “Boo Basket”. Similarly themed to an Easter Basket, but Halloween themed. This year for Halloween, we decided to spread some love to some foster children. We carried on our Boo Basket tradition to Sunshine Acres. Sunshine Acres provides a loving, wholesome, Christian home for children who are separated from their parents.

Sunshine Acres is a 501 (c) 3 Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization. This Halloween I have teamed with GoodPop to help raise money for Sunshine Acres foster care children. For every donation, we have some YUMMY incentives. Visit the page here for more information.

A huge thank you to all the companies listed below who made our Boo Baskets such a success this year! We love you!

Valentine’s Day with Maggie’s Place

This year for Valentine’s Day we decided to give a little love to some mommies in need. We donated Valentines Day bags to Maggie’s Place. Maggie’s Place is a community that provides houses of hospitality for parenting mothers and pregnant mothers here in Arizona. I had the opportunity to visit Maggie’s Place during the Christmas season and was overwhelmed with emotions as I realized just how blessed I am. When I first brought Charlie home from the hospital, I found myself overwhelmed, anxious and often times saying “why is this so hard.” For me, it was a difficult transition.  After visiting Maggie’s Place and seeing these mommies with new babies that also had the stress of needing shelter, I realized just how lucky I had it. Thats when I decided to pamper these mommies for Valentines Day.

Here’s what our Valentine’s Day bags included (Product links at bottom):

Our Valentine’s Day bags included the following items:

Mommy Needs More Coffee Mug by Pearhead

Maui Babe Browning Lotion and After Browning Lotion by Maui Babe

Baby shampoo and stretch mark cream by Erbaviva

Undies by BootayBag

Guess How Much I Love You Book and Milestone Cards by Candlewick Press

Thank you to all the companies who made Maggie’s Place Mommies so blessed this Valentines Day! We love you!

Boo Baskets 

This year for Halloween, Charlie and I wanted to do something good for those less fortunate than us. Every year since Charlie was born, I’ve made him a “Boo Basket.” It’s similar to an Easter Basket but Halloween themed. I decided we would make some additional “Boo Baskets” for kiddos in need.

The baskets are being donated to families at Ryan’s House. Ryan’s house is a hospice facility for children. They help children go through their end of life process comfortably and compassionately and provide their families with comfort and peace along the way. You can visit their website here: https://www.ryanhouse.org/
