B and I have joked a bit about how we find ourselves, two introverts, smiling at babies and introducing ourselves to their parents as though we've been social butterflies our whole lives. Eh, we're probably still a little awkward, but hey! these people have babies! they know what we're going through!
It is through one of these new mom friends that I learned about Toots Fore Tufts, an organization raising money for Tufts' Neuro-Oncology Patient Care. Created in memory of a friend that lost the battle with brain cancer, their mission is to provide support for both patients and their families who experience financial hardship due to the cost of travel for treatment.
This is where Huggies comes in. To promote the Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diaper, they are running the #UltraHug Contest to award grants to community projects and organizations. How cool is that?
While my city has many awesome projects that I'd be proud to support, in the spirit of the contest I decided to choose an organization which was started by a friend in my newest community – the mom community.
Do you have a project you'd like to support? Here are the details:
From April 20th until June 25th, Huggies will be accepting all selfies of you and your baby with the hashtag #UltraHug, and featuring them in a collage on the campaign landing page. On July 6th, voting will begin to narrow down the 20 finalists to 10 winners who will win a $2,000 grant from Huggies for their nominated community initiative.
