It's been a busy August for everyone involved in Sassy Family. At the end of the month we had our swap in Oakland at the Oakland Baha'i Center and it's going to be our last one (for a while) with Sarah Scarborough. She's expecting baby #3 in October and is preparing for a huge change in her family. Since she loves doing these swaps, she was super excited to do this last one and have a lot of familiar faces come. There were also a lot of new faces, since the event was picked up by an African-American mom's group in the area. Thanks so much to Sarah for her work, along with Rana Chang and Siu Akiula, our connections with the Oakland Baha'i Center. Plans are in the works to host our next swap in November, with new board member Ingrid as the host. Look for details soon!
In Nashville, myself, Colleen (our fabulous parent volunteer), and board member Barbara are getting ready for our next swap on October 23. It's a Sunday this time because the venue that has been donated to us, Main Street Gallery, is in the height of art show season and Sundays were their only available date. Hopefully the event will be a big as the last one with 65 people who attended. Looking forward to seeing everyone at that event.
In Nashville, we are also planning to do small clothing giveaways to needy moms. Partially out of necessity (our storage unit is FULL) and of course to help the community, Sassy Family will be doing giveaways to teen moms through some of the public schools in the area. More info on that will be on the website.
The final thing that I am working on for Sassy Family is our fundraiser. Sassy Family will be doing a GoFund Me fundraiser for one month, September 15-October 15. Funds are needed to continue these events and will be used for advertising, supplies, and storage maintenance in Nashville and Oakland. Look for the link on our website and our Facebook page, but if you'd like to still donate before the GoFund me drive, click on the donate link on our front page!
Thanks for continuing the work of Sassy Family.
