It is crazy to think it is already time for our annual holiday party! Please join us this Thursday, from 3-6 PM at the retail store for some light holiday treats, drinks, crafts for the kids, and one free picture with an old-fashioned Saint Nick. Additional pictures will be for sale. There will also be a book signing with Jane and Cindy if purchasing a book or two is still on your to-do list!
This year, we are also excited to announce a new nonprofit partnership with Baby Bundles, an organization whose mission helps mothers and babies living in poverty.
When friends Emily Harry, Heather Leavitt and Cat Long met each other as a group for the first time in the beginning of 2010, they had one thing in common: they each suffered the loss of an infant. These tragedies helped their friendships with one another grow, as they found hope in one another. This trauma helped them recognize a need to provide a better start for mothers and babies living in poverty in Charlotte, which initiated passion in starting Baby Bundles.
Through partnerships with Presbyterian Women’s Center and Nurse Family Partnership, Baby Bundles identifies mothers in need, and gives them a “bundle” full of the essentials for the first six months of their baby’s life. The mothers receive newborn clothes, warm blankets, books and interactive newborn toys. In the words of the Baby Bundles’ founders, “We see this as a gift from our children to theirs.”
As our nonprofit partner for this year’s holiday party, Circa would like to invite all of our guests to bring gently used or new baby blankets and books, or monetary donations to support their mission.
Thank you, in advance, for supporting this wonderful nonprofit and the meaningful work they do in our community. See you Thursday!
