Recently, our sponsor Yahoo! came up with a cool idea: Ask our
readers to make Yahoo! your homepage this week, and for every
change, they’d make a $1 donation to our favorite charity for
us up to $10,000.
We were like, heck yeah. The Yahoo! home page is so fun anyway.
(Who isn’t addicted to their trending topics category? And the customized content? It’s like they know we’re addicted to Real Housewives.)
Because we especially love charities that help out moms and families, we instantly thought of Baby Buggy.
Founded 10 years ago by the amazing Jessica Seinfeld, Baby Buggy works with community organizations to give gently used baby essentials to families in need. It’s always our first recommendation when our readers wonder where to donate their strollers and outgrown baby layette in urban areas. Even better, they’re now working in six other cities beyond New York, so they can spread the love even further.
But then, Yahoo! did one better–a guaranteed donation of $10,000 to our charity Baby Buggy, no matter what.
In return, we’d really love to send Yahoo! some love right back as our way of saying, hey, thanks for supporting moms. And we’d be so so so very thrilled if you’d help us. Here’s how:
1. Make Yahoo! your homepage by clicking on this link. Simple. While you’re there, you can search for Baby Buggy and see some of the fantastic things they’ve been doing, and some of the cool celebs they work with.
If you happen to get on board, we’d love you to a comment here or tweet us us @coolmompicks with hashtag #babybuggy so we can say thanks back to you. Don’t be surprised if you get a thanks from Jessica Seinfeld too. She’s cool like that.
