Come and join us for a fundraiser with Tropical Smoothie Cafe! 15% of your sales will go to MOMS Club of Front Royal and our Clean Birth Kits service project (be sure to mention this fundraiser!). Tropical Smoothie Cafe has great variety of menu items for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a post-workout refuel. I am very excited to indulge with the Hummus Veggie toasted wrap (minus the pepperjack cheese - of course!) which I would enjoy with the Lean Machine smoothie (dairy free!). You can view their menu online and then check the nutritional calculator to see what items you want to add or change to customize your order to your liking!
I love that the fundraiser goes all day so that I can bring my guys in for an early lunch before the pool or a summery dinner after a day at the park. The kids menu options allow you to pick a fruit, chips or cookie to go along with their meal (and your sanity level). I hope to see you all there!
Did you know that every minute a woman dies of complications related to pregnancy and childbirth? 99% of these deaths occur in developing nations. For every woman who dies in childbirth, another 30 women incur injuries and infections which are often preventable. (Source: World Health Organization.)
The MOMS Club of Front Royal, VA is excited to announce that we are working on a service project to help reduce maternal and infant mortality in developing nations. We found a program that provides Clean Birth Kits to very poor areas around the world. The Clean Birth Kits include eight simple items in a plastic bag including a piece of soap, plastic gloves, squares of gauze, cotton string, a utility blade, plastic sheeting, a clean cloth to wrap the baby, and a pictorial diagram.
As stay at home moms, this project is very dear to our hearts. As Americans we have access to state of the art medical services. These small bags of supplies could help ensure that moms in developing nations will survive the birth of their child to raise them into adulthood.
Please consider donating supplies, gift cards, and/or money to help the MOMS Club achieve the initial goal of 250 Clean Birth Kits by the end of July 2012. The MOMS Club of Front Royal, VA is a 501(c)(3) publicly-supported charity registered with the IRS. As such, your donations may be tax deductible, check with your tax advisor.
Thank you in advance for your support with a life saving project!
