We have told you how incredibly proud we are of Mom, Incorporated. Even more so when we are able to use this book to accomplish something good.
It has been a beautiful experience to hear how women have been moved by something within the 192 pages…. to start something of their very own, to push past a current challenge, to make it through the ‘hard stuff’ like accounting and business licensing – or even, to embrace the idea of a family/business juggle, instead of that elusive balance.
But for us – the notion that Mom, Incorporatedcan go even beyond that to ‘give back’ is even more special. In November, on one specific day, we committed a portion of all sales of our book on Amazon to an organization we both
find inspiring: Operation Shower. You buy Mom, Incorporated, we donate to Operation Shower.
Operation Shower provides beautiful baby showers for military moms-to-be who have husbands serving overseas. This amazing non-profit is based in St. Louis as I am, so I am delighted to say, I’ve had the pleasure of working with them for the past few years. Their showers have grown from ‘showers-in-a-box’ delivered to the new mom to full scale events held on military bases all over the country. I most recently attended one late this summer at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina attended by a few dozen expectant Marine Corps wives, as well as the First Lady, Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden and Martha Stewart. The gratitude on the faces of these new moms as they were gifted their ‘showers in a box’ and ‘showered’ with love was beyond compare.
With Aliza’s dad being former military – the decision to support Operation Shower was an easy one. We both feel strongly about the good they are doing on a daily basis.
Aliza and I are thrilled to announce, based on your purchases of our book that special day in November, we will be giving Operation Shower a check for $400.
Thank you for supporting us, for supporting Mom, Incorporated and for supporting Operation Shower. We are so very grateful.
