Once in a while, I get to do the awesomest of things on the blog.
Yesterday, JoJo Maman Bebe approached me and asked me if I would be interested in becoming a blogger ambassador for their amazing campaign, From A Mother To Another and help spread the word about helping children in need.
I nearly wept at the privilege of being able to lend my blogging voice and raise awareness of two worthwhile causes. Syrian children, for whom the campaign is trying to raise clothing, have been weighing on my heart heavily for the past year. Emma and I spread the word about #ShareTheMeal app at Christmas and shared our pennies in December with Syrian refugee children. Local children who live in poverty are also a genuine cause of concern for me and we always donate Emma’s small clothing to local charities who try to make their lives a bit better.
JoJo Maman Bebe are currently encouraging mums out there to spare a thought and an outgrown outfit and spread some love to other mothers whose children are in desperate need of warm, decent clothing. They are also extremely generous and will reward every mother who participates in the campaign with a £5 gift voucher to be spend in store on any £35 or over purchase.
In Northern Ireland, JoJo Maman Bebe is located on 629 Lisburn Road so a weekend trip into Belfast can become an opportunity to bless a fellow mother and her precious child in need.
We regularly donate Emma’s clothing when she outgrows it but I am sure we will be able to put together two outfits for a couple of special little girls somewhere in the UK or on the Syrian border. Emma will help me prepare the outfits as I want her to know from now that the life she lives is a privilege not many little girls can enjoy these days.
Will you help too?
