Do Something Good

According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, domestic violence and sexual assault are pervasive and life-threatening crimes affecting millions of individuals across our nation regardless of age, economic status, race, religion or education. Domestic violence and sexual assault not only severely impact victims but our entire communities and are linked to many other social ills. That’s why The Mommies Network (TMN) will be donating 25 percent of the funds raised from their first Annual National Auction to the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV).

As a member of CharlotteMommies and TriangleMommies, I have donated the gorgeous Sofia Pearl Bib Necklace to the auction! I used to volunteer for a domestic violence and rape crisis group, and have known several women in my friend circle that have been affected by domestic violence. This is an issue that is near and dear to my heart. I urge you to either bid on the items in the auction, or donate something yourself (see info below).

To make this auction a success and bring the greatest benefit to the many women reached by both the NNEDV and TMN they need your support. They are currently seeking donations for the auction which will take place September 5, 2010 – 11, 2010. This online auction will be hosted by MissionFish (a division of eBay) and will be viewable to all 30,000+ of their members as well as the general public. Additionally, a listing of donations will be posted on all of their online sites to encourage their members to participate in the auction and to show their sponsors their appreciation by shopping with their businesses.

Your donation to The Mommies Network National Auction will:

• Benefit the great work of the National Network to End Domestic Violence

• Benefit The Mommies Network and help them to continue to bring encouragement, support, and volunteer opportunities to moms across America

• Benefit your business by putting your product in front of 30,000+ buyers in your target market in addition to countless others who view your auction listing

All auction listings will display a picture of the item being donated along with the logo of the donating business and the business’ website. The auction will be promoted on all of The Mommies Network’s sites, through their blog, and on Facebook, meaning that your donation will guarantee your business outstanding visibility, letting potential customers know that you care about women and mothers everywhere, helping to create loyalty among future customers.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Christine Byrd at Should you choose to donate, please send your donation no later than August 15th to The Mommies Network/ Attn: Christine Byrd/ 2904 Northampton Drive/ Greensboro, NC 27408. Thank you for your support.
