At Smarty Pants, we know being a mom is much more than a job. It’s a “full-time-never-get-a-break-don’t-put-that-in-your-mouth-no-means-no-lifestyle” filled with ups and downs, laughs and tears and memories by the minute. Even when you have the proper “equipment”, motherhood can be confusing and completely overwhelming. Can you imagine what motherhood feels like to those women who have nothing? No Bumbo, no posh diaper bag, no bottle warmer . . . nothing. Just a precious baby, and hope.
The Smarty Team is proud to announce the formation of a “perfect partnership”, Baby Bundles and Charlotte Smarty Pants!
For those of you who have not heard of Baby Bundles yet, where have you been?!! This amazing charity was formed by three incredible moms, Emily Harry, Heather Leavitt and Cat Long. These ladies share a common bond and a desire to give back. Together they created “Baby Bundles”, a nonprofit dedicated to providing underprivileged mothers with newborn essentials to help alleviate some of the stresses that come with new motherhood. Baby Bundles aims to provide a better start for those in need. Recipient mothers will be provided with a “bundle” of newborn clothes, warm blankets and an interactive newborn toy. Each bundle will be packaged with a blessing card and essentials for six months.
Baby Bundles will be “launching” at Presbyterian Main Hospital this Tuesday, Feb. 8th at 1pm. Emily, Cat, and Heather will be presenting the first bundle to a new mom and baby as well as delivering 25 bundles to the hospital. The Smarty team will be by their side to witness this amazing kick-off and cheer-on our sisters at Baby Bundles.
We are thrilled to support this organization to truly make a difference in the lives of new mommies! Stay tuned for more announcements and events to support Baby Bundles! Welcome to the Smarty Family!!
