As a member of JOHNSON’S Baby Cares Council, I got to do something so fun and rewarding last night for their Cares program. I gathered up a small group of my sweet neighbors for a Care Card party where they helped me decorate and assemble packages filled with JOHNSON’S baby products as well as our notes of encouragement to send to families right here in our own community. Boulder was especially devastated by the recent flooding here in Colorado and the families who are left without homes and stories of entire neighborhoods destroyed have weighed heavy on all of our hearts. We talked about families who were still living in shelters and had lost everything, and the babies born amidst the chaos and we hoped that the boxes we decorated would cheer them up knowing we were thinking about them.
This week I will hand deliver the packages to the Red Cross in Boulder to make sure they’ll be delivered personally to the families with little ones who need the essentials they didn’t have time to grab on their way out when they had to evacuate their homes.I’m so happy we were able to come together and do something for these families.
Here are a few pics from the evening.
Our packages! The containers are on the left, the boxes containing powder, body wash, shampoo, lotion, and Desitin are on the right, and the decorations we used tare in he boxes in the middle.
The blank cards were decorated then we all added personal messages to the families.
Here’s my husband and daughter. She loved scribbling on the cards with markers.
Our neighbors did such a great job. It was nice seeing them and catching up.
Reading our messages to the families.
Here I am with my husband and daughter. The packages are all filled and decorated and ready to be delivered!
