Make a Difference for the Children in Haiti & Win Baby Gear

January 16, 2010

As some of you may remember I gaveaway a Kolcraft Contours Three Wheel stroller from Kolcraft a bit ago on my blog.  I see Kolcraft giveaways all over the place all the time and now it is time for us to give back to Kolcraft.

I was going to sit down and write a big long post but the rep with Kolcraft that I work with, who is amazing BTW watch for more amazing products from them coming soon to Jabbering Jessi, sent me an email with the perfect words so I have decided just to post that.

I wanted to let you know about a silent auction Kolcraft is hosting on our Facebook page to help children in Haiti. We are partnering with the charity KIDS who has a relief fund for Haitian children who are affected by the earthquake. We couldn’t just sit & watch all these images of devastation on TV & not do something so we rolled up our corporate sleeves & decided to do a silent auction. The silent auction features products from our Contours line & all proceeds will go to the KIDS relief fund. It runs just like a silent auction but instead of writing the bid amounts on paper, people post the bid as a comment under our Facebook wall post of the item.

I went and checked out the silent auction and they are doing some pretty great things.  There is the Kolcraft Three Wheel Stroller, there is the Contours Options Tandem stroller, 2 stage infant/toddler mattressContours Classique Bassinet.  The auction is going on all weekend and the min bid has been set and it looked to me like you had to increase by only $1.00.  What a great way to get a new product for your little one all while helping the less fortunate in Haiti.

You can click on any of the items above to be taken directly to that items page and you leave a comment with your bid or you can go HERE to go to the main Kolcraft facebook profile page.
