Hi- I live in Palo Alto, CA and am part of the Palo Alto/ Menlo Park Parents Club which seems a lot like your group and am a mom of three. I have a couple of things I'm interested in connecting on: I recently started working part time for an internet start-up called Center'd, which is extremely useful in helping busy moms organize and plan online (I used the site for a school picnic, liked it so much that I wanted to work for them!) To that end, I'd love to introduce you to the site, which is completely free to users and can help cut down on the back and forth emailing that takes place when trying to organize anything kid related.
Secondly, I am looking for someone in the Portland area for a part time (10 hour a week) position that would be perfect for a mom with young kids. I'm simply interested in spreading the word about Center'd which can also help schools and other organizations handle all of their volunteer sign up's online! Please get back to me if you want any further information. I have a job description that I can email. I hope it is okay to post here, I am just trying to think of different ways to get in touch with the exact group that we're after - we really can help! You can also forward my email address to any one who might want to know more. Thanks so much for your time!
