Save the date: urbanMamas is havin' a garage sale
Every summer I look forward (yes, it's true) to Portland's neighborhood garage sales because there's so much great used stuff in one place. Well, if real neighborhoods can hold such great garage sales, why not our virtual neighborhood? Plus, this one has an excellent twist: it's a benefit.
Here's how it works: you donate all that stuff you just don't need anymore and we sell it. Proceeds will be donated to Family Forward Oregon, a budding non-profit that is likely to benefit all Oregon mamas (and papas) in the years to come.
- When? Saturday, August 22nd from 9 till 3
Where? Cafe Au Play's excellent parking lot on SE Division & 58th, just across from Atkinson Elementary
- What: Your donated stuff for sale
- Help! You can donate stuff (save it till August or drop it at one of our drop houses sooner), work the sale, or bake for the inevitable kid-run lemonade stand (or all of the above!)
- Questions? Leave a comment here and we'll reply, or get in touch directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is just a heads up so you can plan to donate, bake and/or shop. And of course, help us spread the word in the meantime. As the date nears we'll provide more details.
