Save the date...and your stuff for the 2nd annual uM/Activistas garage sale!
It's a fundraiser for Family Forward Oregon, so, please, don't take that load to Goodwill! Save it for us, instead.
How it works:
You donate all that stuff you just don't need anymore, and we sell it to folks who do. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Family Forward Oregon, a year-old Oregon non-profit (run by Pdx mamas) that is working to build a family-friendly economy in Oregon that fully supports the work of child-raising and family caregiving without jeopardizing economic security.
Garage sale details:
- When? Fri & Sat, August 13 & 14, 9 AM - 4 PM
Where? NE 47th & Siskiyou, 2 blocks S of NE Fremont in Pdx
- What: Your donated baby/kid and non-kid stuff for sale
- Why? To support an amazing new org that is working hard to benefit all Oregon families; in this "economic climate," this is an effective, barn raising approach to fundraising.
- Help! You can donate stuff (save it till August or drop it at one of our drop houses sooner - email us at email@example.com and we'll find one near you), 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.
