This is so cool: Hostess With the Mostess featured on Friday Operation Shower, a non-profit organization that throws baby showers and sends “Showers in a Box” for expecting spouses of deployed service people. Being a military wife, and knowing plenty of moms and moms-to-be who are as well, I am moved by the generosity of people who step up to organize these types of programs. So often these expecting moms are away from their families, living in a new place where they hardly know anyone; I can’t imagine what it might be like for an Army family to expect to endure a year+ long deployment knowing a baby is on the way. The thought of just 3 months alone during a hypothetical pregnancy is scary enough!
I have a bit of an inkling to host a fundraiser to raise money and collect products… though you can contribute at the Operation Shower website (click Contribute) in the mean time.
