Nominate a Mama
Nominate a Mama
I am fortunate enough to do what I love every day - BE A MUMMY! - oh, and run my own handmade business! Thanks to Whoopsie Daisie I have met, spoken to and crossed paths with some incredible women that I otherwise would never have known and I am so grateful!
'Nominate a Mama' came about from something I posted in my Instagram stories... I'd posted asking for suggestions and recommendations and I got speaking to one lady... I learnt she was a single Mummy with two 10 month old twins and three older children too - she was about to return to work in the evenings to bring more money in. I thought 'WOW - this woman is incredible!' so I asked for her address so I could send her a little something as a small pat on the back for working so hard for her little people! A 'Random Act of Kindness' #RAOK
She then went on to explain that she'd been having a tough day and that this was just the pick-me-up she needed - which made me realise - if I can do something to put a smile on a strangers face, then why shouldn't I?
The following day I wrote on my Instagram stories again, explaining how I wanted to reach out to more incredible Mamas who may need a little pinch of magic, a virtual hug or a big reminder that they are so much more than 'just' a Mama! And the response I got was incredible!!!
More Mummies telling me their tales and struggles they've overcome, other small businesses showing support and saying how they'd love to get involved! So with a response like that - I just had to do this right away [and if you've made it this far reading - well done - I'm quite the waffler!]
So here is NOMINATE A MAMA - each month I want you amazing people to nominate Mums you know that are doing an amazing job, have had a tough time or need a little reminder that they're just bloody brilliant, and at the end of each month I will pick one Mama to send a little parcel out to. It might just be a handwritten card, or a teething necklace, or a combination of gifts from other businesses, or a box of chocolates - but it'll be a lovely little #RAOK from me and you!
I'll also feature your reason for nominating on my blog [though I won't mention any names] and the fabulous lady at 'Isabella and Us' has agreed to include something each month too!
Thank you for reading, now what are you waiting for... GET NOMINATING!
