The holiday season for us is all about giving and as you may know, we are all about supporting organizations that support other moms and families. That’s why we love Share Our Spare, an organization started by moms that Bump Club and Beyond has always supported. If you aren’t familiar with Share Our Spare, it’s an organization that provides new and gently used clothes, toys and supplies to toddlers and infants that may not otherwise have access to them. They were able to help over 10,000 children in 2016 through monetary and supply donations. Around the holidays and throughout the year you’ll see bins at many of our events collecting stuff for this fantastic organization. Their impact on the city has been tremendous and we are so glad to be a small part of it. On Thursday they will be honoring our Founder + CEO Lindsay Pinchuk for her work.
We couldn’t think of a more perfect way to kick off our focus on gratitude at Bump Club and Beyond this holiday season!
Amy Gudgeon, Executive Director of the organization, shared with us why Lindsay is being honored at their gala on Thursday evening. Share Our Spare was started by ten local moms who had a kernel of an idea their extras could be turned into something extraordinary. They understood first hand how difficult being a mom can be even with all the resources at their disposable. Right from the beginning Lindsay supported this idea whole heartedly. She embraced the mission and incorporated “sharing it forward” into her own business model, as she was building Bump Club.
“We are proud to honor Lindsay as an extraordinary champion of moms…all moms. She has supported Share Our Spare through donations, passed along extra items and promoted our work. She has been a true partner from our earliest days.”
