Holiday project 2006: Good Shepherd Services

Last year, my family and some Celebrity Baby Blog readers adopted a five families from Red Hook, Brooklyn for the holidays and I did all the shopping. This year, I don’t have the time to shop (it’s a lot harder shopping with a 1 year old than a 3 month old) plus the site is now my full-time job. This year I am donating over half of the proceeds from our annual Holiday Shopping Guide to the agency. I expect to raise a couple thousand dollars from this.

I am always looking to do more.

If you are interested in being a Family Santa this year or sending some clothes, toys, art supplies, etc. please email Lily no later than December 8th at

If you are a company that has maternity, baby, and child-related products, we can offer you a free advertorial post in exchange for a minimum of $450 of product to be given to the agency for their clients. The post can highlight the items being donated to the agency, which will give our readers a way to learn more about your company while letting them know that you give back to the community. Please email Danielle now as space is very limited and the shopping season is approaching!

So far sponsors include Maclaren, Micralite, Zutano, Scandinavian Child, Bumble Bags, Pediped, Isabella Oliver, Bubunja Baby, Beautiful Futures, Cute as Buttons, Lil Dipper, Cute Baby Shoes, My Little Ducks, No Slippy Hair Clippy, 1 in the Oven Maternity, Isabooties, Chiarakruza, Until Kara, and many more!
