We all have seasons in our lives – times when we have plenty of extra time and energy to volunteer and give back – and other times when family and work commitments make it impossible to do more than just keep up with your daily life.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to your local chapter or The Mommies Network. We are always so grateful for our volunteers. But even with a great volunteer team, our chapters cannot be successful without an additional key element: an active and engaged membership.

Support Us While You Shop

Christmas is coming and if you are anything like me, your Christmas list is already enough to bankrupt a small country. We know that money can be tight at this time of year, as all of your hard earned dollars go to buy presents for family and friends.

Did you know that you can support TMN and your chapter with the same dollars you use to buy those presents this year?

Well, you can!

Share Your Time and Talents

We know that money can be tight and with fundraisers coming in left and right from the schools, the last thing you need is another candle or bucket of cookie dough. While we do appreciate financial donations (and rely on them to ensure our network remains free for our moms!), we know we would be nothing without the amazing volunteers who donate their time and talents each day to mentor and support our members and volunteers and to administer the various tasks required of a nonprofit organization.

Be a Conversation Starter

Close your eyes.

Remember a time when you were the stranger in the room – whether it was ten years ago in a classroom or two weeks ago at your husband’s company party.

Remember what it felt like to walk into the room, to see the other people in groups, laughing and talking. That unsettling feeling in the pit of your stomach that reminds you that you are the only person here who doesn’t know a single soul.

It Only Takes a Spark!

At The Mommies Network and our chapters, our goal is to build community. We want moms to have a place to go and meet other local moms. We strive to use technology to facilitate in-person connections. We understand that we moms lead busy lives, filled with work, home and family, and it’s tough to take a break – to feel like you deserve a break.

You are here for a reason. You joined our chapter at some point to meet other moms, to find support, to make friends – to connect. You came to our chapter looking for community.

Many moms (like myself) are very concerned about using earth-friendly, natural and organic products in our homes....especially on our bodies. We are always looking for kid and baby friendly products that do not add to the toxic load of our family. I want to know what is in our personal care and skin care products, I want them to be gentle enough for our entire family, and I want them to be all-natural, not full of chemicals. How about you?

Baby Mantra products are just that, all natural,dye free, allergy tested, gluten free and cruelty free.
