Win a tote bag full of goodies, change the world

Buy a raffle ticket to win this tote!The raffle has ended. We are proud (and very grateful) -- we raised $625 for Charity Water, which is $225 OVER our goal. Heartfelt thanks to all who supported us! 

In mid-November I'm heading to Palm Springs for Camp Mighty. I am SO excited about this event...in a way I've never been about other "business" travel.

The organizers and bulk of the attendees are members of the blogging/social media community, but this is not a blogging/social media conference, per se. The focus of the gathering is life balance and change.

Change has been on my mind quite a bit this last year, both personally and professionally. I've been awed by the power of efforts such as ONEMoms, Every Mother Counts, and the mobilization underway right now to help Amit Gupta find a bone marrow donor.

It's not Pollyanna to say that individual voices, working together, have the power to change the world.

The organizers of Camp Mighty have worked a charity project into the event: we've all been placed in teams, and our goal is to raise enough money to cover each team member's $200 donation. All funds raised go to Charity Water, a non-profit organization that brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

I've teamed up with my dear friend Christine Koh of Boston Mamas to give you a fun way to help us reach our fundraising goal: a raffle! (Thank you, Amy, for the great idea.)

The prize: this amazing, overstuffed tote bag full of lovely goodies, valued at over $350.

Asha, this is such a great idea, and charity:water is a great cause for Campy Mighty to donate. I love it when powerful women get together to use their influence for good. There really is nothing quite as unstoppable. :)

All the tips I've gotten are certainly worth a $2 donation, I love Parent Hacks! You have a good heart, Asha.

That is incredibly kind, Homa. Thank you so much.
