Over the past few years, I've been extra passionate about helping children and families in need. When you have children of your own, it's so hard to think about other kids who may be born to unfortunate situations and don't have the most basic necessities like diapers. So, today, I'm starting an Oh Joy Diaper Drive in hopes that (as a community) we can help to provide diapers for so many babies in need. And, as a thank you for donating diapers, I will be raffling off one-on-one consulting sessions with me. Here's how it works…
A few years ago (before babies and a growing business and life took over), I used to offer one-on-one consulting for small businesses to help them with marketing, branding, social media and entrepreneurship questions in general. I LOVE helping other small businesses. But as Oh Joy! has grown, I have had less time to offer personalized sessions. I get questions daily about starting or growing a business, but it usually takes more than one sentence (or emoji) to answer! So, I am raffling an hour-long one-on-one consulting session to a lucky reader as part of this diaper drive I'm hosting for Baby2Baby (who provides basic necessities for families in need).
Here's how to donate diapers and enter to win a session:
1. Purchase one case of diapers to be donated to Baby2Baby through this registry link on Amazon. You can buy as many cases as you want! One case = one entry.
2. Tell your friends if you have anyone else who would want to help out to this great cause. For every 500 cases of diapers donated, I will offer an additional session which means there can be more than 1 winner and more chances to win a session with me!
3. The registry will be open starting today for one week. When it closes, the winner(s) will be chosen at random. We'll contact you to schedule your consulting session with me either through Skype, phone, or in-person if you happen to be in Los Angeles. If you don't have a business, but still want to hang, you can come visit the Oh Joy office, grab some ice cream, or we can even go shopping at the Rose Bowl Flea Market for one hour.
*This is open to anyone, anywhere in the world (as long as you are able to purchase through the Amazon registry).
Sorry for this very long post, but it's something I'm really passionate about—gathering donations for these babies who need them and getting to talk to some of you and help you fulfill your career goals!
