Here at MMB, we know how awesome single moms are; they do it all and often without a break or thanks. Holidays can be a stressful time of year; challenging, emotionally and financially. This Christmas, we felt led to relieve some of that for single moms. We wanted an afternoon where the ladies could be pampered and relax. Single mom 23 memphis 23 also felt inspired to provide a way to relieve some of the financial strain by giving an opportunity to the moms to shop for their children.
We felt it was important for the moms to be able to shop on their own. Our team agreed that it was not only important but imperative for the moms to choose gifts for their own children; because who knows their child better than their mother?!
The week following Thanksgiving, MMB began a toy drive. There were games, art projects, baby and toddler toys, shoes, and even a small basketball hoop! It was an incredible site! Decorated beautifully in silver and gold, it was the perfect backdrop for a relaxing afternoon. Single moms often never get a break, so it was important for the owners Single mom 23 memphis 23 Memphis Moms Blog to provide childcare birth-age 10 for the length of the event.
Upon checking in, the families were escorted to the kid care area where games and activities awaited the children, along with time spent on the outdoor playground. Over sixty kids were entertained while their moms were enjoying a much deserved reprieve. Using the private conference room, consultants of Mary Kay set up 4 stations of makeovers.
It was a room full of laughter as the women explored different colors and skincare tips. Next to the coffee bar, Meredith Garrison of Jamberry Nails set up her station.
Jamberry Nails is known for their quick drying and non-smearing technique of applying fun colors and patterns to nails. The moms got a kick out of perusing her giant book of endless nail choices.
Moms were able to sit in groups receiving their manicures and making new friendships! In another area, you could find Kristy Rinks of Hair Savvy Salon giving Single mom 23 memphis 23 the gift of beautiful hair. One mom took off over a foot of hair and another had a completely new style before the end of the event! Smallcakes Collierville, Frost Bakeshop, Nothing Bundt Cakes and Kroger Bakery all donated an impressive assortment of cookies, mini cupcakes, and slices of decadent cake!
It was all washed down by with some heavenly coffee, courtesy of The Hub Coffee Shop. Bulging bags were proof enough that each of these families would have a magical Christmas this year! In addition to the toys, each mom had the opportunity to win raffle prizes. The ladies from Mary Kay provided two gift certificates, enabling moms to replenish or replace a makeup collection.
The Donut Hutt gifted a complete birthday party for up to 10 kids at their store location in Collierville. These hot ticket items also included two brand new Kindle Fires, which were sure to surprise any kid on Christmas morning! Another major thank you goes to our writing staff and event volunteers, who enabled everything to run smoothly and efficiently.
We also greatly appreciated Annette Peagler of Channel News 24 for her coverage of the event, and of course ALL of those who were generous enough to donate toys. in. Log into your. Forgot your password? Password recovery. Recover your password. Submit An Event. Get help.
