{Giving Back} Operation Give Thanks :: Sneak Peek of Fall Collection for Kids

One of our favorite charity organizations is Operation Shower. Operation Shower is a non-profit organization that recognizes and honors the sacrifices military families make by producing and coordinating unit-wide baby showers and "showers in a box" for pregnant or expecting military families in a deployment or high stress situation.

Kim worked with Operation Shower on the "A is for Apple" Shower last year, which turned out wonderful! Many deserving moms-to-be enjoyed an amazing event styled by Chris at Celebrations at Home! Kim was thrilled when Amy from Stem Parties, Chief Event Planner of OS, asked her to create a collection for the next Operation Shower Fundraising Event, Operation Give Thanks! Operation Shower is partnering again with the March of Dimes to put together a Nationwide Fundraising Event beginning October 6th and running through the holiday season.
More details coming soon on how YOU can get involved!

For now, above is a little sneak peek of one of the items that will be available as a FREE DOWNLOAD so you can participate in an event of your own for Operation Give Thanks!
Other fabulous designers involved with this event include Hostess with The Mostess, Paper & Cake, Parties by Hardie and Paper & Pigtails! We can't wait to see what all of these fabulous ladies came up with! Stay tuned....

I've never heard of operation shower, but I absolutely love that it exists! Being a military wife, it's so touching to read about! Love it!

Wow! this is amaizing! Last year I was seven months pregnant when my husband deployed to Afghanistan and it was probably the hardest time of my life. THANK YOU! for doing this.

I just want to say thank you to Kim and her staff. I am a military wife and I know first hand how important it is to help other military families. It's easy to feel alone but knowing there are such good people like Kim giving back to the military makes me feel so blessed.

So, THANK YOU!
