I’m B A C K from blog fog! Can’t seem to find my blog swag so to speak. However, this Haiti Earthquake has gotten me motivated to blog. So many of our MOONBABY workers are Haitian-Americans that have become like family to me over the 15 years we have worked together. I have watched their children grow, seen them prosper in this country sometimes working 2 or 3 jobs. These are some of the most hard-working, loyal, kind people I have ever met. Unfortunately, their homeland is hell-on-earth (before the earthquake!). Poor, corrupt, uneducated, hopeless!
This country has had the worst of everything, floods, hurricanes, fires and now this epic disaster.
Each day when one of our worker’s come in with stories about whole families that have perished in
a collapsed house, to family members that can’t be found, to severe injuries with no adequate medical care, my heart breaks! We have designed 2 MOONBABY pins to help raise money for this shredded country, emailed friends and family to
make donations, pray, what else to do?
Perhaps many thousands will have to die to bring
the world’s attention and resources to help. Maybe out of the ashes a new, stronger Haiti will be born. HELP how you can.
I am a first-time Blogger, egged on by a husband who insists that there are folks out there who are actually interested in MOONBABIES CHAT.. so bear with me as I learn the art of the BLOG! For the handful of you who are not familiar with us, let me give you a brief history.
Anyway, the first MOONBABY was conceived during the Blizzard of 1996 with the intention of keeping my 2 children entertained. I was the most creative at-home mom with the most abundant “craft room” so I became the designated “foul weather shelter” for every stray child in the neighborhood..In an effort to keep the little shavers busy, I whipped out some wire, and beads and set about creating “mini me’s” for the kids, stuck a pin on the back and sent them on their chilly little way…Family and friends began calling to request the little “people pins” for gifts. When a local store contacted me to make 100 pins for Christmas, I knew I was on to what would become my life’s work!
Almost 11 years later, MOONBABIES has grown into a vibrant, dynamic company with a very extensive product line! The foundation of our mission has remained the same; produce high-quality, fashion forward accessory items exclusively in the United States by a very loyal and dedicated team of “MoonMoms” who can work at home and care for their children. Now, get a good night’s sleep and drink a few Red Bulls and tune in tommorrow for more about this facinating company and it’s truly interesting Chief Poobah!
