Giving Back – The Classy Mommy Cause
Plain and simple. Parents spend big bucks on their children. Research shows that in 2005 the US Retail market for Infant, Toddler and Preschooler products reached over $29 Billion dollars. As a Mom, I thought it would be creative if I could find a way for my Classy Mommy website to help harness some of this spending and re-direct dollars to children in need in both the US and throughout the world.
When you shop through our affiliate marketing partners, Classy Mommy donates a portion of the proceeds we receive to charities for children in need. In 2008, Classy Mommy donated $1,000 to Project Peanut Butter which Walmart also matched to make this a $2,000 donation. Project Peanut Butter is a non profit working in southeast Africa to help thousands of malnourished children annually. For only $15, Project Peanut Butter can provide a malnourished child with Ready-to-Eat therapeutic food. Efforts are focused on the nation of Malawi, one of the least developed nations in the world with per capita income of $44 per year. Malnutrition affects 70% of all children in the nation of Malawi with an estimated 13% of children dying before the age of five years old from malnutrition. We look forward to continuing to give back to this incredible organization.
