The Mother Pucker Stuffing Party

So as one part of the Mother Pucker project to reclaim Mother's Day winds down, another is getting us all wound up.

The wind down? Last night we finished matching up the last mommas to help each other this Mother's Day. We matched over 400 women who wanted to help, with moms who need a little extra love this. We're already getting stories about people being so awesome to each other that it just makes you want fist pump and then leap about like a delighted unicorn.

So that part of the Mother Pucker project is over. But we're not done yet!

If you want to donate a clean birth kit, click here or here. These kits save the lives of mommas and babies in places like Papua New Guinea and Sierra Leone. In fact, this summer we'll get to see pictures of the moms and babies our kits are helping in West Africa!

Yes! That's why this plan WORKS.
Here's what else we're doing and I really hope that if you live near Washington, DC you'll join us. We're throwing a Mother Pucker Stuffing Party. 'What the hell is she babbling about?', you may be thinking to yourself. 'That sounds porny. AGAIN. What's wrong with her?'

HERE'S WHAT I'M BABBLING ABOUT: We are making Mother's Day gift bags for moms living in domestic violence and homeless shelters in our community. This Friday, May 11th from 4-8pm in Fairfax, VA we're going to be collecting donations and stuffing gift bags.

Come hang with us. Bring your bad self. Bring your kids (there's a playground and Girl Scout troops volunteering to kid wrangle). There will be food. There will not be cocktails. Yes, that makes us sad too.*

Here's what we need to collect for the gift bags:
  • Gift cards to: Target, Walmart, Giant, Safeway, Hair Cuttery, Metro, McDonalds
  • Soap (regular size)
  • Shampoo/conditioner for all hair types (regular size)
  • Chapstick/lip gloss
  • Nail polish/remover
  • body wash/nylon poofy things
  • razors/shaving cream
  • Pens and paper
  • Gum/mints
  • Slippers

Here's the details:
You are totally invited to a Mother Pucker Stuffing Party.
THIS FRIDAY, MAY 11th 4pm-8pm
Fairfax Presbyterian Church
10723 Main Street
Fairfax, VA 22030

Please come and bring donations for Mother's Day Gift Bags
for Moms living in Domestic Violence and Homeless Shelters
in Fairfax and Prince William Counties

*We're holding it at our church because they have space and it's kid friendly and it's free. Downside: no booze. Trust us, there's no getting around it, we've been trying for years. Upside: How cool is that we made fliers talking about Helpful Hookers and Mother Puckers stuffing things and our Pastor was like, "Sounds great - have fun, ladies" without even missing a beat?
