Celebrity Moms Design Baby Blankets...

Maybe a little off topic... from my normal gab, but hey I like variety... and always a good cause.

Toys“R”Us has partnered with Save the Children on a new philanthropic campaign called Bundled in Hope to provide blankets to babies in need in impoverished areas in the United States.
Kicking off the campaign, the Toys“R”Us Children’s Fund donated $250,000 to Save the Children’s U.S. programs but they have also organized a great charity auction involving celebrity moms.
One-of-a-kind baby blanket designs by Marcia Cross, Jamie Lee Curtis, Isla Fisher, Jennifer Garner, Jennie Garth, Melissa Joan Hart, Julianne Moore, Kyra Sedgwick, Niki Taylor and Kerri Walsh will be auctioned on eBay, with all proceeds benefiting the campaign, between Mother’s Day and July 11.

Even if you’re not interested in bidding on a blanket, you can take part in this campaign by donating as little as a dollar at Toysrus.com/BundledinHope.
Also, through July 11, if you have registered for baby gifts at Babies”R”Us, you can request donations for the campaign from friends and family who are shopping the registry.

Nice! I will be sure to give a donation!
