On Tuesday Kolcraft joined Operation Shower to celebrate a Star Spangled Baby Shower for military moms-to-be. It was an amazing day in Chicago where 40 military moms came together to celebrate their pregnancies. What exactly is Operation Shower? It is an non-profit organization that celebrates and honors military families by throwing baby showers for moms-to-be. It is an opportunity to ease the burden of deployment (many of these moms are going through pregnancy, labor & delivery by themselves), to celebrate their babies with wonderful baby showers delivering high-quality products and to connect military moms with other military moms so they don’t feel so alone.
Kolcraft has partnered with Operation Shower for over a year, but this was their first shower in Chicago and we were super excited to attend. As we talked with the moms we were so touched by their stories of bravery and love.
The moms were showered with star spangled swag and were excited to receive a Kolcraft Wonderbug Baby Activity Center and a Wonderbug plush toy. Two moms also won a Contours Classique 3 in 1 bassinet!
Kolcraft was honored to be part of this special baby shower and look forward to showering many more military moms with love and great baby products! You can be part of Operation Shower by donating. Every little bit helps!
