I am hosting the First Annual Michigan Natural Mama Festival that will be held this summer! It will be held in Chelsea, Michigan. ~Vendors,Raffles,Workshops,Entertainment and more!~
All proceeds will benefit a non-profit that supports modest income women and promotes natural childbirth. I need volunteers! If anyone is interested in helping out, please email me here;

Hi!
We plan to have some musical entertainment;raffling off of an organic cotton layette set,cloth diapers, a sling and some other goodies;bake sale;vendors of ap friendly products;information booths; a few workshops (baby wearing demo,cloth diaper demo etc),fresh smoothie and tea bar,free door prizes(a small entrance fee will be charged), and lots more. I have a small crew of helpers right now,so I am not exactly sure at this point what I will need help with. When it gets closer i will know more. It would just be nice to have some extra helpers to call if needed.

**If it does well, I'd love to try and do one in Lansing! Do you think there would be alot of interested mamas?
This is a non-profit endevor. All money collected will go to a non-profit organization dedicated to helping low income women. Thanks!~C

That sounds really great--I'll keep my eye out for it...if nothing else, I'll plan to attend it! And if you need extra help, feel free to e-mail or PM me and I'll be happy to give you my info so you can call if you need help as it gets closer.

Do you know what weekend? Wouldn't it be cool if we could somehow combine this with the MDC 1st Annual Camping Weekend that I'm trying to organize?

Chandi...You can read a little more about the camping weekend here and here.

So far, looks like the weekend of July 12-15. We haven't settled on a location yet, because most of the parks aren't taking group reservations until after April 1st.

If you want to brainstorm, and maybe think about combining your event w/the camping trip, feel free to pm me.
