Hey Everyone! I am so happy to announce that Youth For Christ Lakeshore Teen Moms (a non-profit group that serves teen moms in the Holland, MI and surrounding areas) won the Bummis Holiday Give-away! EcoBuns nominated this group for the contest because we totally believe in the efforts that the group makes in building community for a group of ladies who begin their motherhood experience in one of the least easy ways - as a teenager. These girls' lives change in the blink of an eye, going from hangin with friends and attending school, to getting up to feed and care for an infant in the middle of the night. The stress of being a new mom is huge even for an adult (I was 28 when I had my first and it was a huge adjustment at first!). Youth for Christ Teen Moms Group helps moms adjust to the stressful changes in their lives and offers assistance in meeting physical and emotional needs. I was recently at a MOPS meeting and saw two of the previous moms of teen moms speak. Their stories touched me and I am so happy that they are able to take the gift from Bummis and use it to their advantage. Bummis is such a wonderful and thoughtful company to work with, they have that personal caring touch that I really appreciate in business. CONGRATS TEEN MOMS!
