“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kmart. I received product samples and a travel stipend to attend an event, and I received a promotional item to thank me for participating and a donation was made on my behalf to March of Dimes.”
On April 26th ClassyBlackGirl.com and #TeamKmart headed over to the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco on a beautiful and mild day! While we had a good time and enjoyed the sunshine and fellowship, we were there to walk for the babies! This walk will be held in over 900 cities across the United States!
We grabbed some fruits and water for the long six mile trek and walked!
When I started telling my friends and family that I would be walking with #TeamKmart for the March of Dimes so many of my friends, family members and Sorority sisters were impressed because their families had benefited from The March of Dimes. I was impressed that Kmart is the number one corporate sponsor for the March of Dimes and has been for over 4 decades raising well over 114 million dollars to help advance the critical work done for newborns!
I was really excited that the entire event was big and diverse! There were so many people from all different backgrounds that were coming together to support a common cause.
Black Greek Letter Organizations Walked for the Babies
The Ladies of Zeta Phi Beta and Sigma Gamma Rho were joined by the gentlemen of Phi Beta Sigma and Alpha Phi Alpha and walked the beach while teaching their children that humanity and public service comes first!
I walked with a good friend of mine, Andrea, and we spoke about having our own children one day and how important the March of Dimes is! We also enjoyed the scenery and even got FREE HUGS from a walker named Stephen from Napa!
When we made our way back to the home base we were relived that we had made it the whole 6 miles, even taking the steps up to scenic locations and enjoying other walkers! There was nothing so wonderful as the amazing catered food that greeted us when we got back!
We ate well and hung out with a high school friend of mine before we left!...I was so surprised to see her!
I encourage YOU to give back and join the local March of Dimes where you are AND be sure and give!
