Blinkbuggy #GiveAMemory Charity Campaign for #GivingTuesday

In our last post, we spoke about giving back and specifically, giving back on December 2nd otherwise known as #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

The goal of #GivingTuesday is to take a break from holiday shopping and raise awareness and funds for those in need. In support of #GivingTuesday, Blinkbuggy is thrilled to be partnering with Baby Buggy®, a non-profit founded by Jessica Seinfeld dedicated to providing families in need with essential equipment, products, clothing, and services, for our #GiveAMemory campaign.


The #GiveAMemory campaign is simple. On December 2nd, for every Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram post you make with the hashtag #GiveAMemory, Blinkbuggy will donate $1 to Baby Buggy®. All you have to do is post one of your favorite memories to your own social media channels with the hashtag #GiveAMemory (and also include @blinkbuggy, @LoveRecycled and #GivingTuesday).

As part of our commitment to this great cause and great organization, we have pledged a minimum donation of $5,000. With one quick and easy action, you can help us double that to $10,000!

As we here at Blinkbuggy reflect on this past year, we have so many things for which to be thankful. We are thankful that we get to work everyday on a product and for a company of which we are proud and passionate. We are thankful for our customers for helping us make Blinkbuggy more than just a dream. Most of all, we are forever thankful for our children and families and their love and support.

With all of these things to be thankful for, we want to give back to those who may not have as much.

Please take a moment on December 2nd, #GivingTuesday, to #GiveAMemory and help us, as a community, help other families in need. To help you get started, below are some sample posts you might consider.

We thank you and wish you Happy Memories!

A New Blinkbuggy Partnership!

We are very excited to announce that Blinkbuggy has partnered with one of our favorite mommy bloggers, Mommy Shorts, to bring you a new series of timely and hilarious emails. Introducing…

Mommy Shorts Milestones, brought to you by Blinkbuggy

By joining forces with Mommy Shorts, we hope to help you remember to collect all the important (big or small!) milestones while adding some laughter to your day through some of Mommy Shorts’ best age-relevant posts.

When you sign up for Blinkbuggy, you will automatically start receiving these emails based on the information you provide.   For example, if your baby is in the 4-6 month range, we’ll remind you this is the time when you may hear your baby’s first real laugh so be on the look out! 

You can start receiving the “Mommy Shorts Milestones, brought to you by Blinkbuggy” emails in two ways:

  • Simply sign up for a free Blinkbuggy account here. That’s it! You’ll automatically start receiving the emails. (This is the one we prefer 🙂 )
  • If you’re not ready to start capturing all of your memories just yet, you can sign up to only receive the emails by completing the sign up form here.

We hope you enjoy these as much as we do and as always, we’d love to hear what you think!

Happy Memories!
