The Changing Room

On 21 April I wrote a post about Cristina Carlino and She Colors my Day, a worldwide movement with the goal of finding a cure for cancer. The campaign was inspired by a mother’s love for her daughters and has become a global effort that benefits Susan G. Komen for a Cure and The Entertainment Industry’s Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund.

In an effort to continue giving back, Cristina has published an interactive journal called The Changing Room:  A Mother’s Journal of Gratitude to Her Little Girl.  This interactive journal provides a way for you to capture memories of your babies before they fade.  We all know how quickly time passes and how fleeting the memories can be…  This journal provides a special place for you to secure letters, drawing and memories ~ a priceless keepsake for you to give to your daughter (imagine this being her something old on her wedding day).

More than providing you with memories, 100% of the net proceeds from the purchase of this interactive journal will go to Joyful Heart Foundation.  Founded by actress Mariska Hargitay, the mission of  Joyful Heart Foundation “… is to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse and shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues.”

To celebrate mothers and daughters as well as the release of The Changing Room, Cristina is hosting a Wishes for My Little Girl Photo Contest on her Facebook fan page. Five winners will receive a copy of The Changing Room.  To participate, all you have to do is post a picture of your favorite little girl and then state your biggest wish for her.  Winners will be determined by the number of “Likes” they receive from other Cristina Carlino fans.  So encourage your friends and family to vote for you.  And hurry, the contest ends 10 May 2010.

Disclosure:  I did not receive any compensation for this post.  This post is my entry into a blogging contest sponsored by MomSelect.  The winner will receive a free copy of The Changing Room.
