Thank You BSM Media For Supporting Local Schools

Not too long ago, I had the chance to review Zhu Zhu Pets . . . one of this season's hottest toys. This opportunity was presented by MomSelect, one of the properties of BSM Media.

Soon after, another wonderful opportunity presented itself. Maria Bailey and her team at BSM Media were working on coordinating a limited number of toy donations for fall fundraisers at schools across the country. All I had to do was provide general information about my son's school to be considered. When I found out I had made it onto the list, I was so excited, as was the school's PTO.

After that, we had to be patient. I did not know which toy companies BSM Media had been working with on this worthy project. Then one day a package arrived and I discovered that we had been given a Zhu Zhu Pets Starter Kit, which includes one hamster, a ramp, and a spiral slide. I think the president of the PTO nearly fainted when I told her. Unfortunately the fall fundraiser for green and fair trade products had fallen short of the fundraising goal. We are certain that a raffle for this starter kit will more than make up for the difference.

Thank you to the makers of Zhu Zhu Pets and BSM Media for giving my son's school this wonderful opportunity to raise some much-needed funds. I am happy to report that a flyer promoting this raffle will go home with each of the 475 students. If I am privy to the information, I will gladly post an update after the raffle has ended as to how much funds the PTO was able to raise with this one toy donation.
