Two Little Fish Collaboration and Giveaway!

If you played in the Instagram Round Robin giveaway this weekend, then you already know we have some more surprises waiting for you this week, and here's one of them!  We have teamed up with another really amazing family-run small business, and I'm excited to share a little bit more about them and their mission.  Plus, they are generously sponsoring a giveaway for one of their large wetbags!

The Two Little Fish large wetbag perfectly fits a Spray Pal all the way inside!

I first discovered Two Little Fish on Instagram.  I was actually on the hunt for a good quality wetbag that would fit the Spray Pal inside for a new, fashionable, but made in the USA option for our bundles.  I just happened to see one of their wetbags in a feed somewhere and I instantly fell in love!  The colors and patterns were so bright and cute, they seemed perfect.  Then I went to their site and read more about who they were and what they were doing.  You guys, this family is running their entire business to benefit others.  

I immediately contacted them and heard back right away from a very sweet and excited Nicole, who is the mom behind this company.  She was just as excited as I was about the opportunity to work together, but they hadn't really done the wholesale thing before, and let me tell you...I knew EXACTLY what she was going through!  When Spray Pal first started, we didn't even think we could handle wholesale.  We were choosing to make our product here in the USA with high quality, BPA/phthalate-free, recycled polyethylene which, of course, is costly, and we were still (and still ARE to this day) adding the clips onto the Spray Pals in our home garage!  But, we've been able to make this work with numerous (and AMAZING) retailers in the US and Canada!  

After numerous emails back and forth, Nicole and I were able to figure out a way to make this happen for you all! So, for a VERY limited time and in VERY limited quantities, we are going to have the Two Little Fish large wetbag in 3 different colors available for purchase!  And, because Nicole is so awesome, they are going to do a giveaway for you guys as well!

You will notice that the wetbags may cost a bit more than you're used to, but here's why:

100% of their profit is given away and put back into the community via partners that assist their mission in Putting Poverty To Bed.  How do they do this?

1.  Your item contains Ghanian fabric which has been purchased straight from the village women in Ghana, Africa.  This gives them sustainable income.

2. You will be sending a mattress to an AIDS orphan in South Africa through Horizon International with the purchase of your item.

3.  The rest of the profit from the wetbag you have bought will be put BACK into local and global organizations that help Put Poverty To Bed!  It's really THAT cool.

Feel good about the products you spend your money on.  100% purpose, 100% handmade in the USA.

There's a great video on their website that shows a bit more about their mission so you can see the big picture as to how this business is helping so many others others.  My favorite quote is: "The mission is to, at every facet of the process, benefit someone other than ourselves."  I truly admire the work this family is doing and I'm honored to be able to support them in their mission.

ABC Kids Natural Parenting Scavenger Hunt!

Spray Pal is super excited to be a part of the most exciting scavenger hunt since you were in 5th grade (or possibly later if you have a fun bachelorette party, but maybe we won't go there ;) )...the Natural Parenting Scavenger Hunt at the ABC Kids expo! This multi-brand event/giveaway is being organized by our friends at Super Undies and Kim Rosas from Dirty Diaper Laundry!  With a pair like that, you know it's going to be amazing.

So, what does this entail?  Well, if you are a retailer, blogger, or anyone else associated with the baby industry, and you're planning to attend this year's ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, you are going to want to pick up your copy of the scavenger hunt clue list.  You can print one from home (shoot us an email if you'd like a copy) or pick one up from the Super Undies booth at ABC Kids. Then you visit all the natural parenting brands listed (including Spray Pal at booth #5143 of course. I ain't to proud to shamelessly plug) and turn in your completed stamp sheet for a chance to win some AWESOME prizes for your store and followers.
So cool to be partnering with so many fabulous brands as we help #MAKECLOTHMAINSTREAM

Not attending ABC Kids this year?  No worries!  We've got you covered.  Starting Sunday morning, you can head over to Kim's blog at www.dirtydiaperlaundry.com and enter to win via rafflecopter.  Yes, you'll miss out on meeting the Spray Pal crew as well as all the other super cool natural parenting brands that are participating, but we can't have it all. ;)

We are bursting with anticipation as we pack our bags and load up the cars for our first ever ABC Kids booth.  If your favorite local cloth diaper retailer isn't carrying the Spray Pal splatter shield yet, be sure to let them know that they can stop by and see one in action (yes, we are bringing a real working toilet with diaper sprayer to demo the Spray Pal!) at our booth #5143 on the first floor in the ABC Kids Expo Sept 7-10, 2014
