****** May 5, 2020 Update regarding the 8th Annual Egg Hunt******

Due to the Governor’s extended stay at home orders and thus, the LCMC campus being closed to outside events indefinitely – we will not be able to safely gather for the Egg Hunt for the foreseeable future. This saddens us deeply, as our team worked for 8 months planning all of the details, stuffing eggs and was 100% ready to go. We have a storage unit FULL of kid-friendly fun, and it is a bummer to us not to see it all come together.

While the Easter Egg Hunt event was indeed “no refunds,” we went ahead and processed full refunds for general admission because we know that everyone is struggling right now. New Orleans Mom, like many small businesses here in NOLA, depends on ticket sales and other event revenue to stay in business, so while this was a very hard decision, we believe it is the best one amidst this unfortunate situation.

That said, we DO have a storage unit full of incredible swag, $5,000+ (not a typo) in awesome giveaways, 16,000 stuffed eggs with freebies and prizes, as well as hundreds of kid-friendly snacks. If your family feels so compelled and is able to do so at this time, New Orleans Mom will humbly welcome your support. You DID NOT have to have tickets to this event in order to participate or support New Orleans Mom, so you may indeed spread the word.

• Using the links that follow below, you may make a suggested contribution of $10 per child and – by doing so – be eligible to (A) pick up a swag bag stuffed full of the goodies you would have received at the Egg Hunt {trust us we have so much goodness we don’t want going to total waste} and (B) automatically be entered to win one of the 30+ giveaways {see attached}

• Anyone who is interested in supporting New Orleans Mom in this virtual way MUST make their contribution by Friday May 15 ,2020 {while supplies last }. The recommendation is $10/child, and we have – for your convenience – created links to cover 1, 2, 3 or 4 children. There is no limit on swag bags purchased. Please note that New Orleans Mom is an LLC, a small woman-owned business registered in Louisiana, and this this is not tax deductible but a purchase of goods to support a local business

WE ARE NOW SOLD OUT – SALES CLOSED! Thank you for the support!

For those who choose to participate in our “virtual Egg Hunt,” we will reach out separately to give you the details on how to safely and securely pick up your socially distant swag bag AND let you know if you are a lucky giveaway winner. Each swag bag purchased automatically enters you, and you will be able to pick up the bags and giveaway(s) winnings in one stop. You can see a list of the types of swag and giveaways we have ready to hand out below. We will follow all protocol for distancing, etc and will not be mingling or socializing for extended periods of time.

Charity of Choice ::

As always, raffle tickets will be provided in exchange for donations to the Children’s Hospital Art Cart. For every donated item you bring, you will receive one raffle ticket … and there are no limits! We chose this charity because the patients are near and dear to our hearts as mothers. Several NOM team member’s children have used the cart during a hospital stay and everyone agrees it is worth its weight in gold. Because of infection control guidelines, once an item is removed, it is the child’s to keep. Therefore, the supplies constantly need to be replenished.

***All items need to be NEW, in original packaging and unwrapped; no used items are acceptable due to infection control guidelines*
