19 Women Entrepreneurs Host Contest to Give Back to Mothers

To celebrate moms-to-be this Mother’s Day, Boogie Wipes® has organized a “Mom-Invented Boogie Baby Shower” where one lucky expectant mommy will receive a party in her honor valued at over $5,000. This amazing shower will include a cake, flowers, décor, and shower games for 25 guests, and $1000 in gift certificates to Babies”R”Us, Target, Walmart and Diapers.com. 25 guests will also receive swag bags full of mom-invented products each of which were created to help make Mom’s life easier. The contest begins April 10th, 2009 and runs through May 9th, 2009. The winner will be announced at www.boogiewipes.com on Mother’s Day, May 10th, 2009.

My Plate-Mate is one of the Mom Invented contributors slated to be included. As a meal time accessory, My Plate-Mate was designed to help toddlers learn to eat using a utensil while eliminating messy spills and clean up for parents. Launched on a small marketing budget in 2008, Co-Founders Michele Wong and Paige Akabane found that the word of mouth from Moms was instrumental to My Plate-Mate’s rapid success. “Mothers form knowledgeable, tight knit and opinionated groups,” explains Wong. As Mom recommendations for My Plate-Mate spread through blogging and social media networks, sales quickly began to rise. “I think Moms quickly recognized the utility of our product and were eager to share that information with others. We are grateful for the support and buzz we continually receive from Moms out there,” continues Akabane, “this baby shower is a wonderful way for us to all give back and show them our appreciation.”
