Taylor Swift Helps Save the Music

Over the course of this past year we’ve talked much about the recession and about how we have all been personally affected. Terry and I have been committed to finding you opportunities, whether through Butterfly’s national job search board or via companies like Jos A Bank and Cigna. Moreover, we have provided resources on how to build your on or offline business by pulling out excerpts from Scott Fox’s book “Internet Riches”, Mike Michalowicz’s “The Toilet Paper entrepreneur” or Gary Vaynerchuk’s guide called, “Crush It.” Since Butterfly’s launch on January 15, 2009, Butterfly has been devoted to empowering mothers… after all that’s why we launched the site in the first place.

During this recession we are proud to say that Butterfly has helped mothers in more ways than one. As many of you may know, Butterfly is committed to aiding many non-profits that in turn, help mothers by helping their children. This past fall, we teamed up with the VH1 Save the Music Foundation in an effort to benefit school music programs. Our 1999 Nick Lachey auction gave way to donating a portion of the $10,600 bid for a date with the man himself, Nick Lachey.

According to the Nonprofit Risk Management Center, “In this economic downturn nonprofits face especially troubling times: private contributions decline as individual, corporate, and foundation donors are less inclined to give; governmental funding declines or disappears; and earnings from endowments shrink along with their capital market values. On the other hand, economic downturns put added demands on nonprofits’ already dwindling resources: more clients ask for increased help; fewer volunteers, concerned about their own household incomes, willingly give their time to nonprofit service; and budgets for many routine activities — such as public outreach and maintenance of buildings and vehicles — are cut so that every possible dollar can be channeled more directly into client services.”

Our recent auctions with Rachelle and Ed Begley Jr., Martha Byrne and [our currently live] Taylor Swift, allow us to help make a difference on a larger scale in the lives of mothers and their families. Take a moment to bid on the opportunity to Meet Taylor Swift or at least to spread the word. The VH1 Save the Music Foundation thanks you as does Butterfly and the children’s lives that will be forever changed regardless of the state of the economy.

Meet Taylor Swift! Charity Auction!

One – hundred years ago, West Virginia became the first state in the union to proclaim Mother’s Day an official Holiday. A woman by the name of Anna Jarvis founded Mother’s Day to honor her beloved Mother and then spent the rest of her life fighting the holiday’s commercial and political exploitation. She died alone in an asylum. * We should mention that Anna had THIRTEEN children, hence the “asylum” part. Terry and I spent the early part of our Mother’s Day watching our boys (one out of two children each) play on opposing teams and duke it out on the baseball field. We’d love to hear how you spent your Mother’s Day… not on your blackberry’s we hope!

Congratulations to the SEVEN lucky winners of the “Send Me to Sesame Place contest.” Click here to view the winners! Tickets unclaimed by end of day today will be re-gifted to randomly selected contest entrants.

Now, brace yourselves for the “Mother” of all contests… a contest where only you (or your kids) can determine how badly you want this prize. Are you ready for us to dish the details? Are you sitting down? Not leaning or kneeling! Sitting! Think megastar. Think once in a lifetime opportunity to MEET the multi-award winning, singer-songwriter and new face of CoverGirl, TAYLOR SWIFT. That’s right, we said it! We are auctioning off an experience to meet Taylor Swift during the continuation of her Fearless tour in Washington D.C. on June 2, 2010. All you have to do is bid often and early to WIN: Meet and Greet with Taylor Swift, two tickets to Taylor’s June 2nd’s show at the Verizon Center in D.C., hotel/domestic roundtrip air for two, a personalized autographed acoustic guitar AND two Powersticks* so that you can stay connected on-the-go. Auction benefits the VH1 Save the Music Foundation. Bidding starts May 13 at MyWorkButterfly. Set your “crackberry” reminder alerts now.

Top-off Mother’s Day with Taylor. Now that’s a dollop!

Our Mother’s Day Gift to You- Sesame Place Tickets/Books Galore

This past week marked the celebration of “Earth Day” and “Take Your Child to Work Day.” Two occasions that should have allowed you the opportunity to teach your children lessons of sustainability in work and life. Please take 5-minutes to watch the video of Living with Ed’s, Ed Begley Jr. as he shares easy and affordable tips on how to “go green.” Allot a few more minutes to watch nationally known psychotherapist Dr. Robi Ludwig as she, alongside her daughter, prepares to appear on TV’s InSession in our “Take Your Child to Work Day” video. It’s a feel good way to wrap up the month of April.

In May we will celebrate ourselves, Moms, because we rule and because it’s officially Mother’s Day. If in fact you’d like to be treated like the rock star you are, take a second to enter the Send Me to Sesame Place Contest to win FOUR tickets to Sesame Place! SEVEN moms will be chosen to win… it’s your chance to allow your kids to love you even more (if that’s even possible).

We’ve got an additional gift for you… we’re feeling very generous in light of Mother’s Day. The first TWO moms toget FIVE new members to join MyWorkButterfly will receive the books: TODAY’S MOMS: Essentials for Surviving Baby’s First Year by TODAY show producers, Mary Ann Zoellner and Alicia Ybarbo AND actress Josie Bissett’s book, Tickle Monster. As chance may have it, Alicia, Mary Ann and Josie are all Mom Mentors that will be showcased on Butterfly in May. You will be able to watch our exclusive video interview with TODAY producers and listen in on our phone chat with Melrose Place’s Josie Bissett. Good times.

We’ve got two last items on the agenda:

  1. Terry and I will be interviewing Peter Walsh, nationally renowned expert in organizational design and living, best-selling author and TV personality. Peter teaches people how to de-clutter their minds, homes and offices to improve their lives and personal spaces. Peter is a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show where he provides expert advice for combating clutter. If you could ask him any question to help simplify your life what might it be? Do tell.
  2. Do you love soap operas or wish you could mingle with your favorite soap stars? Wish no more! On April 28thyou can bid on attending a gala with Martha Byrne, Terri Columbino, Jon Hensley, Kelley Hensley, Michael Park and others to benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. Includes hair/makeup, hotel/air and more!

Until May.
