It has been a while since I've showcased a feature spotlight on business. I'd like to introduce a wonderful online community called momstown.ca We have our very own local chapter for Whitby and Ajax run by an awesome business mompreneur Nicole King. Here is some information about the community and some background information as well.
momstown.ca was founded in Burlington, Ontario by Christi Rasheed and Ann-Marie Burton in 2007. Nicole King became the momstown Whitby-Ajax licensee in July of 2010. Nicole is mom to Cadence (born in 2009) and is expecting her second in early-February 2011. Nicole was briefly a member of another chapter of momstown when her daughter was first born, and loved the concept... so decided to launch a momstown in her own community.
momstown began as a grassroots community initiative to help local moms connect and support each other. Odds are that when you were growing up your mom knew all of your neighbours. Your street was full of kids you knew and your mom invited the neighbourhood over to run through the sprinkler while the other moms had coffee and chatted. If a neighbour had a new baby, you were probably sent over with a hot casserole and the new mother would have been warmly welcomed into the folds of the other families. Although some social conventions have (sadly) changed, what hasn’t is the need to connect with other local mothers. It has always been said it takes a village to raise a child. We say it takes a town. Who resides in the town we fondly call momstown? Well, it’s moms like you.
momstown provides this connection with a calendar filled with over 25 events scheduled per months where moms can connect and get out of the house. momstown events give moms the opportunity to connect with their children on a variety of levels - education, creative play, music and more. However we also understand that even with the best of intentions moms can't always get out but still need to connect. momstown stays true to their mandate to connect and support moms via their newly revamped, dynamic website inclusive of message boards, tips and tricks from mom bloggers, and practical content. Then just for fun we throw in member discounts, a feature page and a monthly contest.
momstown understands that every mom has her own schedule and workload. Working moms, expectant moms, mat leave moms and stay at home moms alike can benefit from the momstown offerings and events. With weekday, evening and weekend events, there is something that can fit into even the most hectic of schedules.
