The Wiggles

(Detroit, MI) – The Wiggles are proud to announce their biggest U.S. tour in nearly a decade. The Wiggle’s Party Time Tour! will support their new Party Time! album, which releases on June 28th. The tour will arrive in Detroit on Monday, August 26th for a 6:30 PM show at the Fox Theatre.

The Party Time Tour! will be the first chance for most of America to see in-person the first-ever female Wiggle, Emma (the Yellow Wiggle), who has become an international sensation. Emma, Lachy, Simon, and Anthony will hit the stage with their friends Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and a brand-new Wiggly friend, Shirley Shawn the Unicorn!

As featured on the upcoming Party Time! album, parents and children alike can dance and sing along to classics like “Hokey Pokey,” “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,” “Skip To My Lou,” and “Simon Says.” Other show highlights include:

  • Joining Emma as she performs Irish, ballet and other bow-tiful dancing.
  • Listening to Anthony play his guitar, banjo and bagpipes.
  • Doing the actions with Simon as he sings “Simon Says”, and if Lachy falls asleep, calling out “Wake up Lachy!” because we need him for the show!

Tickets for The Wiggle’s Party Time Tour! are on sale now.  All tickets are $45 and are available via,, the Fox Theatre Box Office, select retail locations, and by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Children under 12 months are free. Check the venue website for the most up to date information, as well as exciting show announcements.

Habitat for Humanity #Detroit is participating in the fourth annual Quicken Loans Community Challenge via @habitatdetroit #motownmoxiemom

Hello Friends of Habitat Detroit
Habitat for Humanity Detroit is participating in the fourth annual Quicken Loans Community Challenge, a friendly fundraising competition where select charities compete to raise the most money. Participating Detroit charities are competing for $100,000 in grand prizes to help further their missions.

The charity that raises the most online during the Challenge wins a $25,000 donation for their cause.
Second place gets $15,000
Third gets $10,000
Fourth gets $7,500
Fifth gets $5,000

Our friends at Bedrock have created a team that is fundraising on our behalf and they are doing an amazing job!  We are only about $3500 from being in 5th place.  And, the best part of the Challenge is that even if we don’t win the grand prize money, we still get to keep the money raised during the campaign!!
The Habitat Detroit staff wants to be an example…as of today, we have all made a contribution to the mission of providing safe and affordable shelter for everyone.  Will you?
If you can’t afford to give, please share this post with your network. Campaign ends August 30th…thank you for your continued support!!

How to Build a Business and Raise a Family as a Young Woman #motownmom #planprayparent

How do female entrepreneurs make it? How do they succeed? And more importantly, how do they successfully build a family and a business at the same time?

This piece is a special one – one that’s more personal than business. I hope it will provide some insight into the dedication that goes into growing a business and balancing personal growth at the same.

It comes down to four major components: time management, passion, a vision, and some AWESOME team members.

But to understand how I got to where I am now, I need to take you back to the beginning.

Volunteer Highlight
Bob Layne
Bob Layne is no stranger to volunteers or staff of Habitat Detroit. After an illustrious career at Ford and a lengthy time on staff of Habitat Detroit, Bob stepped up to volunteer as the construction project manager for multiple projects this year at Habitat Detroit, including our Build CommUNITY event on June 8. Bob reached out to all of his friends within the Habituals volunteer group (an amazing group of core volunteers at Habitat Detroit) to step up and make all of these projects happen. Thank you so much to Bob and his leadership. We truly could not have accomplished all that we did without his guidance, patience and incredibly hard work.
Impact begins with you…
Mary Parker has lived in the Central Detroit neighborhood of Piety HIll her entire life. As a matter of fact, her mother is her next door neighbor. Mary has a heart as big as the world and has made it her life’s calling to be a foster mother to dozens of children throughout the years, many of whom have special needs. Mary has even adopted some of these children as well. Through the efforts of Habitat Detroit volunteers, Mary’s home is now safer with a rebuilt porch and stairs, and better equipped for her large and always growing family.

Because of generous support from sponsors like Lear Corporation, MASCO, and Habitat Grosse Pointe Partners these projects were completed and impact was created for hundreds of families living in this neighborhood.

You can help create even more impact. Donate a gift today to support the ongoing work of Habitat Detroit and help even more families, just like Mary’s.

We’ve got a chance to win up to an additional $25,000 for our cause as part of the Quicken Loans Community Challenge Detroit and we need your help to make it happen!

The charity who raises the most money during the month of August will win an extra $25,000. This challenge ends Saturday, August 31. Act now and support strengthening our neighborhoods!

Please CLICK HERE to donate what you can. It would be even more incredible if you were also able to start a fundraising team and share our cause with your network.

We really appreciate all of your help. Every gift goes a long way!
