o/t #MotownMoms: Did you know Indiana Installed ‘Safe Haven Baby Boxes’ for Abandoned Newborns

by Daniella Silva  ( this article was originally published on nbcnews last year)
Monica Kelsey and the town of Woodburn, Ind., dedicated the first Safe Haven Baby Box of its kind on in 2016  of April 26.

Indiana has installed two “baby boxes” where mothers can anonymously drop off unwanted newborns as an extension of the state’s safe haven law.

Two Safe Haven Baby Boxes were opened to the public recently at Indiana fire stations as part of an initiative to give mothers in crisis a secure place to surrender their babies, said Monica Kelsey, a volunteer firefighter and founder of the nonprofit that created the boxes.

“I was abandoned as an infant back in 1973, so I’ve always been very close to the safe haven law,” she told NBC News on Thursday.

The first box was installed last week on the exterior wall of the fire department in Woodburn, near Fort Wayne, where Kelsey volunteers. When a person opens the baby box, a call is immediately placed to 911, and fire and medical personnel are dispatched to the scene.

The box is padded and climate controlled to keep the baby warm while still allowing air circulation, Kelsey said, and automatically locks once a person leaves the child and shuts the door.

  1. What do you think and should these come to Detroit? Would this cut down on newborns being killed or dying because they were left in the elements?

Tech Startup Hosts Free Run for Office Bootcamp for Potential Candidates in Detroit

Crowdpac’s experts will teach the secrets to crowdfunding a campaign ahead of filing deadline

DETROIT, MI — Today, the nonpartisan political crowdfunding startup Crowdpac announced a free evening bootcamp on March 29th in Detroit designed to teach citizens how to run for office and win in the digital age. The program will feature a panel of experts who will walk citizens through the process of exploring a campaign using the latest technology that is helping thousands of candidates run for office across the country.

Michigan’s April 24th filing deadline is rapidly approaching, but there’s still plenty of time for candidates to explore a run for office. Crowdpac’s platform was recently profiled by NPRFast Company and Roll Call for the way it applies innovative crowdfunding technology to help first-time candidates fund their campaigns.

“The single-biggest challenge any candidate faces when they run for office is raising money,” said Mason Harrison, Crowdpac’s Head of Communications. “In this seminar, we’ll teach citizens the basics of exploring a run for office and raising the money they need to actually win.”

Crowdfund Your Run for Office will be held at WeWork Merchant’s Row, located at 1449 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Networking, drinks, and refreshments will begin at 5:30 PM followed by an interactive presentation and discussion from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. While the event is free, space is limited and RSVPs are required to attend.

#Lawnguru is like Uber for your Lawn… Use my code “sylviarox5” for $5 discount #MotownMom (ad) www.lawnguru.co For more details, view here

Being a single mom in the city, it’s really hard to have a dependable person to cut your lawn, when you want it cut.

Now that my son is not around as much, it’s even more difficult and I can’t trust everyone to come out and do a good job.

So when I found the LawnGuru services through Amazon home and business services I was in like Flynn… (I actually don’t know what that means), but I was in love.

I downloaded the Lawnguru app from my Google Play services (because Androids rule) and then I added my property and a credit card. It was really simple. Since my lawn grows when it wants to, I wasn’t locked into a contract. I could step up a one time use when I wanted and then I requested service.

It really feels like Uber for lawn care because depending on the weather and my bank account, I can’t always cut the lawn.

Having this service assures me I can get the lawn cut when I need it cut and keeping my property looking good.

P.S. They also do snow removal also

I highly recommend this service and please use my code “sylviarox5” for $5’s off your next service.

For first time users, you can get $15 off your first request “OwkUnuxZIE”
