rainy days giveaways {day 4}: Modern Mama

CONTEST CLOSED!  Congratulations to Lee-Anne Gin - our winner of the Modern Mama Perks Card!!

If you haven't heard of Modern Mama by now, you are about to be hooked.  Hooked on parties, get togethers and events that you can... *gasp*.....bring your little ones to.

Founded in 2008 by mama of three Connie Peters, Modern Mama has been bringing stylish and informative events to the Edmonton and Calgary areas and, most recently, Vancouver.  Events include:
  • Mama Needs a Babysitter - a chance to meet local sitters face-to-face in a social environment.
  • Infant and Child CPR Session
  • Stylish events such as Mama at the Hair Salon and Essentials of Skin Care at Sephora
  • Mini-Mixers - introduces you to other moms interested in establishing a playgroup in your area
  • And much more!

If that wasn't enough, Modern Mama also has a yearly Membership Perks Card which offers discounts at local Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary stores and Modern Mama events.  The cost is $35 and also includes national perks for mamas residing outside of the three Modern Mama cities.

Modern Mama also offers a licensing option of their brand in your community.  Becoming a Modern Mama Community Director means working part-time at your own pace while being at home with your kids.  You can even bring your kids to Modern Mama events!  A few responsibilities of Modern Mama's Community Directors include:
  • Creating events based on a semester schedule based on Modern Mama's model
  • Building a community in person and online using social media and blogging
  • Growing a membership base and maintaining regular newsletters
  • And more!
