Love All Around

We love our readers – each and every one of you!!!

We also love Miss Lauren Mack for interviewing us over coffee last week and came up with the following, which she posted in a local blog she contributes for…

This, is the outcome…

Are YOU in a Pickel?

When picking nonprofit organizations, the important thing is to find the one that connects with you and your beliefs for a better world in the best way possible.

We want to be able to see our donations are going to the people who need them the most. Some say the easiest way to do this is to just get involved yourself. But when it comes to where our money is going, everyone wants to see it help the right people for the right reasons. How often do we stop gawking at the television reports and write a check to really make a difference?

With the world in such need of nurturing, how do we determine who needs the help the most? An even better question is: When did you need the most help? You got it. You needed it the most when you weren’t always able to ask for it – when you were a baby. One of the key elements to building a better world is giving support right from the beginning of life.
Lucky for us, there is a way to build a stronger world and family unit right in our community. Baby Pickel is dedicated to helping single mothers and families in Palm Coast, surrounding areas, and the world.

They have found single motherhood makes up 80% of single family households. Additionally, their research indicates 12,905,000 single families exist in the United States alone and 10,404,000 are headed by women. If we want to become a strong society, we have to help make the people raising the future generations stronger.

Pickel Clothing started off supporting and sponsoring local bands. You could see your favorite local musician sporting Pickel t-shirts on stage, in school, and around town. I still have a giant Pickel sticker on the drawers to my desk in my room from a show. But the folks at Pickel wanted something more. They wanted to give back.
Baby Pickel was born. It is run on the belief God has given them the purpose to provide for families in need and to always give more than you receive. I was able to catch up with the whole team over coffee to ask them a few questions about their nonprofit and what they provide.
Check out the interview below:
Q: How did the baby department of Pickel get started?

BP: We started off designing baby clothing lines for high end hotels. Things like baby bathrobes, pajamas, and we just wanted to give back to the community and be able to provide what we were designing to the people who really needed the help.

Q: One of the things featured on the website is the Pickel Jar. What is inside?

BP: Baby Pickel is working hard every day to not only supply the most adorable and affordable baby shower gifts, but also packing each baby jar with love, prayer, and accessories. Striving to always give more than we are asking and giving back to each community by sparking the spirit of servanthood in all of us. Right now there is a bib, washcloth, onesie, and pacifier in every jar. Donating the baby jar is only 10 dollars.

Q: Tell me about your partnership with the Alpha Pregnancy Center of Palm Coast.

BP: The partnership was our first big step to networking with other nonprofits of similar interests. Part of our donations go to Alpha to help with their services and they help us not only get our products to the people in need but help with donating from person to person. We are also going to be working with Our Children First of Daytona to expand our reach.

Q: What are your longterm goals?

BP: We are working on making the baby jar customizable on the website. We want people to be able to pick from a variety of products to be packed inside. The jar will become built of of what is requested instead of a standard, eventually turning the website into a type of donation store.

Q: How can others get involved?

BP: We are always looking for help. Donations are not restricted to just the baby jar or giving money. We will deliver anything from clothes to baby cribs to the people who need it. Baby Pickel is made up of people of similar interests, and we will accept any help that is given.

Q: Any advice for other local nonprofits?

BP: Don’t allow friends and family to affect what you want to achieve. Always give more than you ask for and you will be guaranteed success.

If you wanted to get involved, Baby Pickel will be hitting the streets advertising their Mommy Day Giveaway. The contest runs through September 1st to the 15th.

All you have to do is friend request Pickel Palm Coast on Facebook and comment “I Love Baby Pickel!” and you will be entered to win a $50 Luxury Spa Service from Styles Salon in Palm Coast. It includes a facial, pedicure, manicure, and haircut. Winner is selected at random and announced the morning of the 16th.

    Interesting post hitting a few nails squarely on the head – not sure about the importance of motive, but excellently well done.
