Cruze Farm Halloween Fun

Unless you've been living in a cave, by now you've heard that Cruze Farm opened up a corn maze this fall. I've been reading and hearing wonderful reviews, and I've finally got plans to go... for Halloween!

Diaper Love event on Market Square

I received a tip from a friend that Kimberley Clark is partnering with a local charity group, Diaper Love to help needy moms in East Tennessee while raising money for United Way of Greater Knoxville. Kimberly-Clark is donating 100 cases of diapers, 100 cases of training pants, and $2,500 to Diaper Love. The event will take place on Market Square, Thursday, October 27, 2011, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

As part of the event they will be selling 100 Cases of Diapers to the public at a cost of $10/case with 100% of the proceeds going to United Way of Greater Knoxville. For each case donated, Kimberly-Clark will donate an additional case to Diaper Love. Win win.

Event is listed here, but with little info.

If you or someone you know is in desperate need of disposable diapers, this is a great opportunity.
