About Mamas Got Heart
Mamas Got Heart was inspired by Yvonne’s Hopscotch Mom Blog (hopscotchmom.com), where she shares “ Tidbits of All Things Family, Children and Education related.”
After becoming mom and raising her own family, Yvonne was inspired to be more green, more mindful of all the purchases she makes. The birthday parties were always fun to plan, but she realized there were so many disposables from the one time use plastic goody bags to the often one time use decorations and toys.
She strived to make better choices as she picked out toys and goody bags that she thinks would be purposeful, educational and hopefully stick around for more than a few weeks. It was difficult to find non-plastic toys that were affordable.
With all that said, Yvonne created this store to fill with eco friendlier choices that will hopefully last forever; or for when they do get tossed, it won’t add to the pile of plastic and goods that already overflow the landfill; or at least high quality enough to donate or pass on to another family member or friend for years to come.
The Fundraise Part of her store was inspired by all the times she helped volunteer to do fundraisers at her daughters' school and found so many one time disposables poor quality toys! She hopes to connect schools to a more mindful way to fundraise-- learning about real people and the companies they created, where everyone shares a story of how they contribute their passions and talents and making the world a better place.
