Shine A Light

American Express in partnership with NBC Universal have invited us all to {SHINE A LIGHT} on a small business that we find inspiring. After thousands of businesses were nominated they've narrowed it down to the final 3 and there are only 2 days left to vote!
The top 150 nominated stories were evaluated by three independent judges including the talented designer and fashion house owner Diane Von Furstenberg, JJ Ramberg, the host of msnbc's new small business show "Your Business" and beloved television icon and entertainment pioneer and funny woman, Ellen DeGeneres.
Currently in second place is Happy Baby! {HAPPYBABY} pioneered a new movement in baby food with a line of sustainable organic home-style meals as an alternative to the processed jarred foods that had not been improved since the 1930’s. They were the first organic baby food to incorporate DHA, the essential fatty acid needed for brain development and used a sustainable vegetarian source. HAPPYBELLIES cereal was the first baby food to use probiotics which defend against the development of food allergies, asthma, and eczema while supporting digestive wellness. Their HAPPYPUFFS were the first organic puffed snack for baby as a low sugar alternative to the artificial products on the market. HAPPYMELTS are the first product to combine pre and probiotics in a truly healthy yogurt snack for tots. Their HAPPYBITES line encourages kids to eat their veggies by sneaking them into familiar flavors. Most recently, the company is the first to use the supergrain, Salba, the planet’s most nutritious grain.

Take some time today or tomorrow and visit the site {HERE} and make your vote count! The winning company will receive, in addition to the $10,000 to be awarded to each finalist nomination, the Nominated Business of the winning Nomination will receive an additional $50,000 in the form of a check and $50,000 worth of marketing support.
As Moms we all want the best for our children! What better way to make our children's needs met! Let's all band together and vote for our children! If I'd known about HappyBaby when Jake & Laney were in the baby food stage....that's all I would have bought!
