Single Minded Women and Blogger Matt Logelin Launch Charity Gift Registry

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Phoenix, Ariz. (November 3, 2008) –Abandoned and neglected children have a new advocate in their corner. Online women’s lifestyle magazine SingleMindedWomen.com has teamed up with noted widowed parenting blogger Matt Logelin and his family to create a charity gift registry via Amazon.com that will dispense donated items to American children in need.
Using the online gift registry, charitable givers can purchase essential items like clothing, books, art supplies, and toys, which will be forwarded on to the My Stuff Bags Foundation. Based in California, this non-profit organization provides abused, abandoned, and neglected children—ranging in age from newborn to 18 years old—throughout the United States with personal belongings to help fulfill their needs and lend a sense of comfort as they are shepherded through the foster care system. The My Stuff Bags Foundation estimates that more than 300,000 children each year are removed from dangerous home environments, and it is their mission to provide each of these children with a bag filled with donated goods.
For blogger Matt Logelin, whose writing can be found at MattLogelin.com and SingleMindedWomen.com, My Stuff Bags Foundation’s cause is an important one. Matt’s wife, Liz, passed away from a pulmonary embolism within 27 hours of giving birth to their daughter Madeline. As a newly widowed single father, Matt takes comfort in being able to offer a helping hand to children who, for whatever reason, has been separated from the parents.
Matt’s relationship with SingleMindedWomen.com, for which he contributes as a guest blogger, helped lay the groundwork for the development of a joint charity gift registry. The site has a reputation for supporting charitable organizations—including Arizona’s Homeward Bound, which aids children affected by domestic violence and homelessness—and was thrilled to partner with Matt for this important cause.
