We are so excited to announce our first Family Safety Event!
What is this event about and what is the purpose of this event?
This event screamed necessity after a dear friend of mine had a scary incident with her then 3 month old daughter. She wrote a guest post about her struggles and almost losing her daughter. It was simple- her daughter could have died had she not known how to properly give her infant CPR. She was CPR certified, but it could have been a different story if she didn’t take the initiative to sign up for that class. It led me to thinking about how many other mamas might not know how vital it is to get CPR certified, or at least know the very basics of life saving skills.
Then other stories about social media incidents, kidnappings and more started popping up everywhere and I knew that San Diego Moms Blog HAD to have a safety focused event.
The goal of this Family Safety Event is simple- we want to saturate you and your family with safety information covering all bases so that it’s a one stop shop for information while having some fun!
Where is this event going to be held?
Our friends and host sponsors, The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch, are graciously allowing us to takeover their outdoor shopping space to hold this event, so that after the event, you can potentially do some shopping, and grab dinner at one of their yummy restaurants!
When is this event?
This event will be on Sunday, March 25th from 11am-4pm. Throughout the day, we will have various activities scheduled to keep you entertained and educated!
