SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Moonbeams, the Sleep Shop for Little Ones, and the Steve Nash Foundation have teamed together to offer the Sustainable Kids Series, a free series on child development, beginning with Raising Socially Conscious Kids, Saturday, September 27, 2008 at 11:30 a.m. at Moonbeams.
"We're looking to enhance the access of information available to new and experienced parents, grandparents and caregivers," said Jenny Miller, Executive Director of the Steve Nash Foundation. "Moonbeams' focus on health and wellness makes us proud to join them in this knowledge-sharing endeavor."
Raising Socially Conscious Kids will feature World's Children's Prize-winner and Nobel Peace Prize-nominee Marc Kielburger. Kielburger is the Chief Executive Director of Free the Children, the world's largest network of children helping children. Under his direction, Free the Children has formed successful partnerships with the UN and Oprah's Angel Network. A world renown social entrepreneur, leadership specialist, visionary and best-selling New York Times author, Marc is also the founder of Me to We, a social enterprise for people who want to help change the world through their daily choices.
"We're delighted to have Marc Kielburger launch our Sustainable Kids Series," said Karen Cahn-Adleson, Moonbeams' owner. "Marc reminds us all of the strength inherent in one person's passionate determination. He'll provide practical tips on how parents can enthuse our children to become remarkable humanitarians, aware of social issues and how to help others. It will also be the first day to purchase an original Steve Nash designed baby and children's t-shirt, with all proceeds supporting the Foundation's work in Arizona. And Oregano's Pizza Bistro has gotten involved and will be here serving snacks."
Future sessions are planned on topics ranging from encouraging creative play in the home and classroom to healthy home cleaning.
Moonbeams recently chose the Foundation as its charity of choice; the relationship will support efforts in early childhood education in Arizona.
