You may already know that Babies 'R' Us is the place to find everything for keeping your baby happy. From their Baby Registry to classes & events for new parents, to helpful advice for parents of toddlers; you’ll find all that you need, including great ways to save! But did you know that Babies 'R' Us also has a strong commitment to your baby's safety, as well as a desire to support expectant mothers in military families?
For the second consecutive year, Babies"R"Us is partnering with Operation Shower to co-host baby showers for military wives to help ease the stress of their husbands' deployment. In addition to being separated from their spouses, these soon-to-be-mothers are often far away from close friends and family. Operation Shower works to ensure these women receive some of the basic essentials they'll need for their newborns.
Babies 'R' Us allows women creating a registry to partner with Operation Shower, and they continually host a registry for Operation Shower! Anyone (including you!) can purchase the needed items on the registry. The items will be used to 'shower' military moms at bases across the country for all branches of the Armed Forces - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and National Guard.
Through a donation of Babies"R"Us gift cards, moms-to-be will be able to shop for items they need for their new bundles of joy. Additionally, the Toys"R"Us Children's Fund has donated $100,000 to Operation Shower so they may purchase gifts for these moms, as well as to help host festive occasions to celebrate their new arrivals.
Since joining forces in 2012, Babies"R"Us and Operation Shower together have showered nearly 200 military families.
