Trusted Diaper Rash Brand Lends Support to Expecting Military Families and Launches Call for Military Baby Photos
Tarrytown, NY (August 31, 2017) – Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® joined forces with Operation Shower® yesterday, hosting a baby shower for nearly 50 expecting military moms and dads in Foxborough, MA. The diaper rash brand trusted and loved by millions of parents, honored brave military members who protect our country, by protecting their little ones, through a year-long partnership with Operation Shower. This non-profit military organization celebrates military families across the country by hosting baby showers for expecting military parents. In addition to celebrating the service members at the event, Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® also announced a call for Military Baby photos, in return for a free sample of one of its popular diaper rash products – a nursery staple across the U.S.
The shower, which was held at the site of the PGA Tour’s Dell Technologies Golf Championship with support from Birdies for the Brave®, was hosted by parenting lifestyle expert, Rosie Pope, a longtime supporter of the Operation Shower cause. Pope, a notable entrepreneur, TV personality and tastemaker in the maternity and parenting space, engaged the guests through baby shower games, while also answering questions and giving advice to the military moms. The “Over The Moon” themed shower feted deserving military members and their spouses by providing must-haves for their babies and a chance to come together and celebrate with each other. As presenting sponsor of the shower, Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® not only provided the “protection” these families will surely need for their babies’ bottoms, but also an interactive Diaper Changing Game that saw attendees going head to head to see who could change the diaper of the brand’s stuffed mascot the fastest!
