We’re super excited that our first charity spotlight is on the Children’s Auction. It’s an insanely cool way to help the children here locally in our area.
This volunteer run auction helps provide other local charities in the area with funds to provide aide and services to the children of the Lakes Region.
In its first year, the Auction made $2100. Now with the help of all of the Lakes Region, those numbers are being blown out of the water! Last year it was OVER $500,000!! Over the past 33 years, over $4 million dollars has been raised for local charities.
The Children’s Auction is held every year in Dec but throughout the year people and businesses all over the Lakes Region come together to help benefit the Children’s Auction. One of the biggest is the Pub Mania event hosted at Patrick’s pub each year. People from all over the Lakes Region can donate items that go up for auction.
How can you help? Get involved in the events, donate items to the auction, bid on items or volunteer your time.
To learn more about the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction, come on down to our Summer Kick Off Ladies Night Out Networking Event at Patrick’s Pub in Gilford. A representative from the Auction will be there to answer any questions and help you learn more about the Auction!

Yup. I know. Mother's Day JUST passed. But I like to surprise friends and family with gifts on days they aren't expecting it. It makes it feel a little more love vs the obligatory gift you have to give.
The other night I was bored, so I thought I'd search around the web and find some fun, whenever gifts to give.
Unique Activity tracker bands
A lot of us have some sort of activity tracker (I use an Apple Watch). But let's face it, the stock bands they have just aren't that pretty.
I've tried going to the store to get something cute for my Apple Watch, but they are all just so 'watchy'. OK I know that isn't a word, but I am sure you get what I mean.
When I got my daughter her Apple Watch, I'd wanted to find a band etc that made it look a little more like jewelry - but alas, no avail.
This past week I stumbled upon Simeon D Jewelry out of California. She's this CUTE little shop on Etsy that makes jewelry type activity tracker bands. Super exciting. Be sure to check out all the really amazing looking pieces.
She was also SUPER awesome and is offering our readers 15% off their purchases with code LRHW15
The succulent trend
I would totally surprise my friends with a cute item from this shop! RootBotanical!
With code LAKES you can save 10% as well.
Also - not going to lie, I say this to my daughter all the time so this box stuck out to me.
Measure your love
I find these mason jar measuring cups from Mason Jar Lifestyle insanely cute. I know I could see myself picking these up for a couple of friends (and PROBABLY myself included).
Visit the website https://masonjarlifestyle.com/ and use code LRH for 15% off!
How cute is this little gift set (also, can you tell I like shopping handmade items)? This would be especially great on days when your friend or sister (or heck you) just need a little pick me up.
They've got TONS of cute stuff in the Peace Organics shop, so be sure to check it out. And use code PEACE15 for 15% off anything in the shop!
Time for tea
I love tea, but have you ever seen anything so pretty?! The tea sets over at TeaBloom are great for a memorable gift as well as a gift you can enjoy together.
TeaBloom is an affiliate link - no extra cost to you.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my recent finds for cool, just because gifts.
I highly encourage you to take your own stroll and find some just because gifts.
