CBad Moms Do Good
A few weeks ago, Carlsbad resident Sherry Barnes had an idea. She wanted to get a group of fellow moms together to have dinner and go see the new Bad Moms movie, and wondered how she could do something helpful in the process. She came up with the tagline “C’Bad Moms Do Good Deeds,” and organized a dinner and movie date to raise money for local organization Solutions for Change, a nonprofit which seeks to solve family homelessness. Her idea spread quickly, and 70 women came to the event. They met at Ignite Bistro before the movie, a local restaurant that also volunteered to donate 10 percent from the event’s proceeds. Collectively they raised $2,600 in total for Solutions for Change. “I thought maybe I could get 20 or 30 women interested in going,” she shared. “It was amazing to see this idea spread to a sold-out showing.” It just goes to show how local, everyday actions can lead to good deeds.
