Dear families and friends,
This has been an amazing first year for The site has seen enormous growth and our parent subscriber database continues to grow daily. It has been exciting for me as a new parent and long time resident of Santa Cruz to get involved with the community and to uncover the hidden treasures of the county. Our goal for the past year has been to (1) give parents choices by centralizing resources and (2) to give businesses and non-profit organizations an affordable way to advertise and reach families.

It is with sadness and regret that I have to say goodbye to Santa Cruz. We have loved living in Santa Cruz, where my husband was born and raised, but our family is relocating to Nevada where we will be closer to family and friends. This also means that I will be selling a business that I have so enjoyed running. After watching the impact it has had in Santa Cruz, I am looking forward to working with and starting a new site in Nevada after we settle in.


(Icons/Graphics) ladybug-alone.jpgIn the coming months the site will continue to receive all the attention and care it has for the last year so continue to submit your events and keep utilizing the classifieds and the parent chat. With Halloween and the holidays coming, you will want to take advantage of all the great resources!


I am looking for a qualified and enthusiastic buyer who can continue the efforts in the community and build on this proven successful business model while working with the supportive and innovative team.

This is a great business for someone who is committed to our community and believes in helping families by centralizing family resources for Santa Cruz County. It is also a business that offers flexibility and allows you to set your own hours. Click on to learn more about the opportunity and see how many other communities are being impacted by this resource!
