Dear Member,

As the summer winds down and we head into fall, we hope that you found some much needed relaxation and are ready for some exciting things ahead! 
Our Milk Money had a very successful first summer and we are pleased to announce that the directory has more than tripled since it's inception last spring! You will find many new products and services sold exclusively by parents, so please take a moment to visit the ONLY Self-Employed Parent Directory on the web!
We owe many thanks to YOU, our supporters! You are a big reason we have grown as much as we have in 5 months and why we know this success will continue because of your support. We appreciate your help in spreading our mission and letting others know what we are accomplishing for families everywhere. Our goal continues to list each and every self employed parent across the United States and Canada. The more extensive our directory is, the more useful and convenient our list of products and services will be for you.
If you know anyone who fits the criteria of "self-employed parent," please continue to send them our way for a chance to take part in a growing movement! At the bottom of this newsletter you will find a coupon for a free month in our directory.
If we continue to support one another, our home based businesses will soon thrive, and so will our children.
