Love The Heart of This Company!

On the last day of the 2015 ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, local nonprofit KIDS (Kids In Distressed Situations) made its annual rounds to confirm any donations from show exhibitors. That’s when staff at Baby K’tan decided they would donate what could serve as an entire living room of furniture, including two futons, four side tables and six shelving units. Volunteers for K.I.D.S. collected the items and shipped them off to be used locally.K'Tan Gives

“Each year, we’ve seen some amazing donations by fellow exhibitors at the end of the show,” says Reina Christian, marketing manager at Baby K’tan. “We were absolutely honored and humbled to be able to participate as well. Philanthropy is an important part of our corporate culture, and this year we had the chance to serve local Las Vegas families with the much-needed furniture donation.”

Brainstorming for a re-launched booth at ABC 2016 is already underway at Baby K’tan.

I’ve learned….  That the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

Taking Time To Vacay

As I am preparing for the upcoming ABC Kid’s Show, I am also anticipating a short vacation with my husband and our youngest son. The married son has to stay home this time.

I am looking forward to the refreshing as I step away from all things electronic. This will allow me to recharge my batteries for the upcoming Expo in Las Vegas. I’ll return to my work on Tuesday, October 13, and will ‘hit the ground running’.

If you need anything between October 5 and 12, you may either contact the manufacturer directly, send me an email knowing that I’ll reply after the 12th, or email my assistant Stephanie (she is my daughter-in-law) at stephanie@tracylurban.com
