NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MyRegistry.com, the leading universal gift registry website, announces its first-ever baby registry giveback for expectant mothers who are managing unforeseen financial difficulties impacting their ability to purchase baby necessities. As part of a nationwide initiative to spread goodwill, expectant mothers, their friends and family are encouraged to share their stories of hardship via http://www.myregistry.com/baby-registry-giveback, between September 15 and October 15, 2011.
Four nominees will be selected as finalists and work with MyRegistry.com's Personal Registry Concierge Service to create a baby registry filled with items needed to welcome their newborns. The initiative is intended to rally community and national support for each expectant mother and allow people across the nation to purchase baby items from the four registries. The registry with the greatest number of purchases and/or donations will receive an additional $5,000 worth of goods, provided by MyRegistry.com.
"MyRegistry.com's Baby Registry Giveback represents a wonderful opportunity to support someone who may be managing a difficult time and simultaneously get people engaged in their communities," stated MyRegistry.com President Nancy Lee.
