Application: Kids Around Richmond
Kids Around Richmond was launched in April 2012 as a one stop resource for local moms and dads simply looking for activities to keep their kids busy. Although, there are several online newsletter which also list kid friendly events, none of these seemed to focus on events in other counties such as Amelia, Powahatan, or Chesterfield County cities such as Midlothian or Woodlake. During one event I attended, the consistent comment made by moms present was that there was a need for an online newsletter which represented moms and the needs in our local areas, not just Richmond. Moms wanted to know what was happening in Woodlake, Brandermill, Amelia, Farmville, Jetersville. As a new resident who relocated from NY, I was also looking for kid friendly events in my local area especially with the rising gas prices. Kids Around Richmond is currently on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. We are trying to increase our presence and subscribers and wish to publish weekly.
