Band Back Together, a community created by Aunt Becky of Mommy Wants Vodka fame, if you haven’t already heard, is a safe haven for anyone needing support and comfort when faced with seemingly overwhelming struggles. Whether it’s a personal conflict, or something you’re facing as a caregiver, BB2G is a place where you can share your stories, where you can feel not so alone, and get some amazing, non-judgemental feedback and help.
You’ll meet others there going through the same things you are, who have come through the fire stronger and wiser.
The website also offers a plethora of resources on a staggering array of subjects, and most recently has added a whole library of go-to links for teens ranging from cyberbullying to eating disorders, to mental health issues, to losing a loved one.
The Band is now going through the process of establishing non-profit status. To that end, an auction is being organized to help off-set the registration costs.
You can help by checking out the Band’s bulletin board on Sept. 19 to see all the wonderfulous items up for auction, then bid with abandon. If you’d rather, you can also make direct donations to the Band’s PayPal account (keep checking the BB2G bulletin board for that link). OR… you can do like I did, and donate something for the auction.
Remember this post, where I rattled on about my jewelry making? I’m donating this necklace to the Band…
And as Aunt Becky says, “All proceeds from this auction will go toward costs of filing for non-profit status, running this site, and outreach efforts.”
If the Band has helped you or someone you love, or if you just want to help a sistah out, pay it forward and show a little love to Aunt Becky. It’ll do great things for your karma.
(Remember, all bids must be made at the Band’s website, NOT here. I can’t accept them, nor can I forward them…)

I think the BB2G site is such a wonderful thing.
Thanks for the heads up, Tara. The necklace is beautiful.
Band is an amazing place. I don’t know if it can be proven that that website saves life, but it defintely warms hearts and provides shelter for the broken. Becky, Jana, Dana and Jenna deserve all the attention they can get for making people feel safe and unalone.
I have been meaning to check it out because I have seen numerous RT’s by you and others- I will definitely do this tonight when I get home. That necklace is GORGEOUS. You have such talent, my friend 🙂
So grateful for your post about BB2G here, and your necklace is lovely! You’ve inspired me to write a post like this for the Band as well.. thanks!
