Testimonial for Kidoinfo as a powerful media tool
Here’s proof that parents are reading Kidoinfo to find local events to attend with their kids.

    Hooray! Anisa, that’s great!!
    And what’s the event that got overwhelmed? I’m so curious. I am imagining a rural library?

  6. Katy Killilea Katy says:

    Oh–small business. Annual event. Some kind of something with chocolate and children?

    I am keeping the business under wraps to protect their identity. Kidoinfo is meant to help parents and support businesses so I respect when a business wishes to not promote some events…
