About Us and a Welcome to our Blog!

When you become a parent, you have to adjust to all the new things about having a new tiny person in your life – lack of sleep, feeding schedules, learning to swaddle. But it’s not just the new things that are overwhelming. Laundry, walking the dog, meal planning, picking up your oldest child from school – life didn’t stop when the baby was born, in fact it feels like it’s only getting started.

That’s why Organize My Village is an online scheduling tool built with parents in mind. Founder Maria felt exactly this way when she had her first child. She knew that she needed help, but she didn’t know how to ask (or even that she could!) Organize My Village is a way for parents to ask their family and friends for support without guilt!

The online scheduler allows parents to simply ask for what they need and get support from their family and friends – no guilt, no fuss, no feelings of obligation, just the help parents need when they need it.

This all sounds great, right? I think we just heard a collective sigh of relief from all the mamas-to-be out there!

But you may be wondering - how does it work?

We have recently created a series of Youtube videos that breaks down:

  • how Organize My Village works;

  • how to use Organize My Village as a new parent;

  • how to set up a calendar and customize what kind of help you need (we even provide suggestions to help you get started!);

  • how to create daily tasks, weekly tasks, or occasional tasks;

  • how to create a shopping “wish list”, so you can really benefit from all the offers of “Let me know what I can do to help!”

  • where to find your “invite code” and how to send this code to friends and family who want to help;

  • how to sync your Organize My Village calendar with your personal calendar (Google, iCloud), etc., so you’re always in the know;

  • how to use Organize My Village as a friend, family member, neighbour or other helpful member of the new family’s support system.
