Leading Care Website to Inform and Educate Military Families about Care Options that Meet Their Unique Needs

Waltham, MA (April 27, 2011) -Care.com is a sponsor of the MilBlog conference, which runs April 29-30 in Arlington, VA and boasts an impressive roster of speakers. The annual conference is for the military blogging community, including active duty service members, veterans, military spouses, military parents and military supporters.

At the conference, Care.com, the largest website for families to connect with trusted caregivers, will host a booth that provides information for military families as well as information on how a military spouse can become a home care provider. All visitors to the booth will have the opportunity to have his or her photo taken as a superhero. The photos will be posted on the Care.com Facebook page and anyone who becomes a "fan" and tags themselves will be entered into a drawing to win a Flip Camera.

"We're honored to be a sponsor of MilBlog, an important event that connects and educates military families," said Sheila Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com.
