Would you get your belly painted? Warren Buffet did it... just saying. ;) Keep scrolling to the bottom for proof if you don't believe me. :) Why? Because it's for an excellent cause! 100% of the Belly Art Project's author proceeds benefit Every Mother Counts, an agency that works together to help ensure childbirth and pregancy are safe for women everywhere.
It's a project that has really taken off, and some celebrities (Alyssa Milano's photo shoot turned out awesome!) are getting in on it as well!

There are a lot of creative ways to paint a belly, so I have found out from reading the book... What a fun keepsake to have around for your kids to see later, and when they're grown. :) It's definitely an easy way to let them see how happy you were when they were coming around. ;)
The person who invented Spanx, Sara Blakely, is the one who came up with the Belly Art Project idea. Every time I see her in an article, it looks like she's having a blast. I think she just likes what she does, and a big hurrah for it too. :)
Coming up with ideas for the photo shoots for the book must have been a blast. So many things I wouldn't have thought of were in it. Some made me laugh, some made me say, 'aww,' and some were just downright clever.
And as I noted at the beginning of the post, even Warren Buffet got in on this one. He's not a mother, but he is a huge influence wherever he goes, and I've heard a genuinely nice guy, so I'm sure he was more than welcome as an exception to the mama rule. :)
Of course, a watermelon came into play...that's the first thing I thought of when I saw they were painting bellies. It's easy to stage, easy to paint, and it's kind of cute. :) You can learn more by visiting the Belly Art Project website.
So the question begs to be answered...
