This month we were able to donate nearly 30 boxes to families! That’s almost double what we were able to give away last month, and brings our grand total of donated boxes to over 150!! Two organizations who received a donation of boxes were Family Place Relief, and The Sherwood Family Resource Center. Thank you to everyone who has supported us by making box purchases. We are so grateful for your support. And to everyone else who is cheering us on in other ways, we are thankful for you too. Every “small” act means a lot.
We took part in a fundraising social media event called Earth Day Oregon in April. It aligned well with our goal to use products in our boxes that are safe for baby and mama to use on their skin, but also safe for the environment. That is why we purchase organic, natural, nontoxic, reusable products whenever we can. We also try and source them locally. We’re so lucky to have Earth Mama Organics so close!
We are very thankful to the five local businesses who held fundraisers for us, and donated to In Kind during the event. Our Earth Day Oregon business partners were:
*Essential Fit Co
We are very lucky to have such kind and generous local businesses willing to offer support in such a tricky time for the world.
Speaking of generosity, we had 2 new items added to our gift boxes- gemstone earrings made by a mama from Canada (find her on Facebook or Etsy @HVNLYBOUTIQUE, and white organic cotton onesies from Lamaze Organics. These items bring the value of the box well over its purchase price. Get yours now while supplies last!
Because of COVID-19 we have been doing regular gift box giveaways on our Instagram and Facebook pages. Being at home with the kids all day, every day is a lot, and we try our best to be a source of kindness and support. Please go to our page and follow along! You can find us @inkindboxes.
