This month we were very fortunate to have been the recipient of fundraising efforts by Kemi Oladimeji and Kendra Scott. We are always so grateful when people and businesses want to support our nonprofit work.
Did you know August 17th is National Nonprofits Day! Thank you to everyone who highlighted our work, and helped us with donations that day!!!
Our Mamas Making an Impact series on Instagram was graced by some amazing moms making a difference in the world. Our guests include: Kemi Oladimeji, Anne Trobaugh, and Nikki Gause. Go and check them out on Instagram. They are saved to In Kind Boxes’ IGTV.
Gift box donations this month went out to Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center Women’s Clinic, Mamas for Mamas, BeLoved Black Birth Centering, Bottoms Up Diaper Bank, Hiya Baby, and Tree of Life Miami. All of these organizations are doing amazing work to uplift families in need in their area, and show moms the love and support they deserve.
On top of those donated boxes, we sent our our monthly gift boxes that are sponsored. These include boxes to Chicago Birthworks Collective from Chicago, Illinois and to Babies of Homelessness in Bellevue, Washington. Boxes have been sponsored privately, by folks wanting to support postpartum moms in need in their area.
In Kind sends monthly gift boxes to 2 doulas we sponsored this year. Doulas do amazing work supporting families. Recipients of our sponsorship program have programs themselves that offer their services to families in need in their area. Kaytee Crawford helps families in Minnesota, and PNW Doulas are based in Salem, Oregon. Sponsorship application forms will open back up at the start of October, so keep your eyes open for that!
Together we are showing moms that they are not alone, and that they matter.
Thank you for your continued support!
