Why did we start In Kind?
1.)We want to give back and help moms in need.
2.)We want to support moms in general by helping them feel loved and cared for. Our gift box is curated for both mama and baby- not just baby, as we so commonly see.
3.)To offer a shower gift that is both useful, and purposeful. Searching for a great shower gift can be tough. Baby gift registries can be very limiting, the parents might not have a registry at all, or as a conscious consumer, it can hard to find baby shower gifts with purpose. Our gift box fills that gap because it is filled with so many proven, natural essentials, plus it is very meaningful to know that another mom is gifted a box with your gift box purchase.
As moms ourselves we know how hard motherhood can be. We understand the financial stresses of bringing home a new baby, and all of the worry that comes with trying be the best mom you can be. We want moms to know that they are not alone. In Kind cares, and we are here to help.
How can I help In Kind Boxes?
*Donate funds to In Kind Boxes. Your entire donation goes directly to furthering our mission to help families. We use your donations to purchase the products that fill our gift boxes. Our organization is volunteer run- we give our time because we care.
*Purchase items from our shop. Looking for a baby shower gift? Our gift box is perfect for that. Another option is our organic cotton swaddle blanket that comes in three patterns.
*Follow and tag @inkindboxes on social media (Instagram and Facebook). We are always trying to spread awareness for what we are doing and would love your support. It’s also the best way to see what we’re up to. We’d love for you to follow along!
*You can add In Kind Boxes as your Amazon Smile recipient, or donate items from our Amazon.com wishlist. Amazon Smile can now be added through the app on your phone. Find it under settings.
*Word of mouth– tell your friends, family, and co-workers about us. Leave a review on our product page so people can see how much you loved your gift.
*We currently ship to the United States and Canada.
*US orders are shipped via USPS Monday through Friday via Priority Mail and take 2-3 business days.
*Canadian orders are shipped through FedEx. Because gifts are subject to customs fees, we have now incorporated those fees into shipping costs. This way recipients won’t have to pay fees on arrival of their gift. We have greatly reduced the cost of shipping, and delivery timeline by switching carriers and hope you find this new process much smoother.
*Free delivery (for those who live locally within 10 miles of Sherwood, OR).
*How can I donate items to your boxes?
If you are a business, and would like to donate products for our gift boxes, or would like to partner for a fundraiser we would love to hear from you! Please reach out to us through the contact page, or by emailing us: firstname.lastname@example.org
*Please note, we are not looking for promotional pamphlets, coupons or samples.
If you would like to donate items privately, we have an Amazon Wishlist with The First Years Infant Healthcare Kit. We are always in need of them, and would love your support with that particular item.

When did we start?
We were officially founded on July 11, 2019.
Who are we?
In Kind was started by a board of four amazing moms, with 11 kids between us.
What’s in the box?
Our gift boxes are filled with 14 high quality essential items for new moms and their babies. We have worked very hard to curate our boxes so that they are safe for both baby and mama, and will be useful for weeks after baby’s arrival. We are very grateful for the amazing partnerships we have with Earth Mama Organics, Kindred Bravely, and Workman Publishing to be able to provide families with such wonderful products on a consistent basis.
*We are NOT a box subscription service.
How does it work?
When someone purchases one of our gift boxes, we donate a box to a mom in need.
We have partnered with some amazing local organizations who are already providing services to families. We donate gift boxes to our partners, who distribute the boxes to mamas as needed.
*Who does In Kind partner with?
We partner with local organizations who provide support to mothers in need. Our list of partners includes: Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center (Women’s Clinic), PDX Diaper Bank, Raphael House Portland, Domestic Violence Resource Center, Ronald MacDonald House of Oregon, Mother & Child Education Center, Sherwood Family Resource Center, Baby Blues Connection and more.
We are always open to expanding our partnerships. If you know of an organization who could benefit from our gift box donations, please feel free to contact us.
