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.
Why did we start In Kind?
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.
What’s in the box?
Our gift boxes are filled with 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, and 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.
