In December we donated more gift boxes than we ever have before! We were able to donate 50 gift boxes to families in need!!! That was made possible because of you. Thank you to everyone who donated to our gift box donation drive. Your generosity on Giving Tuesday was amazing. And we’re thankful to those who held Fundraisers on Facebook for that event. Not only did you help us raise money, but you also helped build awareness for the work we’re doing to help moms. Every action that you take whether it’s giving a moment of your time to give us a review, like or share our posts, send us kind messages, or tag us in your photos. All of it means so much! We’re so grateful for the support you’ve given us this year. We couldn’t have helped the number of families we did without you. In 2020 we helped 465 families by providing them with gift boxes! That’s more than a gift box a day!!!
In December we made gift box donation deliveries to several of our local partners. Domestic Violence Resource Center received 5 gift boxes, as well as a large box filled with Earth Mama Organics deodorant. Megan from DVRC says they’ll be using the deodorant to fill the hygiene kits they give to families. Raphael House PDX received 10 gift boxes. We always enjoy meeting with Quinn and hearing about the amazing work they’re doing.
Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center Women’s Clinic received their fifth gift box donation delivery in 2020 of 25 gift boxes, bringing their total for the year to 125 gift boxes!!!! We have been told that they are currently experiencing a baby boom, so we plan on making another gift box donation delivery very soon! Mother and Child Education Center also received their fifth delivery in 2020, totaling 25 gift boxes for the year. Ronald McDonald House has their annual holiday market where families can “shop” for gifts for free. We are excited to include our gift boxes in that market, and bring some joy to new and expecting mamas staying at RMHC Oregon over the holidays.
We worked hard to finalize some new programs that we will be revealing in the New Year. Maria shared a Reel on Instagram on New Year’s Eve with the exciting news that we have launched a gift box donation program that is open to families in need across the United States! We’re so excited to spread more love and kindness to mamas, and birthing parents in a bigger way in 2021.
Thank you for being here, and supporting our mission to help moms. Wishing you a happy and healthy new year!
