In September we were proud participants of the Born This Way Foundation’s #BeKind21 challenge. We spent September 1-21 focusing on acts of kindness we could do for ourselves and for others. It was a great event, and we can’t wait to do it again next year. As part of BeKind21 In Kind was featured in an article by Channel Kindness, and the Born This Way Foundation!! It was very exciting for us and we are so thankful to both organizations for their support!
We also got to donate boxes to one of our newest partners- Clackamas Women’s Services. CWS provides a wide range of support for women, children and families including shelter, crisis support line, counselling and support groups, community education, and culturally specific programming wherever possible.
In September we hosted two giveaways. The first was with The Conscious Kid. For those who aren’t familiar with The Conscious Kid, they are an education, research, and policy organization dedicated to equity and promoting healthy racial identity development in youth. The Conscious Kid is doing amazing things to help people during this crazy time of COVID like rent relief, mattress donations for kids, book donations to teachers and more. We are so happy to have been able to partner with them to offer gift boxes to their followers.
The second giveaway was with Mapel Boutique. The owner of Mapel is a local mama, and we were so excited to partner with a women run business for this event. Mapel carries many products made by women in the US as well. It’s so amazing when we can come together and support one another for giveaways like this.
At the end of September we posted about an opportunity for Doulas and Midwives to be sponsored in 2021 with a gift box a month for the year. This is a chance for birth workers to provide an extra level of support to families in their care. We’re excited to read all of the entries as they come in! The application deadline is November 1, 2020, and the winners will be notified by December 1, 2020.
Thank you for your continued support of what we do. Your purchases and donations make a true impact. I couldn’t do what I do without you.
