When I set out on this journey to start a non-profit (HHope), I did not know how everything would come together but with the support of family and friends the dream has come to life. On the HHope website I wrote a blog telling everyone more about who we are. Currently, we are planning a baby shower for the sweet teen mommies of Alief ISD. This is a huge partnership for us and we are so excited to come alongside them and offer our support. In order for us to host this event, we need your help!
Please see the information for the #EssentialsForMommy Campaign. We are looking for Individuals,businesses, women’s ministries, and small groups (aka home groups, life groups, Flow groups, grow groups, etc.) to help us by sponsoring a mommy. Groups can come together to financially donate so we can shop for the donations or they can buy the items and we will pick them up from you.
To financially support a mommy it is $150. If you would like to participate in buying the items needed for each mommy please see the list and instructions below.
What each mommy needs:
Step 1. Buy a Diaper Bag
Step 2. Fill the diaper bag with at least 10 of the items listed below:
- Hand sanitizer
- Burp cloths
- Neutral colored baby clothes
- Travel size diaper cream
- Soft baby blanket/miracle blanket (swaddling blanket)
- The little travel reusable ice packs
- Baby socks
- Small/travel first aid kit,
- Disposable diaper trash bags
- Mints or candy for Mom
- Shout wipes/or a Tide stick
STEP 3- Purchase Large Box of Diapers (Preferably Huggies or some name brand). Each mommy must have a lar box of diapers.
*You can purchase 276 Huggies size 1 diapers from Walmart for $50.
The total price for the diaper bag, goodies inside, and the diapers will be around $150 or less.
While you are shopping for items, please take pictures and hashtag #EssentialsForMommy #HHope
Please consider partnering with us! We need to gather donations for 15 mothers by October 24th. If you are interested in sponsoring a mommy please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for dreaming with us!
**Important note*** We are in the process of completing the 501 (c) (3) application, however, until we submit our application to the IRS, your donations are not tax-deductible. Once we are able to accept tax deductible donations, we will let you know. Thank you!
