Play It Forward!

 

San Francisco is filled with people and organizations doing important work. There are times when those folx could benefit from the pregnancy, birth and parenting items on Natural Resources’ shelves. PLAY IT FORWARD connects organizations who need these items with people who want to donate them, via Natural Resources.

So: pick a cause you want to support, and get them some needed supplies! Thank you!!!

Natural Resources, a nonprofit that supports families through classes, community and safe products, wants to make it easy for all of us to support people doing meaningful work in SF. To help, purchase the items which have been requested. We will coordinate delivery or pickup with them directly.


BLACK BREASTFEEDING WEEK NURSING CARE KITS

Natural Resources is creating 50 lactation kits to go to participants of SisterWeb and Prenatal Yoga Project, both of which support BIPOC pregnant people and new parents in SF. Our goal is to give out 50 Lactation Kits which are $79.95 each. Kits include a Boppy nursing pillow, nursing tea, nipple cream, Comfy-Cozie Spot heating pad, & reusable nursing pads.
We are asking you, our community, to purchase a kit to be donated.
**HELP US REACH OUR GOAL BY THE END OF AUGUST - GIVE TODAY**

Why Black Breastfeeding Week?

“Black Breastfeeding Week was created because for over 40 years there has been a gaping racial disparity in breastfeeding rates. The most recent CDC data show that 75% of white women have ever breastfed versus 58.9% of black women.” Read more
