Enter our Mother’s Day Giveaway!

April was a humbling month. While we feared so many unknowns, we saw the kindness from the community manifest in beautiful ways – from Yolonda Ross’ donations to Chef Lamont feeding our mothers for one month to reaching 25% of our GoFundme goal.

We look ahead to #GivingTuesday (May 5th) and Mother’s Day (May 10th), two days in May so meaningful to our mission. Giving Tuesday is a global movement to support causes close to one’s heart. Help us celebrate both! 

  • Donate to our fundraiser by May 5th on behalf of your mom and DOUBLE your donation’s impact thanks to a $1,000 #GivingTuesday matching pledge from GoFundMe! Click HERE to donate.
  • Win flowers for your mom (or mother figure) to be delivered by May 8th! We have partnered with two small businesses, Brother & Sisters Flowers (Oakland, CA) and Resendiz Brothers (Fallbrook, CA) for the flowers. See below for details on how to enter.
