Mother’s Day—it’s the one day a year that’s truly all about you and your little ones. Maybe you’re looking forward to a leisurely breakfast in bed or a cute card “signed” by Baby. But before you unwind and enjoy a well-deserved day of relaxation come May 11, consider giving back to mothers in less fortunate circumstances, too.
Boppy will celebrate the mama-centric holiday as well as its own 25th anniversary by donating 5 percent of all May profits from their feeding pillow to moms in need. Boppy is working alongside Nurse Family Partnership, who matches financially needy new moms—often teenagers—with public health nurses who assist them before Baby arrives and for the two years following the birth. This service has been intact for over three decades and has helped foster healthier pregnancies and safer home environments, and it has also positively impacted children’s education and their mothers’ employment status.
Taking part in this initiative means you’ll have a new Boppy for yourself or to gift to an expectant friend or relative. The Boppy pillow comes in lots of colors and patterns and helps keep Baby comfy while you nurse or bottlefeed. As your wee one grows, the pillow can help support her as she learns to sit.
Prefer to donate a concrete dollar amount? Give online here through Boppy’s partnership with Captivate.org (http://captivate.org/contests/nfp-explore-keystone) or use the link on Boppy’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheBoppyCompany/app_1393201434248014) from now through May 11. Upon donating $10 or more, you’ll be entered to win a vacation to Keystone, Colorado for two. Pledge larger sums and you’ll be rewarded with a variety of Boppy products, detailed here: http://captivate.org/contests/nfp-explore-keystone/ Even if your own little one has outgrown such items, this is an excellent opportunity to stock up on baby shower gifts for pals who will soon be engaging in their own Mother’s Day celebrations!
