This is a special Giving Day for us - a customer of ours found our giving day page and reached out to us. Her story touched our hearts and we are happy to dedicate our November giving day to her cause.
According to the CDC in 2017, one hundred and ninety four thousand babies were born to women aged 15–19 years. Less favorable socioeconomic conditions, such as low education and low income levels, teens in child welfare system and young women living in foster care statistically are more likely to get pregnant at an early age.
The Georgia Parenting Project is a 501(3)C based in Eatonton, Georgia. While the non profit was setup in 2018, its founder K. Georgette Craig, a teacher for 32 years, has been helping her student communities for a long time. The organization’s goal is to connect parents in need of support with local community resources in an attempt to help aid, educate and support.
They talk about how there are so many books on parenting, but without the tool and supplies, how can these young mothers succeed. In the past year they noticed that their young mothers were having to make critical decisions on whether to buy food or diapers. Parenting at a young age is overwhelming as it is, then having to make such hard decisions is heart breaking.
We salute the work that they do in bringing hope to these young mothers and their children.
Please join us as we support The Georgia Parenting Project for our Giving Day on Nov 8th. Let us help provide parenting tools and supplies for these young mothers. Shop more to Give more.
Thank you for being our customer and believing in us.
