The goal has been met for this matching program so donations will no longer be accepted. You can still help the families in need in other ways here. Thank you to Hyland's and all of those who donated, as well as our Holiday Helper facilitators, for working to make such a huge difference in the lives of families this holiday season!
Every year during the holiday season Mothering members help each other in a very special way. As part of the Holiday Helper program, our members donate gently used and new items, as well as gift cards, to families from the Mothering community who are struggling financially. Working together we make a huge impact on these families in need.
This year we welcome a long-time friend of Mothering to the program, Hyland's, Inc., a proud manufacturer of homeopathic medicines. Hyland's has approached us with a very generous offer to match financial donations of up to $1,000 toward the purchase of gift cards to help fill needs in our program this year.
The Mothering community would like to extend a huge thank you to Hyland's for helping us make a difference this holiday season.
How you can take part:
We need your help to take advantage of this offer. By making a donation of any amount using the information found below your gift will be doubled automatically.
The beautiful thing about the Holiday Helper program is that you can view the needs of actual members in need and request that your donation go directly to a specific family. Or, if you prefer, you can make a general donation and our Holiday Helper coordinator will apply the money to pressing and unmet needs. No matter how you chose to help, 100% of your donation will be used to help a family.
To donate please send your financial gift via paypal to the address below. Please mention that the money is to go to the Holiday Helper program, and the number of the family you are donating to (if you have a specific family in mind). Review the Families in Need forum for a list of needs and identifying family numbers.
Donation address: Donations through this program are closed. please visit the Holiday Helper forum to discover other ways to help.
