BIRTHING PROJECT USA
November 30, 2012

This organization is truly revolutionary. By building on the assets of the African-American community, and providing the kind of personalized, caring connections that at-risk moms and babies need to overcome the personal and social barriers to healthy pregnancies, safe births, and secure and stable families, they are truly making a difference where many social and medical services cannot despite their best efforts and intentions. By providing a trained, caring volunteer "Sister-friend" who can support the new mama with whatever she needs, help her make the best use of the services available to her, and to believe in herself and her right to a healthy life and family, the Birthing Project is bringing longstanding African values to a modern American problem that we have not been able to fix otherwise- the disproportionate prematurity and deaths of moms and babies of African descent. The founder Kathryn Hall-Trujillo is recognized nationally and globally for her pioneering work. You can help her found a Birthing Project resource center so that this project can be replicated more broadly. Now in over 100 communities worldwide and counting 13,000 babies born into the arms of empowered mamas, its success is unquestioned. Help spread the love to more at risk babies and mamas today, you can make a real difference. Donations made before 12/27 will help qualify us reach a crucial fundraising goal for 2012 that will qualify us for further foundation funding in 2013.
