Because Every New Mom Deserves A Village:
When my son was born in 2011, I struggled. Fortunately, I had a great village to help me adjust to being a new mom. Not all moms have their proverbial village to help raise a child.
MomsBloom is a non-profit organization that encourages new moms. It is a volunteer-driven group of women who raise awareness about PPD, offers in-house support to new moms, and helps new moms make connections in the community. MomsBloom advocates for healthy babies and families in West Michigan.
I joined MomsBloom as a volunteer in 2012, to help provide a village to other new moms who were not as fortunate as I was. As MomsBloom grew, I utilized my background in communications and knowledge of social media to help MomsBloom grow its online presence: https://momsbloom.org/
In 2014, we launched our first #GivingTuesday campaign. We surpassed our modest goal of $1000 donations by 25%! It was so rewarding to contribute to the success of this great organization, which is why I continue to support MomsBloom as a Social Media Manager, organizing volunteer drives, creating online communities for new moms, and launching another #GivingTuesday campaign this year. I hope to double last year's donations using the social media tactics shared by #GivingTuesday and reaching out to our volunteers and the over 1000 families we have served in West Michigan!
Review from #MyGivingStory
In this day if far flung families, where help is not always readily available, MomsBloom fills the void. They provide caring and much needed help to all who need it at no cost. This is one of my top organizations to support because of the tangible good they do.
Thank you, Maria! We are grateful for your unwavering support! Sara
I had the wonderful help from Angie, Momsbloom Volunteer Coordinator, as my post partdum dula when Momsbloom was just an idea and not yet established. Back then I could see the passion Angie had to provide good care and support for women from all different walks of life. It is with determination and understanding of not only motherhood but womanhood that Momsbloom can flurish in times of adversity whether it be their own or their clients.
Thank you so much for your review Drea! Angie enjoyed and valued the time she had with you. I'm glad it was beneficial. Thank you for your continued support!
I cannot put in to words how lucky we are to have MomsBloom in our community. I went to a fundraiser just because I wanted to support them but found myself on the receiving end months later when I realized that my growing anxiety was late-onset postpartum depression. MomsBloom was the caring, reassuring voice that listened, supported, and encouraged. I love them!
Thank you so much Emily for your support of MomsBloom! We were thrilled that we could be there for you during your time of need and major transition. You are forever a part of the MomsBloom family.
