Support Natural Resources! A Letter from our Executive Director

 

Dear Parents, Educators, & the Birth Community

Natural Resources needs your support! Natural Resources became a non-profit organization at the beginning of 2016. This was an exciting transformation for us as it allows us to be more fully in line with who we have always been as an organization. Now our instinctive urge to tell people to NOT buy a new baby carrier and to instead teach them how to use the one(s) they already own no longer comes with the a feeling that we are hurting our bottom line and hampering our ability to stay in the community we love.  

 

In the 10 years that I've been a part of the NR family our rent and other expenses have continued to grow without a commensurate increase in income. Online shopping, Amazon in particular, has directly impacted our retail sales. We've even seen many use us as a "showroom" where they get advice about products they then purchase online.  

 

As a small local non-profit we need the community's help to raise the funds we need to be sustainable in this environment, continue to be here for growing families, and expand our offerings. This support allows us to offer scholarships, a living wage to our staff, and more free/low cost classes. It will also allow us to partner with other local organizations to make a stand on social justice issues and to reach a more diverse demographic of families.

 

Please support us and our mission and "Become a Friend of Natural Resources" today! Your donation will help us reach our goal of raising 30K by December 31st. GIVE ANY AMOUNT... no contribution is too small or too big! Whether $2 or $2000, every dollar helps. We've touched so many lives over our almost 30 years; if everyone in our community donated just $5 we would easily reach our goal. Thank you so much for your support and for being a part of our community.

 

It takes a village... Thanks for being a part of ours!

With gratitude,

Bobbi Williams, Executive Director 
Natural Resources All Families Foundation
