BENEFITING: Mom to Mom Child Poverty Initiative Society
ORGANIZER: Mom to Mom Child Poverty Initiative Society
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
"For some moms, the volunteer may be the first unpaid person in her life who is just helping out of a sense of compassion and who doesn’t have any power over her – to judge her, or remove her children."
Mom2Mom is a Vancouver-based charity that pairs volunteer moms with other mothers who could benefit from compassionate support. The mentors provide respectful, non-judgmental support to other moms and children and connect them to resources in their community.
This is my first half marathon! I decided to raise funds for this charity because its about empowering women to raise their families in the best way that they can. It's personal and small-scale, the women in need are the ones in charge, and helping mothers is often the best way to help kids have better lives!
