BENEFITING: HealthConnect One

THE STORY:

Thanks to the overwhelming feedback and the strong interest that we’ve received for our Crowdrise Campaign to send Community Health Workers (CHWs) to our Washington DC, Racial Justice Summit in March 2014, HC One has decided to extend this fundraiser until February 15, 2014! We are committed to sending advocates to Washington D.C. to give a voice to millions of babies and their families.

We have already raised enough money to send 5 CHWs to DC in March. Our goal is to send 5 more!

Why does HealthConnect One want to send CHWs to speak with our nation’s lawmakers?

Because we are at a critical time where the work and expertise of these CHWs cannot and should not be ignored! CHWs are on the frontlines and have the most capacity to impact the community, because they are part of that community.

Here is an examples of a CHW that we want to make sure are heard! 

A new mother, with no money and no means of transportation, with a baby in the NICU, was able to breastfeed and give her tiny baby a fighting chance—thanks to the Community Health Worker (CHW) who was right there next to her. This CHW has a lot to tell decision-makers in DC, and you can help get her there.  

Every single new dollar donated will be matched! ($10 = $20, $11 = $22, $20= $40, etc.)
