Your labor has filled us with joy & love! More than 400 stuck with us through the weather!

Our community came together for our Labor of Love Luncheon on February 14th

to give expecting and parenting families facing poverty in King County

the love that all families deserve when welcoming a child.

We are still counting and additional gifts and matches are coming in, but we couldn’t wait to share that

together we raised close to $140,000!


Your contributions will give parents like Yasira, Erica, and Eriona the support of a skilled

community-based doula like Rokea during the life-changing perinatal period.

Thank you for your generosity and investment in our work!

If you were not able to attend, it’s not too late to show your love with a gift!

We would like to extend our gratitude to the special guests who helped create a compelling and inspirational afternoon:

·     Keynote speaker Angela Garbes, Author of Like A Mother, Journalist & Advocate

·     Frankie T. Manning, MSN, RN, 2019 Libin Egal Spirit Award recipient

·     Rokea Jones, Open Arms Community-Based Outreach Doula

·     Erica Armstrong, Eriona Smith & Yasira Njadoe, featured parents

Sincere thanks to our wonderful guests, table hosts, and volunteers. We couldn’t have done it without our extrarordinary event team who prepared for every possibility. Synchronicity Events, you are amazing!
