|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!
If you want to relive the magic, please watch the film by filmmaker devondeleña.com.
