We endeavor to increase access to unbiased and family-centered information as much as possible to Portland families. In order to do this, we rely on grants and your donations.
Here are some ideas & what you'll get in return:
$10 +: Parents need scholarships! We want to make our programs accessible to anyone who needs them, not just to who can afford them. You'll get your name as a donor on WebofLifePDX.com and lots of updates on our Facebook Page.
$25 +: Nursing mamas need nursing pillows! We aim to provide all the comforts of home at Web of Life. In exchange for your generosity, you'll get to contribute to our 'Wall of Unsoliticted Advice" + all of the above.
$45 +: Every expectant family should know what to expect! Childbirth prep workshops cost $45, so this level of donation can help a family learn what they need to without breaking the bank. You'll get all of the above plus a great t-shirt and a bumper sticker!
$75 +: Tired arms call for baby wearing gear! We are working to build a baby wearing library. Your donation can help us add to our library and subsitize the cost of a perfect wrap or sling for new parents.You'll get all of the above and a bag of freshly roasted coffee beans from our neighborhood roaster, Extracto.
$100+: We need lots and lots of seating! By summer 2011, we aim to have locations in all four quadrants of Portland. For this amazing donation, you'll get the above mentioned goodies and a mug for that coffee.
$500+: We're gonna need more space, lots & lots of it! All of those chairs are families are going to need a comfortable space to gather together. This level of donation gets you everything mentioned above, plus a customized 90 minute in-home (or office) spa treatment.
$1000+: Let's keep this machine running! Running a program like this costs money. Marketing materials (however shoestring we may be!) are needed. And, as we grow, we're going to need to compensate a grant writer and increase compensation for our group leaders. This awesomely generous donation gets you dinner on me and hand delivery of everything else mentioned above. I'll even personally deliver my amazing travelling aesthetician. Where should we go?
