BLACK HISTORY MONTH GIVEAWAY AND FUNDRAISER

For each like this post receives, Doula Love will donate $1 to The Black Parent Initiative, up to $1,000. #black_parent_initiative

Each comment nominating a local family with Black/African/African American parent(s) will enter the family into a self care basket giveaway. The basket was created by local Black-owned business @withlovefrompdx
Black History isn't just about the past, it's also about how today's Black/African/African American individuals and communities are creating new history every day.

In honor of Black History Month, we want to acknowledge and celebrate Black/African/African American parents in our community. Doula Love recognizes that these parents face unique challenges that other parents do not. Black/African/African American families in our local community birth and raise their children in a country where racism is so prevalent and destructive, and in a city that has the distressing distinction of being the whitest city in America.

In addition to the direct work Doula Love provides to the community, we also created this fundraiser/giveaway to nurture Black/African/African American families, an organization that supports them, and a local Black-owned business.

More details on fundraiser and giveaway

This piece is of my late friend #DjMetaphysics This Leo was one of the greatest men I've ever known. Love & intamcy is not always a sexual thing. His friendship taught me that and his transition thrusted me into a cypher of friends, at his funeral, that embody that principle.
