From Mothers to Mothers, The Final Stretch!

Hello everyone!

This past month, we have had 73 donors and raised $5660, which is enough to distribute 368 books to health clinics and community centers!

Our new goal is to break the record and get 100 donors so we can earn the #1 spot on UC Berkeley’s Crowdfund past projects. We currently have 73 donors and need 27 more donors by March 31st (when our campaign ends) to achieve this! If you haven’t given already, will you join us and be one of our new 27 donors? Any gifts of any size will help! There’s only one week left! By the way, you can make second gifts too if you feel so inspired through this link here:

Lastly, we’ve heard from many of our donors on why this project is so important to them. Please check out the video by our alumni, Khae Saetern, on what this project means to her.

 

Thank you for granting greater community access to centuries of food wisdom and supporting women’s health by inspiring future postpartum research.

There are only 10 days left to donate! We will continue the fundraising campaign online until March 31. Each additional $100 will enable us to donate another 7 books to new mothers through community clinics. Let’s aim for $6,000 :)

Launching of the Postpartum Folklore Project: From Mothers to Mothers

Hello everyone!

As a part of the AAPIHRG Postpartum Folklore Project, we have launched our first ever crowdfunding project on Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 at the UC Berkeley crowdfunding website to raise funds to print and distribute copies of our multicultural postpartum recipe cookbook, From Mothers to Mothers, to local cultural centers, schools, community health clinics.

This project was first developed back in 2014 by Dr. Marilyn Wong and students in AAPIHRG whose goals were to preserve centuries of food wisdom of AAPI immigrant and refugee women and to strengthen intergenerational bonds. Since then, we have collected over 15 traditional postpartum recipes and compiled them in this cookbook in hopes to preserve and share this knowledge with new mothers and the community.

Thanks to the generosity of our early supporters, AAPIHRG’s crowdfunding goal of $3000 was reached in TWO days!  We were told that this was a record for the UC Berkeley crowdfunding online portal. We will continue the fundraising campaign online until March 31st, 2017.  Each additional $100 will enable us to donate another 7 books to new mothers through community clinics. Please continue to support us in our goal!
