Dear Friends of The Mother’s Day Project,

Over the past six years, The Mother’s Day Project has raised over $50,000 and supported about 500 new moms with babies in intensive care. While we still wholeheartedly believe in the importance and mission of The Mother’s Day Project, we are reevaluating the most sustainable ways to serve mothers and families as we move into the future. We wanted to share with you– our supporters, friends, and recipients– that we are pausing operations for the organization at this time.

We want to take a thoughtful approach with all of our fundraising in order to ensure we are maximizing the impact of your donations. We learned a lot in our first year as a 501(c)(3) organization, and we hope to find a sustainable approach to fundraising and our programming in the future.

This year, we encourage our supporters to give to Hand to Hold®, a nonprofit organization that provides personalized support before, during and after a NICU stay to help ensure all NICU families thrive. They are doing really incredible work, and provide support to parents all over the country–including here in North Carolina.

If there are other nonprofits that you recommend we connect with in the NICU and maternal health space, please don’t hesitate to reach out and share those ideas.

I am particularly grateful for the support of The Mother’s Day Project board, Dr. Kristine Brown, Tina Sherman, and Lauren Hughes, for their thoughtful consideration of our work moving forward.

Finally, I want to acknowledge that I started The Mother’s Day Project in 2016 as a way to grieve the loss of my own mother. Helping moms in a time of need helped me–and some of our supporters–work through the grief that many of us feel around Mother’s Day. While we are pausing The Mother’s Day Project for now, please know that you are not alone in your grief. We see you and you are loved and supported during what can be a difficult time of year.

With gratitude,

Rebecca Feinglos, Founder & President, The Mother’s Day Project
