A Mother's Day Fundraiser: Celebrating the Mothers of Homespace
Homespace Corporation seeks local businesses to feature their favorite item(s) for Mom in our specially curated gift basket or as a donation to our silent auction. Our pre-order gift baskets will include a number of handmade & local items to honor and pamper that special Mama in your life! All proceeds from this fundraiser support the programming Homespace provides to at-risk youth and their children in the foster care system.
For over 25 years Homespace has been providing holisitic, individualized services for youth in foster care between the ages of 14-21. Homespace has developed our programs to support new mothers on their journey to achieving success and independence, two generations at a time.
Homespace is “Home” to over 25 Mothers and their children annually, and we support over 15 additional Mothers and their families living in the community. Your gift to Homespace impacts over 40 at-risk Mothers each year.
Homespace welcomes donated items, but we are also seeking locally hand-made, artisan and self-care items at a cost point of $1 - $8 per item which will allow us to work a donation to Homespace into the cost of our Mother's Day Baskets. Items for consideration must be available in quanities of 50, non-perishable, and available for pick-up by April 30th.
What are we looking for? Items we are looking to include in our Gift Baskets are: Soaps, lotions, bath bombs, body soaks, candles, ceramics, journals, flower bulbs, jewelry, accessories, chocolates, houseplants, tote bags, fragrances, and More!
Each Mother we serve will receive a Mother's Day Basket at no cost, and community members can pre-order a basket which will incorporate a $50 donation to Homespace, personalized in honor of the Mother who they purchased it for.
Your business and items will be featured heavily on our website and social media, crowdfunding and peer-to-peer fundraising pages, and will be shared in our E-Newsletter - reaching hundreds of local folks! You are invited to include a business card or small promotional flyer in the baskets.
Would you like to donate one AWESOME item or gift certificate? We'd love it for our silent auction!
Items we are seeking to feature in our auction are: original art work, art prints, gift certificates, ceramics, home décor, spa treatments, pottery, plants, hand made gifts, jewelry, & collectibles.
