“Yá'át'ééh Relatives,

We have just returned from being on the road for the last 18 days and we are happy to report that we have raised  $6,652.48, combining the two talks we did in Olympia and Portland, as well as this on-line crowdfundraiser! Our goal was to raise at least 10K before returning from our travels, which means we still have another $3,347.52 to meet our immediate needs to move into a larger building, buy supplies and equipment for our clinic, and to start seeing clients at our new location. 

We are extremely thankful for your support through donations and for sharing our fundraising page with your friends and family.  After attending the Salish Seas Indigenous Birthkeepers Gathering, in the Cowlitz territory, in Washington, it is even more clear why the work we are doing is necessary. So often Indigenous and Native American women fall through the cracks of the western healthcare systems in place in our communities, which contribute to our dismal maternal health outcomes. It's time we come together and create new ways of caring for and with our communities that reflects their needs.

Please continue to share our on-line fundraiser and help us get to 10K by this Friday.
