Community is key and we aim to create opportunities for our community to come together for fun, engaging and supportive events throughout the year. Here are our current upcoming events:
Our First Community Fundraiser!
Thursday, October 26, 2023
@ Yo Soy Candle, 724 NE 22nd Ave, Portland OR 97232
Sip, Shop, Create and Support Portland Families!
Help us end the maternal health crisis! Join Portland New Family Fund for a fun, rejuvenating, and creative evening at Yo Soy Candle / The Candle Creation Bar and support local women/birthers and their babies.
Your ticket includes:
All materials and guidance to create a custom-scented, affirmation soy candle to take home.
VIP shopping access to unique artisans: Yo Soy Candle, Amy Olson Jewelry and Torrain Recycled Bags.
Local treats from vegan Shoofly Bakery, wine from woman-owned Ora et Labora and Mac Wines, and N/A bevvies.
This is so much more than a fun night with like-minded friends, it's a chance to make a difference! Proceeds from ticket sales go directly to Portland New Family Fund to support PNFF birth & postpartum doula programs for low-income Portland parents. Additionally, 10% of all in-store sales during the event will be donated to PNFF. U.S. Women are 3-times as likely to experience death or serious complications during and immediately following childbirth than women in other wealthy nations. While Black U.S. women are 3-4-times as likely as white women to experience these negative impacts. Doula care is an immediate way to mitigate these poor outcomes for our birthers and their babies.
