November 2022 Update

In November of even-numbered years, it always strikes me how different the tone is on the second Tuesday of the month compared to the last. While division and separation mark our current elections, it is Giving Tuesday that brings us back together around the shared purpose of helping one another. It is this final Tuesday that reflects our true spirit and unity that can be difficult to find in polarizing times.

November 29 marks my fourth Giving Tuesday at Nurture KC, an event that gives me the opportunity to shine a spotlight on the organization and, more importantly, the cause of reducing maternal and infant mortality. As a member of Nurture KC, you contribute to and support our mission in sustaining the 260+ families we serve each year. Giving Tuesday puts an exclamation point on a year’s worth of services, education and advocacy that is worthy of support on this day and the other 364. The hallmark of our Healthy Start program is the direct impact to families. Your donation helps us fund diapers, strollers, cribs, doula services, transportation to medical appointments and postpartum depression counseling to name a few. Nurture KC serves more families in the maternal and infant health space than any other metro organization.

Please consider giving during this holiday season to our families, knowing that your investment goes directly to their needs. Thank you for your continued support of Kansas City mothers and babies. We couldn’t do this without you!

Executive Director, Nurture KC

Discussing Black Maternal Health
