Our organization is holding its 1st annual fundraising event August 17, 2019 and are seeking donations, volunteers, and sponsors.
Our Fundraising Goal this year is $75,000. This will allow us to create our first Ecologically Self Sustaining Community Outreach Center which will include 2-5 acres of quality land on which we will build a Temple/Community Gathering Space, Prayer Garden, Food/Herb Garden, and 3-7 single earth huts for birthing/private supplication.
During our annual demonstration we are asking the community to support us by marching with flowers and decorating their gardens with our flowers. Each flower will be made of Painted Aluminum, including purple petals to represent the life of a mother
and a gold center to represent the life of a child. Flowers will be sold at a rate of $12 per flower, $30 for 3 flower bouquets, and $99 for dozen flower bouquets.
We will also be selling souvenirs with The Birth Guru Logo, March of Flowers 2019 branding, and the Logos submitted from our sponsors. Those souvenirs will include (but not limited to) T-shirts, Pens, Tote bags, Hats, and Notebooks. Prices TBD
We will be holding workshops after the Mark/Walk in order to provide necessary knowledge and information to the public that will enable our communities to best deal with the harsh reality of losing so many precious lives and prevent such in the future.
Our workshop facilitators/speakers are dedicated community activists and experts volunteering their time and expertise for this cause. You can learn more about them below. Recommended (Optional) donation to attend workshops $30.
Please help us raise awareness, reach our goals, and celebrate life by purchasing a Birth Flower!
Each flower is hand made with Aluminum foil and painted by hand with Acrylic paints. Purple represents the honor of Motherhood while Gold represents the precious life of a new soul.
Our Founder, Godis Nanu, created this flower initially as a memoir for all the lives lost due to medical neglect, misinformation, and systemic genocide during the birth and postpartum period. "Soldiers should Never be Forgotten" she says.
This year in August many will be walking in silent solidarity with her and her family at the March of Flowers, holding these Birth Flowers. Others across the nation will be putting them on display in their homes, gardens, and flower pots. In doing so we hope to raise awareness of the current crises denoted by the current IMR and MMR in the USA as well as raise the necessary funds to provide women with the education and sacred space needed to equip them to fight the good fight towards bringing about new life.
We hope that you will join us in step and celebration, this year and each year to come, by purchasing and displaying Birth Flowers of your own. Each individual Flower is $12, Bouquets of 3 are $30, and a Dozen Flower Bouquet is $99.
