We caught up with the Good+Foundation about what to know about this top-tier charitable organization.
What should expectant and new parents know about you and your business?
Many new parents living on low incomes struggle to provide essential goods like cribs, diapers and strollers for their children. Good+Foundation is a nonprofit focused on getting families the goods they need to keep their little ones happy and healthy. With your help, we can relieve some of that stress and strengthen families for generations to come.
Good+ works with a network of social service partners so that our donations can have an even greater impact. When a parent going through employment assistance or co-parenting classes receives a much-needed car seat, for example, it can be the boost they need to keep working toward their goals.
What’s new (in the past year) with your organization?
From the start, the majority of the parents Good+Foundation has served have been hard-working single mothers. In an effort to take some of the burden off of those moms, Good+ has expanded its work with programs that engage fathers.
This whole-family approach has been a huge step forward in our work. By providing all parents the tools they need to be active parents, we are seeing stronger relationships and improved outcomes for children.
Which topics do you enjoy connecting with new and expectant parents about most?
We love to connect about what it takes to raise a child. In 2001, Jessica Seinfeld had her first baby and was floored by all that goes into providing for a young child. She had the means and the support system to manage it all, but she recognized that so many others don’t.
What started as a local community drive in New York City has grown into a national organization working in innovative ways to tackle poverty. And we can’t do it without the support of new and expectant parents who are in a position much like Jessica was 18 years ago.
Are you offering any special pre-Show ticket giveaways or discounts on your website or social channels?
We invite any and all attendees to visit our booth to learn about our work and take part in our special “Scan and Give Good+” opportunity. For every virtual email sign-up we receive from show attendees, select brands on-site have committed to donating an essential baby item to Good+Foundation. We’ll have stickers so that attendees can share their impact.
With your support, we can help even more mothers and fathers improve outcomes for their children.
Anything else you’d like to add?
Good+Foundation is honored to be the charity partner of The Baby Show Series. It’s a great opportunity to expand our work as well as connect with new and expectant parents about how we can assist those going through similar experiences. Thank you to all who make it possible for us to help families rise out of poverty.
