When we recently learned about the Cal-SAFE (School Age Family Education) School we of course jumped at the opportunity to supply them with some Glow Mama. What an amazing organization - developed and run by volunteers - they provide nutritious food, support and lessons to 35 pregnant and parenting teens aged 15-18 in Oakland. They have dedicated teachers, on-site childcare, school supplies and baby gear all accessible. And, as if the founder and teachers weren’t inspiration enough, check out what the gorgeous girls themselves said when I asked them what made them glow…
“When I was pregnant the thing that made me glow was the life inside me. Having a growing baby made my face brighter and more beautiful.” Jordana Smith
“I feel that people make me glow more when they acknowledge that I am pregnant. Seeing other babies makes me glow because I think about mine.” Alexis Farrell
Cal-SAFE is always looking for donations (good food, yoga equipment, baby gear, doulas and birthing educators, etc) so they can continue their good work… So go on, donate… we do!
