What is something your parents or guardians taught you that you are grateful for?
What is one characteristic about your mother or a mentor that you appreciate and why?
Pregnancy and the birth of a new child can be a very exciting time, however, some women struggle with mental health during or after pregnancy. 1 in 7 women suffer from postpartum depression, or mood and anxiety struggles during pregnancy or after delivery.
While this kit can easily be self-distributed as a gift to a new mother in your neighborhood or community, your can also return your kit to Project Helping.
If you choose to return the kit to Project Helping, your kit will be distributed through a hospital to support a woman shortly after birth. Women in America are still 35 percent more likely than men to be poor in America, with single mothers facing the highest risk. Currently, 35 percent of single women with children live and raise their families in poverty.
The overall success rate for treating postpartum depression is 80%, making it essential for anyone who wants to heal. Create a care package for a new mom that includes mental health resources and self care items for them to take some time for them and know they are supported by others.
Please follow the instructions on this card to create your own Kynd Code. This Kynd Code will be included in the final kit.
*Make note of your Kynd Code. You will use this code at the end of the project.
This is for you to spread extra kyndness to someone in your own life. Consider writing a note to a friend, loved one, or colleague that you are grateful for. Address the note and send it in the mail or give it to someone in person.
DO NOT include this in the finished kit.
** Mother’s love receiving flowers. It can be hard to send flowers through the mail, so make an origami flower bouquet instead!
KyndHub is an online community that gamifies volunteering, acts of kindness, and gratitude.
