The unofficial end of summer is upon us. As we think about all the effort it takes to get our children into the world, and the importance of doula support in our communities, we have started to think of Labor Day a bit differently. 2017 has been full of much hard work (as well as celebration) at CVD and this weekend we are once again raising awareness and funds through our #CVDLaborofLove campaign. Will you join us?
We are using the hashtag #CVDLaborofLove as we make contributions in support of birth justice!
Here are a few examples of posts that you can use on social media:
"My doula spent 16 hours applying counter pressure to my hips, with 23 hours total time at my side! My labor day donation to CVD will be $39 dollars for my #CVDLaborofLove. Please join me!"
"I'm donating $60 today in honor of the six families who my daughter has helped as a doula through their "labor day." For her it really is a #CVDLaborofLove
"My doula met with us before my daughters birth, kept in touch as my pregnancy progressed, gave us tips when choosing a provider more in line with our birth choices and supported our wishes as an advocate in the hospital during her birth. I am donating $100 today to support birth justice, because everyone deserves that advocacy and choice for their birth. Happy Labor Day! #CVDLaborofLove"
Please join our movement, support our organization with a contribution this weekend and share with all your friends to do the same! Tell your story and provide an opportunity for doula services for a family in Chicago's vulnerable communities.
Your labor is our #CVDLaborofLove
Happy Labor Day!
