Because of the unexpected winter storm devastation that hit Houston earlier this week, today we soft launch our 6th Global Gift Registry for the Houston Area Women’s Center (HAWC), a non-profit that helps survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault rebuild their lives through advocacy, counseling, education and shelter support services. Our global community finds ourselves once again glued to screens with broken hearts trying to understand what went wrong and how we assist. I spoke with Chau Nguyen of HAWC early this morning and we modified our Global Gift Registry to include gifts that will help right now as they try to return their shelter and hotel placements back to normal.
We launched our 5th Global Gift Registry on September 27, 2020 in Los Angeles with Hope Gardens Family Center which is a transitional homeless shelter to 75 mothers, 150 children and 25 senior women. The Global Gift Registry sent almost 1500 gifts to Hope Gardens valuing approximately $17,000.
Our 4th Global Gift Registry launched on August 16, 2020 to support Sheltering Arms Early Education & Family Centers in Atlanta, Georgia. We raised nearly $25,000 in in-kind donations to support the 3500+ children that Sheltering Arms serves each year. Sheltering Arms is a 130 year old non-profit that provides early childhood education. Over 90% of their families live in poverty. Please join us in showering them with love and support.
We launched our 3rd Global Gift Registry, a “baby shower gone large,” on June 28, 2020 for the Primo Center and raised over $38,000 in in-kind contributions to support Chicago's homeless population. The Primo Center was founded 40 years ago in Chicago by Bishop Quintin Primo Jr., the first black bishop of Chicago. It is now the largest non-profit provider of family shelter services in Chicago serving the historically underserved and extremely impoverished communities on the south & west side of the city. Primo currently has 4 homeless shelters, 300 beds and will grow to 350 by end of year (serving 1000+ women, children and families annually).
We launched our 2nd Global Gift Registry, a “baby shower gone large,” on May 17, 2020 for Sanctuary for Families.

In three weeks, Sanctuary raised approximately $51,000 for in cash and 1300+ of in-kind donations: baby supplies, personal care products, non-perishable food, cleaning products, women’s clothing and gift cards.
The Global Gift Registry's novel idea of a “baby shower gone large” was first launched on April 26, 2020 in support of Lotus House Women’s Shelter in Miami, Florida.
