Wait a minute, Isn't facebook free? Why fundraise for a Facebook group? Facebook is free for users but doesn't come with any moderation services. Unmoderated mom groups are emotional danger zones, full of judgment, unsolicited advice, and competitive parenting. MCC provides gentle and loving moderation 24/7/35, which is offered by dedicated and trained volunteers, and our members report feeling a great deal of relief in our moderated safe space. We also provide community education which is why so many of our members report that the skills they learn at MCC help them improve their relationships in the "real world". All of this requires much training, coordination, and content creation. Without community support MCC's existence is precarious, and optional donations by MCC members and contributions from members of the community at large can ensure our ability to offer our service reliably. Your donations will enable us to keep our forums FREE and SAFE for ALL MOTHERS. We have operated with minimal financial support for our first 8 years, but we can't work effectively without community support. In 2020, we intend to continue to expand and deepen our offerings. The time has come for us to ask our members for optional donations and invite community businesses and philanthropists to sponsor our work.
How we will use the donated funds? 1. Moderation support, scheduling, and training: our dedicated volunteer Den Mama Moderators are the backbone of MCC, upholding the safe space that supports thousands of mothers from around the world and across the street. Financial support for moderator attraction, training, and scheduling is currently the number one need of the organization.
Mama's Comfort Camp is a fiscally sponsored project of the Center for Transformative Action, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by governing laws.
A world in which mothers are deeply supported emotionally, physically, and economically, and a community in which all are seen, heard, and held.
To normalize the struggles of motherhood, facilitate the asking (and the receiving) of help, amplify the influence of parents on policy making and allocation of resources, and improve well-being by fostering self-care, self-expression, and a communication culture of kindness.
