“The Help A Mother Out campaign is exactly the kind of grassroots effort that is needed today. Social networking in service of supporting mothers in need is a fabulous idea. Through innovation and utilizing the free tools the internet has to offer, HAMO has made a big difference the lives of many women and children, and in such a short period of time.”

“Help a Mother Out is exactly the kind of grassroots organization that Brighter Beginnings appreciates. We are pleased to have been chosen as a partner agency in this effective campaign to connect caring people with moms and dads who are working hard to use the few resources they have to raise happy, healthy children. HAMO’s generous gifts of diapers and other baby supplies came at just the right time to help our organization make up for cuts in our budget for client services.”
Jody Parsons, Director of Development, Brighter Beginnings
“I absolutely love the concept you created for Help A Mother Out. The website is wonderful, not only bringing awareness to family poverty, but also giving people the opportunity to take action and connect with nonprofit organizations. This type of support is much needed, especially during the difficult economic times we are currently facing.
We are seeing more and more families coming to HPP for their basic needs for survival – food, clothing, and shelter. We are hearing families being forced to make difficult decisions, choosing whether to buy food or diapers for their children. Having these essential needs for our clients here on site, makes these decisions much easier for our families, so they can focus on finding stability and move toward long-term self-sufficiency.”

“After learning more about this incredible grass roots campaign, HAMO, I responded with a resounding YES! FSH provides shelter, food and support services to intact homeless families in Santa Clara County. We are the only shelter in the county to focus solely on families so we are always at our capacity of 35 families.
The timing of HAMO’s call was perfect! The Bay Area Diaper Bank, which was the main source of diapers for our families had just closed due to lack of funding. The donations of diapers helped to fill the void left by the closing of the diaper bank. Personal hygiene items, new and gently used clothing and baby items were also collected which were gratefully received by the families.
Not only did HAMO and Sarah help solicit needed items for our families, they also increased awareness of our services and helped facilitate long term supporters.”
