Thank You!

Dear Friends of the Doula Project, We are so very glad to report that we surpassed our fundraising goal for the Bouquet of Choice Spring Fundraiser - because of your kindness, generosity and support we raised approximately $10,000 through our online campaign and direct donations during the Bouquet of Choice fundraising event!!! We promise to put these funds to work supporting pregnant people across the reproductive spectrum in NYC and expanding access to our amazing doulas. Thank you for your donations, promoting our work, and spreading the word about The Doula Project. We are incredibly grateful and continuously in awe of our supporters. Sincerely, The Doula Project
