Amplify Austin is back! For this one day, feel the power of pulling together as a community to support GALS. During this 24-hour online event held from 6pm on March 20th to 6pm on March 21st, people all over Austin will make donations to local nonprofits. Check out our profile: GALS on Amplify Austin.
“40 For 40” : Ideally, the human baby gestates for 40 weeks. We’re modeling our giving campaign after that ideal. We encourage each donor to give a dollar for every week of their baby’s gestation. If you’re not a parent or are on a budget, please consider giving a minimum of $25. Donations are tax deductible!
Feel free to share your birth story in the “Special Instructions” section of your online donation form! With your permission, we’ll highlight some of these stories on our Facebookpage throughout the day. One local mama says, “I’m going to give $39.50 because my baby came right on time! He was sunny side up because he always liked to face out to see the sun shine through my tummy. I labored for 25 hours and when I thought I was too exhausted, I was so glad to have my doula there to help me through it. I was sad they had to cut me, but when they placed my precious boy on my chest I knew it was the best day of my life!”
Our Amplify Austin profile has a “Set It and Forget It” option that allows you to schedule a donation that will process on March 21st. This is a great way to participate in our incentives competitions:
- The very first person to donate to our campaign will win a copy of the documentary Birth Story!
- The first person to donate each hour from 6am – 6pm on March 21st will win a free pass to Yoga Yoga!
- The person to donate the most overall will win a private body work session with licensed massage therapist Iris Reza Bailey!
