Locally-based Parental Hope has teamed up with a clothing designer to help raise funds for those battling infertility.
“Parental Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the infertility community through emotional and financial support,” Jennifer Bross, Founder of Parental Hope, says. “The burdens imposed on a couple battling infertility are enormous. Because infertility is a little known and often a misunderstood disease, those diagnosed with infertility can feel isolated and alone.”
There are many ways in which Parental Hope is helping to support the infertility community:
The Parental Hope Family Grant alleviates the financial burden of infertility through grants that cover the full cost of IVF and other infertility treatments.
“We also advocate for those struggling with infertility by raising awareness and providing infertility education,” says Bross. “We also have peer-led support groups by bringing those battling infertility together for support.”
To help raise awareness about the issue, and to raise money for those seeking infertility treatments, Parental Hope has teamed up with clothing designer J. Elizabeth.
The designer has created a line of infertility-related apparel, where a portion of each sale is donated to Parental Hope. Designs include adult t-shirts and baby onesies with phrases like “Worth the Wait” and “Made with Love and Science.”
“There is also a Round-Up Program where buyers are given the opportunity to donate to Parental Hope by rounding up their purchases to the nearest dollar,” adds Bross.
Additionally, all of the money donated to the J. Elizabeth Foundation goes to Parental Hope to help support their cause in serving the infertility community.
