BSTARS: Breastfeeding Sisters That Are Receiving Support, has hosted a walk every year for the past five years in Memphis, Tennessee to celebrate Black Breastfeeding Week. With the continued social unrest and health challenges our country is going through, we reached out to other Black Breastfeeding Organizations across the country to use this unprecedented time to come together in solidarity... virtually to promote awareness for Black Breastfeeding and Maternal Health. Walk with us to show your support!
Track workouts anywhere & anytime and complete goal.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
BSTARS BREASTFEEDING SISTERS THAT ARE RECEIVING SUPPORT
The mission of Breastfeeding Sisters That Are Receiving Support (BSTARS) is to reduce the disparities of breastfeeding rates among Black Women by helping to educate, encourage, support and empower more Women of Colour to breastfeed. This will in turn increase the general health and prosperity for women and families. BSTARS is committed to rebuilding the culture surrounding the health equity of Black women and their families by offering comprehensive support to foster these positive changes.
This will be a fundraiser for BSTARS and the listed Black Breastfeeding Organizations that are teams. Funds raised will be used to help us to continue to provide education and support as well as other BirthWork resources for our families.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.
The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
While registering for the campaign, select the team you'd like to join or create a new team and invite others to #GetFitGiveBack with you. If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
