Please join me in wishing my small business formerly known as DBA Mama2Mama Gifts...a happy LLC day. I was in a Zoom meeting with a non-profit organization based in my second home, the USVI, when the paperwork came through.
M2M Gifts LLC is excited to be branching out to the social enterprise B2B environment, as we create radically imagined public/private relationships to scale our (evolving) mission, which is to leverage as much of the untapped potential in mother/women-led ventures, interrupt the status quo, and create sustainable change.
Our recent community partnership that resulted in curated care packages for sexual assault survivors in Chicago was inspired by the NGO-led International Day of Action for Women's Health; however, it was brought to life by grassroots community organizations and woman of color-owned small local businesses.
This project inspired the company's new vision, and I am looking forward to replicating the model with other partners across industries, who believe in leveraging all the best parts of the public and private sectors, and creating sustainable change for some of the world's most underserved populations.
