Hey Mamas! I’m glad that you want to help make Pittsburgh Brown Mamas better.   Pittsburgh Brown Mamas’ goal for 2017 is to get more moms out to meet ups.  Our motto has always been to help Black moms in the Pittsburgh region be the best moms they can be.  We hope to do this by offering more dynamic meet-up options.

Rather than just meeting up at venues around the city, we’d like to begin offering our mamas more workshops, seminars and opportunities for skill expansion.  Learning to sew, financial literacy, gardening and parenting classes are just a few of the ideas our planning team has thought about.

As you know, we can’t exactly ask professionals to offer their services in exchange for smiles and handclaps.  Long story short, we need money.  That’s why we are selling t-shirts.  By purchasing a Brown Mama t-shirt you are helping us earn the money necessary to create these opportunities for our mothering community.

Each item in our #GoodMama Gear store cost $25. Fifty percent of that purchase goes directly toward developing more meet-up opportunities for Pittsburgh Brown Mamas.  The other half goes back to buying more t-shirts and tote bags.

While we could seek out grant money and other funding sources, we strongly believe in the power of mothers to help mothers.  We know that you want to see our communities thrive.  We look forward to sending your #GoodMama Gear in the mail.  If you’ve already purchased your t-shirt, thank you very much!

  • We’ll what a great idea! I am a local pediatric developmental therapist and blogger. I love what you are doing for our great city! As I was reading your post above I realized we are of similar inspiration. I blog about all things newborn, toddler, and kid related to feeding, sensory development, bonding…you get my drift. I was actually looking to connect this information to the Pittsburgh Community of women and happened upon your blog. I blog alot now because I home school and only work in Pediatrics as time permits. I am also the coordinator for Homeschoolers Of Western PA! I hope we can connect. I blog at swamimommi.com 🙂
