We love celebrity moms that give back. Kristen Bell, mom and actress beloved for her role in Frozen, is latest celebrity to give back with her generous donation of $91,500 worth of Bravado nursing bras and Medela breastpumps to expectant and new mothers in need.
Bell's donation directly supports Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing families in need across the country with essential equipment, products, clothing, and educational services for children aged newborn-14. Founded in 2001 by Jessica Seinfeld, Baby Buggy has distributed over 7.8 million new and gently used items from cribs to strollers to clothing and bottles, all of which are vetted for safety, to families in need across the country.
In addition to her charitable contribution of essential items, the Frozen star celebrates her second pregnancy by giving back with a special baby shower. The shower will be hosted by Baby Buggy on her behalf in L.A. Forty expectant moms will be showered with support and invited to enjoy a day dedicated to providing a successful start to their breastfeeding journey. Each mother will receive an extraordinary level of care including sizing assistance from a Bravado fit expert to assure proper fit for their new Bravado nursing bra, as well as an electric breastpump and accessories from Medela.
"As a mother about to have my second baby, I understand the importance of having the essential tools necessary to provide for a newborn. Greater still, I am aware of the immeasurable value of having support systems in place to ensure success on this journey of motherhood. Anything I can offer in support and care to new moms in need remains a huge priority to me," says Bell. "I'm so grateful this partnership with Medela and Bravado Designs allows me to donate and contribute in significant ways by changing outcomes for the at-risk mothers that Baby Buggy strives so hard to support. I am honored that Medela and Bravado are hosting a baby shower on my behalf for some of these moms. Together we will celebrate these mothers-to-be and shower them with the supplies and support they deserve."
This incredible donation will allow the women who receive it to return to the workforce with the tools necessary to work and continue breastfeeding their babies. Bell’s donation is more than just philanthropic; it has the potential to change the lives of these women and have a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of their babies.
