Earlier this month, Natural Resources, which has been providing quality gear, clothing, classes, and support to San Francisco parents for the past 25 years, reached out to its customers for some help, announcing they were in danger of going out of business. Their campaign to raise $45,000, which ends this Monday, has been quite successful, and they're only $5,418 from reaching their goal.

Contributors to the fund may receive special discounts and deals on merchandise and services, including a massage, an advanced breast pump, and discounted memberships to Natural Resources. Payments of as little as $10 are being accepted.

The $45,000 raised will enable Natural Resources to do the following:

  • restock the store with carefully chosen and unique products with a special focus on the most requested, most necessary and practical items needed for pregnancy, birth and parenting such as nursing bras, baby carriers, layette clothing, breastpumps and breastfeeding supplies, and discounted maternity clothes from Maternity Xchange
  • redesign the classroom space with more comfortable seating and an even cozier atmosphere
  • expand their educational and support options, offering the classes, groups and workshops parents want most
