Mother's Day Fundraiser: A Home for A Mother of Six

Mother's Day is a tender topic for many of us and the second Sunday in May comes with many mixed and heavy emotions.


At Smitten Kitten we wanted to do something very special in honor of this day by uplifting Moms who have lost children.

You are ALL INVITED to join us in uplifting one incredible family and their amazing Mom, local activist and healer, Marea Perry! Marea is the recipient of the most recent Catriceology® Homes For Black Women™ campaign and we hope to fully fund her campaign this month!

Home for a Mother of Six in the Twin Cities

We need your contributions and support to help Marea Perry, a mother of six children, community activist and healer turn her pain into power, healing and create a safe haven for her and her children.  Marea has been putting her boots on the ground and serving the Twin Cities community for over a decade and continues to show up for families affected by community violence and police brutality.
Why? Because she loves her community and humanity and has been personally affected by community violence by losing her 21 year-old son Quez to community violence in 2019. She knows what the pain and grief feels like and chooses to show up and support families to help them turn their #PainIntoPower. Marea is a phenomenal mother, a committed community member, dedicated activist and a loving soul who knows how to love people through their pain.

In 2018, she lost her home due to a fire and for the past three years she has been working to keep her family together and housed all while dealing with the loss and grief of her son's death. In spite of her challenges and grief, Marea consistently shows up for her community and other people dealing with loss and grief. It's time for Marea to have a safe place to call home so she can continue to keep her family together so they can not only adequately heal but thrive and experience joy! You can help her do that by contributing to this campaign. 

With this goal in our heart, the Smitten Kitten is giving 100% of our proceeds on Sunday, May 8th (Mother's Day) to the "A Home for A Mother of Six" GoFundMe campaign!
