BELLY BUDS LLC LAUNCHES JOURNEY INTO PREGNANCY BENEFITING LITTLE RIPPLES CHARITY
Belly Buds LLC to Donate Percentage of Profits from New Meditative Series to Chad-Based Darfuri Refugee Preschool Program
LOS ANGELES (December 10, 2014) – Belly Buds LLC, manufacturer of Bellybuds® | Baby Bump Sound System launched today Journey Into Pregnancy, a meditative series of intentional explorations for the expectant mother. Designed to complement an expectant mother’s journey as she progresses from conception through birth, this four-part series begins with meditations on balancing the chakras and continues through the 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimesters. For every album sold, Belly Buds will donate a portion of proceeds to Little Ripples, a Darfuri refugee preschool program tailored to a population exposed to severe trauma.
“Bellybuds has always been about forming a special bond with baby. Journey Into Pregnancy is an extension of this ideology, providing moms-to-be with insightful meditations for all stages of their pregnancy,” said Curtis Williams, Belly Buds founder. “We’re thrilled to have Little Ripples as a partner in this endeavor and could not be more pleased to contribute to their valiant cause.”
Support from Belly Buds will help Little Ripples expand from a school-based program to an in-home model that will serve more children, empower more women, and engage the community at a deeper level. Teachers will continue to receive training and support from early childhood education experts, schools, and supporters in the United States, but will increasingly have more control over the day-to-day operations in this innovative and replicable refugee-led model. Belly Buds funding will also support Little Ripples’ essential daily meal program which in some cases may be the only meal a student receives in any given day due to the increasingly severe food insecurity in the refugee camps in eastern Chad.
“We are so proud to partner with Belly Buds. Their mission to foster powerful and nurturing connections between mothers and their children is what Little Ripples strives to achieve with Darfuri women and children living in extremely isolated and volatile refugee camps,” said Katie-Jay Scot
