- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrated Mother’s Day by donating diapers to Harvest Home, which helps homeless pregnant women and their babies
- According to Harvest Home, couple donated other items and cleaning supplies
- ‘I deeply appreciate the significance of community support, safe and accessible pregnancy resources, and trusted guidance in a nurturing setting,’ Meghan said
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrated Mother’s Day by donating diapers, supplies and other items to an organization that serves homeless pregnant women and their babies.
The organization, Harvest Home, shared news of the donation on their Instagram page Sunday afternoon.
The announcement of the donation came a day after Meghan made her first appearance on American television since the bombshell Oprah interview in March.
The donation announcement didn’t say the value of what was contributed.
‘Today, we are thrilled to have the support of Archewell Foundation, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and Procter & Gamble, who are donating diapers, cleaning supplies, and other essential items to ensure that the moms and babies at Harvest Home are celebrated all throughout the year,’ the caption of the post reads.
According to Harvest Home, the Mother’s Day surprise was accompanied by a personal letter from the Duchess, who is the mother of two-year-old Archie
‘As a mom, and an expectant mom, I deeply appreciate the significance of community support, safe and accessible pregnancy resources, and trusted guidance in a nurturing setting,’ Meghan said.
‘These ingredients are essential to not just our physical health, but our mental well-being, and I commend you for leading a compassionate community that lives these values.’
Meghan continued: ‘Thank you for all you do for the women and mothers who are turned away elsewhere, at no fault of their own.
‘When we consider how vulnerable any mother feels during the fragile time of pregnancy, we gain perspective about how especially difficult it can be for pregnant women of color and those who come from under-resourced and vulnerable communities. I hope you will accept an offer of support to help further uplift Harvest Home’s residents.’
It’s unclear how much was donated to the organization, or whether Meghan and Harry had contributed anything – or if they had just lent their names to the effort and P&G provided all of the diapers and other items.
Meghan and Harry’s act of kindness on Mother’s Day comes as the Duchess shared a message to supporters during the Vax Live telecast.
