It was revealed via the organization Harvest Home‘s Instagram account, that the couple had made a donation through Archewell to the Los Angeles-based charity, which provides housing, support, and other resources for mothers and their children who are experiencing homelessness.
“Happy Mother’s Day today and every day to all moms out there. Thank you for your constant love, your tireless energy, and for showing up and being just ‘enough’. We see you and we love you,” read the Harvest Home caption. “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 post also included two images. The first was a simple card announcing the donation, while the second contained a quote from the letter Duchess Meghan wrote to Harvest Home LA, in which she wrote:
“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. 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.
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.”
