This Progress Report was updated
May 8, 2022.
Please be patient with us as we update this page. As of May 8, 2022, more than 16,000 pairs of booties are in hand. More than 80 kits of 100 pairs of booties have been sent to volunteers for stitching. Stitchers are sending completed kits every day. If you can be a back-up stitcher for someone who cannot complete their kit, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list.
$1870 Collected so far towards the purchase of exhibition materials and signage (three banners have been purchased so far at $149 each up to four additional banners are planned), shipping crates, and video of the installation
We have raised $800 through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas. Once we receive $1,000, The Mourning Project will be able to apply for grant funding and corporate sponsors.
$4000 In-kind donations (estimated), including graphic design, website design, photography and videography)

Here is our latest online exhibition, called One Day’s Disparity, which highlights the difference in black and white infant mortality rates in the US. Did you know you are more likely to survive to your first birthday if you are born to a white American woman with a high school education than a black American woman with a college degree?
