‘Mompreneurs’ raise money for charity

A group of “mompreneurs” held a fundraiser and morning of community service in South Philly to teach their kids the value of giving back on Mother’s Day.

The event was held at Beehive at Bok community playspace in the Bok building at 1901 S. 9th Street and all donations for play and activities, like a tattoo station, arts and crafts and a lemonade stand, went to charity.

Mompreneur Rachel Daulerio, an E Passyunk resident and owner of Beehive, donated all proceeds to Moms Demand Action, a national anti-gun violence nonprofit with a PA chapter that recently held a rally in South Philly on May 13.

The Momprenuers are Philly moms who started their own business to help better take care of their families and work in a more flexible way. The group convenes on What’s App to provide 24-7 support, resources, and advice to each other.

New mompreneur of Achieving Good Communications, a nonprofit communications veteran and former Pennsport resident, Stef Arck-Baynes said, “Teaching kids to give back to their community helps build empathy and kindness. We all started our businesses to support our kids and now they’re helping support others — we’re so grateful for these opportunities
