Feeding the Root GIVES 

Through the generous gifts of our community, we were able to donate 69 boxes full of hair care products, tools and education to Bethany Christian Services. Our hope is that this donation will provide transracial adoptive families with the resources they need to support healthy hair maintenance for their children. 


From the overwhelming response, we’ve launched Feeding the Root GIVES. We are now accepting monetary donations and products on an ongoing basis to continually support this community. Your gift also allows us to provide video and hands-on training to adoptive parents, as well as resources to help them care for their curly headed kiddos!

Feeding the Root was a recent recipient of Surrendered Healing's Shine Together Mini-grant. With these funds, we were able to purchase 60 satin bonnets and durags. Through the continual gifts, we are able to keep our "Product Pantry" stocked for families and children we support. Thank you Surrendered Healing
