Announcing a New Virtual Baby Registry Resource Inspired by Community & Gratitude
Gugu Guru Launches the Village Love Baby Registry and Joins Forces with InLieu to Drive Donations to COVID-19 nonprofits
By: Gugu Guru
The company was inspired to build Village Love because, like many industries, juvenile product manufacturers are feeling the heavy impact caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Village Love is Gugu Guru's way of showing appreciation to all of the brands and products who have made the lives of parents easier, more relaxed and enjoyable – especially during this very unusual and challenging time.
Products will be continuously added to the Village Love registry over the next few months and the site will serve as a much-needed resource for new & expectant parents looking for testimonials and authentic photos of these beloved products in-action. "We built Village Love to showcase the brands that we adore," said Monica Banks, CEO & Founder of Gugu Guru. "As well as for those parents who are building a baby registry and unable to go to physical stores due to the Coronavirus pandemic. After all, everybody needs a village right now and for many of us in the world, the only village we can tap into is our virtual one."
The Village Love collection includes top picks and user generated content from the Gugu Guru team of experts, its parent community and also from the company's celebrity and influencer fans.
In conjunction with the launch of Village Love, Gugu Guru has joined forces with the donation platform inLieu to provide a simple way to give back to COVID-19 relief efforts. Gugu Guru is encouraging its community of parents – if they are able to - to #SpreadGood by donating to a COVID-19 nonprofit in lieu of or in addition to a traditional baby shower, birthday or holiday gift.
"Through our partnership with Gugu Guru, we are trying to make donations as easy as possible for those in the community who are financially able to support COVID-19 relief efforts at this time," said Kathy Terry, founder of inLieu. "Choose the nonprofit of your choice and the amount you want to donate. If you are choosing to donate on behalf of a friend, inLieu allows you to customize your message which is sent to that friend via email or text message along with the notification of the donation."
With the inLieu platform, there are three ways to give back:
