Featured Non-Profit: HAPPYBOTTOMS

Let’s help support local families in need! #WaldoGivesBack

Waldo is hosting a Virtual Donation Drive to help raise money for, which is headquartered in the Waldo neighborhood and is in need of support this month. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. If we reach our goal of $500 by April 17th, Paige Fowler of Edward Jones Financial has made the commitment to match us an additional $500! Simply visit their website, fill out their donation form and select the ‘Waldo Drive’ tab!
Traditionally, April is HappyBottoms’s Diaper Drive month when the community donates upwards of 50,000 diapers. During this time, HappyBottoms is unable to accept diaper donations and can only accept monetary donations. Every dollar counts. If you can support this incredible cause that supports our local community, it will make a difference.

About HappyBottoms

HappyBottoms provides diapers to families in need in Kansas City.

HappyBottoms mission is to positively impact the mental, physical and financial stability of a family in crisis and need through diaper assistance, education and connection to services. Diapers are not covered by government assistant programs like Food Stamps and WIC and 1-in-3 moms do not have enough diapers to keep their baby clean, dry and healthy.  Not having enough diapers impacts the mental and physical health of a child and their family, and has a larger economic impact on the community.

Each month, HappyBottoms sends an average of 250,000 diapers into the community.  The current economic devastation is impacting even more families and the need has increased incredibly the past few weeks.  We are doing all we can to set up new distributions and help even more families in the coming months. In 2019, HappyBottoms distributed 2.2 million diapers to more than 10,000 children.

Follow our fundraiser on Facebook.

Your donations help. Thank you Kansas City!

Featured Business: HAGOYAH

Meet featured business: HAGOYAH Hair Studio & Yoga Den.

HAGOYAH is a unique small business based in Waldo at 515 W. 75th Street that offers radical self-care and holistic beauty services including haircare, yoga, massage and more.

(Please note: HAGOYAH is currently closed temporarily due to COVID-19, but we still wanted to share the inspiring work that they do to support Waldo through their positivity and meditation tips.)

Q&A with HAGOYAH’s owner, Angela Cronk.

What is your business story?

I wanted to bring back that once a week element of self-care and community our grandmothers had back in the day when they would get their hair “set” once a week as well as make yoga affordable and accessible for people.  I resigned from my corporate Paul Mitchell job, went back to waiting tables and renting a chair to do hair.  I sold EVERYTHING I owned to pay for yoga teacher training in 2010 and saved all my money to go towards the business.  I took a class through KC Sourcelink/S.C.O.R.E. on how to write a business plan and wrote a business plan.  I actually called over 30 banks before getting approved and only got $36,000 and the rest is history.

Why did you choose Waldo for your business?

Waldo was still a hidden gem and it just felt like the right place for my unique business.  And after meeting my potential new landlord, Diane Botwin I knew it was the right place.

What can customers do to support you? 

Stay positive and do nice things for themselves.  If they can afford it, purchasing gift certificates and attending our online yoga classes, which are only $5 each.

Beyond your own, what’s your favorite Waldo business & why?

That’s a tough one.  I can’t pick just one, so I will go with the top three.  Centered Spirit & Emilie’s French Tea room.  They have several holistic health practitioners and the tea room is so charming and relaxing.  I am really digging the new SOAP KC shop.  I love everything about this concept.  And, Papu’s Cafe is mega delicious.  I crave their hummus and gyro meat.

Favorite thing about the Waldo community? 

I love that it has a small-town feel with the shared love between the neighborhood and the businesses.  Waldo has its own unabashed unique vibe and we are proud of it.

Resources for Businesses during COVID-19

Our goal is always to provide you the most up-to-date information to make smart decisions whether you live, work or play in Waldo. Here is more information from trusted resources to answer any questions you may have during COVID-19.

Tips for Businesses on Cash Flow:

Tips provided by Missouri SBTDC (Read full article)

  • Evaluate new distribution methods – Look for ways to boost your newly limited in-person traffic.  Could you still be solving problems for customers but in different ways?  Does creating a subscription service, setting up e-commerce, adding delivery, or implementing curbside service benefit your customers?  We at the Missouri SBDC have a pet store client now offering same-day local delivery to help customers and their pets get what they need while safely in their homes.  Now is definitely the time to creatively adapt, if you’re able.
  • Bill sooner and collect faster – If you offer credit to customers, be sure to bill them promptly. Right now we recommend ensuring that you’re billing just as soon as work is completed.  Then consider your collection practices.  The time might be right to consider offering your customers a small incentive if they then pay what they owe you super quickly.  At a minimum, you need to be following up on receivables a few days before they’re due to ensure your customers remember the invoice and plan to pay on time.
  • Hold off on major purchases – While things are so uncertain, big capital expenditures should be postponed if at all possible.
  • Manage inventory – Inventory is essentially your business’s cash sitting on a shelf.  Now is a great time to consider canceling or delaying planned inventory purchases.  Get creative with current inventory on-hand.  Can it be returned or exchanged with your vendor? Are there ways to incent customers to buy current inventory using discounting or other incentives?  More ideas for managing inventory can be found here.
  • Reach out to your business insurance agent –  Some business insurance policies may cover situations like COVID-19, especially if you carry a business continuity policy.  You may have Force Majeure coverage providing assistance for financial losses arising out of the inability to bring a project to completion.  Reach out to your agent to see what, if any, coverage is applicable to you.
  • Consider reducing your payroll expenses – We entrepreneurs are only as strong as our teams.  That is what makes managing payroll so hard in light of the likely impact on your co-workers who are often also friends.  However, unprecedented times possibly call for unprecedented measures.  At this point, you should at least begin postponing new hires and considering reducing hours and laying off nonessential employees.
  • Pay your bills slowly – While things are in flux, do not pay your bills any faster than you have to. Take advantage of the full agreed payment terms to hold onto your cash longer.  The goal should be to pay your creditors as slowly as possible without incurring a negative consequence.  You should also reach out to all suppliers, creditors, landlords, and banks for possible modified payment terms.  Many banks are already offering to modify their existing loans down to interest-only or no payments for the coming 3-6 months.

Loan Information for Small Businesses: 

SBA Disaster Loans

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is offering designated states and territories low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Upon a request received from a state’s or territory’s Governor, SBA will issue under its own authority, as provided by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplement Appropriations Act that was recently signed by the President, an Economic Injury Disaster Loan declaration.

What businesses are eligible to apply?
SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans (or working capital loans)
are available to small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives,
small aquaculture businesses and most private non-profit

This includes:
• Businesses directly affected by the disaster
• Businesses that offer services directly related to the businesses
in the declaration
• Other businesses indirectly related to the industry that is likely to
be harmed by losses in their community
(Example: Manufacturer of widgets may be eligible as well as the
wholesaler and retailer of the product.

The SBA website has experienced high demand and outages.  When the website is offline, you can still apply via by uploading your filled out forms through a link on that page or by scanning and emailing your filled out forms to  The SBA recommends checking the main application page for availability one final time before submitting via these alternate methods as their online application portal is still the fastest, best way to get your information into the hands of their underwriters.

Waldo Area Business Association COVID-19 Coronavirus Response

** UPDATED: Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at 11:30am **


Dear Waldo businesses, community members and stakeholders,

Here in Waldo, the safety and wellbeing of our community is the top priority for the Waldo Area Business Association (WABA) and the Waldo CID. In light of our mission — to serve as champions of our community while preserving and advancing our vibrant, inclusive culture — we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 Coronavirus landscape. We are working diligently to ensure the health and safety of our Waldo community comes first. With that said, we will be closing our Waldo office so that our staff can safely work from home for the time being. Our Waldo security team is still available for all of your immediate needs and we can always be reached by ☎️ at our regular office line: 816-286-4523 or 📧 at

If you own or work at a Waldo-area business, we’re here to help. We understand the challenges that lie ahead, and we recommend the CDC website as an excellent resource for information about protecting yourself, your patrons and mitigating the spread of Coronavirus.

Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas Thursday March 12, 2020, issued a proclamation declaring a state of emergency for the city. The state of emergency has been declared for 21 days, and during that time, all events with more than 1,000 attendees within the city are canceled or delayed.

** Current recommendations:

In accordance with the latest CDC guidance announced by President Trump, Mayor Lucas has updated his State of Emergency proclamation to disallow any gathering or events with more than 10 attendees.


  • With the support of superintendents from all 14 school districts and other education leaders that educate Kansas City students, all schools, public, private, charter and parochial, will close no later than Wednesday, March 18, until the end of the emergency notice.
  • Restaurants and taverns should serve customers via drive-thru, pickup, or delivery.
  • Businesses are strongly encouraged to evaluate which employees are essential and allow non-essential employees to work from home.
  • No visits to nursing homes and retirement or long-term care facilities are permissible.
  • Entire households are required to self-quarantine if someone in their home tests positive for COVID-19. They are also strongly encouraged to self-quarantine if anyone in their household is exhibiting symptoms consistent with common symptoms of COVID-19 (i.e. fever, dry cough).

“I care first and foremost about the health and safety of all Kansas City residents, and this decision was not made lightly,” said Mayor Lucas. “We understand these drastic measures will have unprecedented impacts on our local businesses and working families and recognize that this is one of the most challenging periods our city and nation has ever faced. I know for certain that our residents will band together during this period of crisis to offer assistance and support to each other.”

We encourage wisdom and discretion as you determine the best steps for your business, your patrons and your team members. Take time now to proactively and preventatively plan. For further information, here is a CDC resource on how to keep the workplace safe. And the Small Business Administration (SBA) has additional recommendations for businesses and employers to prepare.

Keep your customers informed of any changes or decisions you’ve made, using your website, email or social media channels. This is also an ideal time to make patrons aware of ways they can help local businesses, including take-out orders, purchasing gift cards, placing over-the-phone orders, online sales, etc.

If you attend WABA networking or WABA-hosted events, please continue to monitor our website for cancellation notifications. We have chosen to cancel our next three March networking events, including our March 18 luncheon, March 31 happy hour and April 9 quarterly networking.

We will evaluate further events individually as dates approach. Decisions will be made in response to guidance from the CDC and World Health Organization, both of which currently recommend the postponement of large gatherings to minimize virus transmission. We look forward to rescheduling events when it’s wise to move forward, and we’ll continue to communicate through email and our website. Other WABA and Waldo CID board and committee meetings will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis in real-time.

If you live, work or play in Waldo, we encourage you to follow the CDC’s recommended steps to prevent illness. The CDC’s recommendations include cleaning your hands often, avoiding close contact, staying home if you are sick, covering coughs and sneezes, wearing a face mask if you are sick and cleaning and disinfecting.

We encourage wisdom and discretion as you make decisions in coming days and weeks, and we encourage you to consider how best to support our Waldo-area businesses. No matter what, communities need to stick together through thick and thin — and so we encourage businesses and neighbors alike to reflect on the following as you plan and decide.

  • Who can you talk to now, like staff, neighbors or family, to make a smart plan for the future?
  • How can you support your neighbors and business community digitally, to keep up on one another’s needs and health?
  • If you’re able, can you donate to a KC food bank or donate supplies to a homeless shelter?
  • Can you purchase items from local businesses and services so things might be less lean for them in coming months?
  • If you or people you serve in your business are at high risk, how can you start hard conversations about how to isolate those who become ill and keep the community safe?
  • If you’re able, how can you connect with your local service providers about creative ideas on how to continue delivering services and keep everyone safe?

While the future is uncertain, we remain positive about Waldo’s business community and thankful for all the incredible businesses that make this an excellent place to live and work! Take care of yourselves, one another and your families.

All the best,

Executive Committee
Waldo Area Business Association Board of Directors

Kate Nielsen, President
Bethany Dyche, 1st Vice President
Angela Braun, 2nd Vice President

Pre-Halloween Nosferatu Watch Party!
Kansas City Bier Company
310 W 79th St, Kansas City, Missouri 64114
Saturday at 7 PM – 9 PM
We’re getting in the Halloween spirit, German-style, with a watch party of the 1922 German Expressionist horror film, Nosferatu — considered one of the all-time greatest horror films — complete with a live soundtrack performed by Kansas City pianist Rich Hill.

Filmed in 1921 and released in 1922, Nosferatu was an unauthorized adaptation of Dracula, the 1897 Gothic horror novel by Bram Stoker, starring German actor Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. Stoker’s heirs sued over the adaptation, and a court ruling ordered that all copies of the film be destroyed. However, a few prints of Nosferatu survived, and the film came to be regarded as an influential masterpiece of cinema.

According to legend, the film’s original score composed by Hans Erdmann was to be performed by an orchestra during the projection, and the original music was recorded during a screening of the film — but was eventually lost.

Throughout the history of Nosferatu screenings, many composers and musicians have written or improvised their own soundtrack to accompany the film. We’re continuing this tradition with Kansas City pianist Rich Hill, who will provide a live soundtrack accompaniment during the screening.

From 6-10 PM, order any klassiker bier (Dunkel, Pils, Helles Lager or Hefeweizen) and a traditional or Dunkel brat for $8.
