About Us
The Princess Alli Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that was founded in April 2015 to support the families of children with illnesses in memory of Allison Ruth Russcher.  Our vision is to promote family-centered inpatient care nationwide by providing meal and toiletry support to caregivers while in the hospital setting.

Our work is of the utmost importance.

It is common for parents to not be able to leave their child’s bedside for adequate meals, a shower, or to wash laundry during a hospital stay.  Charities that provide services away from the bedside are often not a practical solution for these families who may be cities or states away from the support of families and friends.  Providing food and toiletry support not only makes the caregiver’s stay more comfortable, but also allows them to focus their energy on advocating for and comforting their special child.

We have been serving inpatient families of the RNICU, PICU, and Pediatrics departments at Sparrow Health System in Lansing, MI by providing care packages since May 2015!  In 2016 we expanded our services to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI, Bronson Children’s Hospital in Kalamazoo, MI, and Hurley Medical Center’s Children’s Hospital in Flint, MI.  In 2018 we began shipping care packages to Children’s Hospital of Michigan’s Troy and Detroit locations.

It is our dream to expand services of the Princess Alli Foundation to provide daily service at hospitals NATIONWIDE – – AND WE’RE ON OUR WAY!  Generous support in 2018 has enabled us to work on making our care packages shippable which will allow us to reach families across the United States!  We completed our first round of shipments for our 50 States Challenge in October, and can’t wait to do it again in 2019.

We need your help!

We have several opportunities for you to join in our mission.  From weekly support of our care package project to sponsorship and vendor opportunities with our Holiday Care Package campaign there is something for everyone!

One of our long term goals is to make our toiletry care packages easy to ship so they can be sent out to hospitals nationwide! Today I am trying out new clear self sealing bags while packing care packages for delivery to @devoschildrens this week!

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. It's been 3 1/2 long years since we held this sweet little girl in our arms yet it seems like yesterday she was here with us.

We love you, Alli. Thank you for changing our lives <3

This summer we set a goal to ship toiletry care packages to hospitals across the United States to raise awareness of the need for more resources for families at children's hospitals.

3 months and 2,500 care packages later we've done it! THANK YOU to our amazing sponsors and volunteers - we couldn't have completed this task without you! <3
