I wanted to publicly thank all of you who came out tonight to pack care packages on such short notice. Moments like tonight, where such an overwhelming amount of support appeared with hours notice, just reaffirms to me how special Allison is and what an important thing this is that we do in her memory and honor.

We packed all of our Christmas care packages in a matter of 36 minutes with this amazing group!! That has to be a record!!

These next weeks are not easy ones and tonight was a beautiful moment for the Princess Alli Foundation Family to feel loved and supported. Thank you for stepping up tonight for Alli. ♥️

This past Sunday the Youth Group opened their “Mission Cafe” and offered snacks and drinks by donation with the proceeds benefiting Princess Alli Foundation!  Their efforts not only raised enough funds to purchase our first Holiday Care Package Sponsorship, but also provide more than three weeks of food and toiletry care packages to Sparrow Health System!
 
In addition to fundraising, the Junior High Youth made “Busy Bags” full of kids activities for our inpatient friends.

Happy Anniversary Princess Alli Foundation

Happy Anniversary Princess Alli Foundation

After Alli passed away in January 2015 we knew that we needed to find a way to honor her memory and help other families that were fighting for their sick children. It was one year ago this week that I presented the idea of a memorial foundation for our sweet daughter to a small group of friends and family, and we set in motion plans to begin bringing care packages to Sparrow Health System just a couple of short weeks later.

We are quickly approaching the first week of May and the anniversary of that first delivery and plan to celebrate it with the delivery of our 2,500th care package! I can hardly believe how much of an impact we have been able to have in just a year!

THANK YOU to all of you that have donated towards our care package project, our start-up fund, or our holiday campaign! THANK YOU to the crafters, the post forwarders, the FB likers, and the prayer warriors! We couldn’t have done any of this without you! Thank you for helping us build Allison’s legacy!

Happy Anniversary Princess Alli Foundation! Here’s to an exciting 2nd Year!
