Join us on Monday, January 29, 2018 for our 2nd Annual Pay It Forward Day.
Pay It Forward Day is a way to remember our sweet Allison Ruth by performing a small act of kindness for someone else. Nothing is too big or too small – buy a coffee, pay for a lunch, write a handwritten note, or spend an hour volunteering with an organization you love.
Please let us know you are thinking about us by sharing how you helped to brighten someone’s day on our Facebook event, or just let us know that you did. And thank you for keeping our family in your thoughts on Alli’s 3rd Anniversary in Heaven.
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. ♥️
Hi! I’m Melanie – Alli’s Mom. When we started Princess Alli Foundation in 2015 we couldn’t have imagined how blessed we would be through our Hospital Care Package Project. Not only do we find great comfort in helping other families that have found themselves in a crisis situation, like we did, but we love knowing that our sweet girl will not be forgotten.
Thank you for helping to build my daughter’s legacy – we couldn’t do it without you!
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 toSparrow Health Systemjust 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!
On March 12, 2014 we welcomed the most amazing little girl into the world. Allison Ruth was the perfect mix of sweet and sassy. She loved people. She taught us so much about life and unconditional love.
Since we formed the Princess Alli Foundation in May of last year we have provided 2,170 care packages to families at Sparrow Hospital and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in honor of our sweet girl.
Please help us celebrate Alli’s 2nd birthday with a $2 tax deductible donation towards our care package project.
Happy New Year! Here are our December 2015 Updates!
Our 2015 Holiday Care Package Campaign was an amazing success! Over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays we were able to provide 440 care packages to inpatient families at Sparrow Hospital.
Our care packages provided soups and pastas, cookies, muffins, bars, treats and more to ensure families did not need to miss a meal while their child was inpatient. Handmade prayer shawls, slippers and coffee kozees were generously donated to help make their stay more comfortable.
THANK YOU to our amazing holiday sponsors and crafters for helping us bring the holidays to the hospital.
Please stay tuned for information on how you can be a holiday sponsor in 2016!
Thanks to your generous support we have been able to purchase enough toiletry supplies to begin bringing care packages to families at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids in January!
Stay tuned for details on our Dough for DeVos Pizza Fundraiser, which we will be launching in early January to help support this project in 2016!
