2017 Holiday Care Package Project – Sponsorships available!

Our 2016 Holiday Care Package Project was a huge success!  We were able to provide more than 400 food care packages to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, MI thanks to the support of our generous sponsors!  We were even able to provide extra food items to our friends at Bronson Methodist in Kalamazoo!

In 2017 we will once again be providing Holiday Care Packages for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and are excited to be planning Christmas Day deliveries to Bronson, DeVos, and Hurley in addition to Sparrow Hospital!

We have several group/Corporate sponsorships available for purchase, and are also asking for individual donations in any amount to help us cover the cost of this project ($1,200).

US CuddleCot Campaign Initiative

US Cuddle Cot Campaign Initiative

We are humbled and honored to announce our participation in the US CuddleCot Campaign Initiative, a grant writing campaign organized and led by Stories of Babies Born Still (S.O.B.B.S.).

US Cuddle Cot Campaign Initiative

From the Campaign’s Facebook Page:

From the founder of SOBBS and as a mother of a stillborn child thank you so much for taking the time to review the information on the CuddleCot. 

For those not familiar with the unit a CuddleCot is an in room cooling unit that is the size of a small humidifier disguised inside of a Moses basket. Research has proven having a unit available to parents while they are in the hospital encourages families to spend time with their baby. This gift of time allows precious hours for bonding, pictures, plaster molds to be taken and other family members to come and meet the baby before the natural changes that occur in death become more apparent. In addition the baby can now stay in the room with the family the entire hospital stay if the family so desires. While we know this might not be for everyone it does allow families a choice.

Choices become so important very, very important when it seems as if all are taken away and suddenly families go from planning a future to a funeral in the blink of an eye. Every moment spent is a precious gift and as a grieving parent you never know what your heart may need to continue its healing journey weeks, months or even years down the road. Across the board almost all the parents we spoke with wish they would have spent more time with their baby. All the parents who were offered used a CuddleCot are all are very grateful it was available to them. They credit its use as being a solid, healthy way to begin their mourning and grieving journey.”

By partnering with the US CuddleCot Campaign Initiative, Princess Alli Foundation hopes to help secure grants to purchase CuddleCots for Michigan Childrens Centers, in memory of our sweet Allison Ruth.  This Campaign is close to our hearts because access to a CuddleCot when Allison passed would have given us time with her that we were not able to have.  We want to give that gift of time to other families.
