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. ♥️
Today we had the opportunity to work with a team of volunteers from Emergent BioSolutions in Lansing, MI! In just under an hour these amazing ladies packed 170 Thanksgiving food care packages and more than 200 toiletry bags! Incredible!
We enjoyed getting to work with you, and look forward to volunteering with you again next month! Thank you!!
Would your family, team, or group like to get involved? Please email Melanie@princessallifoundation.org to set up a time to volunteer! We’d love to meet you! <3
THANK YOU to our 2017 Holiday Care Package Project Sponsors for providing 500 food and 400 toiletry care packages to families that find themselves inpatient during the holiday season. Once again we have been blown away by your support for this project!
We look forward to sharing pictures of our deliveries with you!
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).
Group/Corporate sponsors will receive mention on social media, our webpage, and within the care packages themselves. We also welcome the addition of a small flyer/coupon from your place of business, upon approval. Purchase your 2017 sponsorship on our website.
CRAFTERS! We would love to provide gifts to the parents/caregivers during Christmas week. Please let us know if you or your group would like to donate your work!
This past week we wrapped up our 2nd Annual Holiday Care Package Project with a Christmas Eve delivery to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, MI, and a Christmas Eve Eve toiletry delivery to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, MI!
This year we were able to provide another 440 food care packages, 150 toiletry packages, and additional food items to Michigan children’s hospitals. We are so very humbled by the generous support this project has received again this year! We are also very grateful for our friends at Michigan State University and the Upward Bound program for helping us pack all of our holiday bags!
THANK YOU to those of you that donated to, spread the word about, or prayed for our foundation and our care package projects! We look forward to partnering with you again in 2017!
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.
Thank you for helping us support the families of children with illnesses!
We are excited to announce the launch of our 2016 Holiday Care Package Project!
Our 2015 Project was a huge success, and we are excited for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of families this holiday season as well!
We are looking for sponsors for 11 days of care packages ($100 for a full sponsorship, or $50 for a half sponsorship). We are also looking for crafters to make and donate small gifts for the caregivers to help make the holidays more comfortable for them.
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!
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!
