2015 Olivet Fireman’s Festival

The Princess Alli Foundation had an amazing time at the 2015 Olivet Fireman’s Festival! Our goal for participating in this year’s festival was to raise awareness of our mission to support the families of children with illnesses in memory of Allison Ruth Russcher.  We were able to do so much more than that! We are excited to announce that the generous people of Olivet helped us raise enough money to sponsor another day for our Holiday Care Package Campaign!  We are ecstatic to be one day closer to our goal of providing ELEVEN DAYS of extra-special holiday care packages to the families with inpatient children over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays! THANK YOU […]

Progress! The First Two Months

The Princess Alli Foundation has made great progress in the first two months since it was formed!  Here’s an recap of what we’ve been up to: On May 26, 2015 our Articles of Incorporation were accepted and filed by the State of Michigan, making the Princess Alli Foundation a registered nonprofit corporation. In June we held our first official Board Meeting as a corporation and adopted our Bylaws and put our operational procedures in place.  This was a HUGE step towards our 501(c)(3) public charity classification. We’ve spent countless hours DREAMING BIG – there are so many things we want to do to help the families of children with illnesses in […]

Supporting Families: The First Two Weeks

It’s been two weeks since the Princess Alli Foundation began supporting families at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, MI.  What an amazing experience these first two weeks have been! On May 6 we delivered our first 40 care packages.  Our RNICU families received water bottles, granola bars, peanuts, a pack of gum, and gel window clings to decorate the cribs and isolettes.  We also provided a basket full of toiletries for the moms that spend their days in the unit with their newborns. PEDS and PICU families received granola bars, peanuts and gum in their bags.  Why the difference?  PEDS and PICU families have access to “pantries” that Sparrow Hospital generously stocks for them.  These […]
