I keep reading about how so many baby loss mommas are doing good in the name of their children. It makes my heart ache because I want to do something too. Franchesca, the woman who designed my blog and made Addie's memory box, is collecting blank journals. She blogged about it here and I'm going to send her some. But I feel like it's not enough. I've been wanting to find a way of donating something other than money to the hospital where she was born, to help other families like ours. I keep coming back to memory boxes. The one I got while at the hospital was great...but I think families might enjoy a little more. So, I'm calling out to all of my friends and family and my blog friends. Any ideas on would be helpful. I'm looking for a place to get hand or footprint kits, nice cardstock for the footprints, and any other suggestions. I still haven't found boxes the right size yet, but they are going to be hand decorated and all in different patterns. I do have some things I am pretty sure I want to include...like finding Certificates of Life that parents can have, maybe some candles, maybe talk to Carly from To Write Their Names in the Sand and see if she'll provide me with gift certificates for a sunset name pic and some others. I hope I can get this together. I would love to be able to do some good in her name.
Please consider helping out with Jenna's Journal Drive. Franchesca has come up with a wonderful idea and I would love to see her reach her goal! Just click on the link above or the button below for more information.
