Donation to Stony Brook - 144 kits

Stony Brook ... it is done :) 

This is always a huge donation for me. It's alot of time and energy every year, but I will send as long as they are willing to receive :) 

I did the kits a little differently... I am now packaging them in clear bags, so the nurses can see the outfits for color choices, etc. Each kit came with:
 Hat (or two in some cases), outfit, bear/plushie, art card, kleenex, vinyl decals, info card, brochure, puzzle piece, poem cards, bracelet, soap (for scent), bag, and blanket.

Many items were donated from individuals and organizations to make this happen! So much love went into these wonderful kits. 

Then lets now forget about the 83 kits that were sponsored by others sent off in memory of their own little one. 

All got neatly (or sort of neatly in some cases) into a clear plastic bag and sealed. 


Here's the break down:

11 - 15-18 weeks bunting kits

 4 - 15-18 weeks Sage's Swaddle kits

15 - 15-18 week Lay Me Down Wrap kits

Here are some photos up close of these:

29 - 18-23 week Lay Me Down Wrap kits

Want to see some of these out of their packaging? 
 Note. I removed the diapers from this size since they hospital told me they had a supply of diapers from another organization.

27 - 20-24 week kits

Some examples:

18 - 24-30 week Lay Me Down Wrap Kits

 Lets see some up close!

20 - 28-32 week kits

Aren't they cute:

10 -  36+ week kits
Note they all passed the kitten inspection for quality control :)

Kits are packed up waiting to be shipped off. This will be a two box mailing. 
 Each weighs probably over 40lbs. 

144 kits DONE! This is always a big one, but we manage to pull it off each and every year! I can't do it with out all of you!! So those who have sent in ANYTHING please pat yourself on the back for me ! Love to you all!


Help! Sponsor a Kit for Stony Brook!

Here is a unique opportunity!

I would love to see EVERY kit I send to Stony Brook containing the following card with a special name on them...

That is 140 kits that need sponsoring!

So I'm asking for only $1 to help make this happen. $1 for each kit you would like to sponsor. You can indeed buy more than one!

How do you do sponsor a kit? Right here... right now!

The $1 will help pay for shipping on the $140 kits along with the cost of packaging supplies :)

Donation from Beth!

Since I often make the items myself too I totally understand the time that does into each stitch and the love you need to do something like this. Opening up a donation box always humbles me...that a person out there choose this program to help. I truly appreciate every stitch!

Thank you Beth for another box of just loveliness!
