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.

 Note. I removed the diapers from this size since they hospital told me they had a supply of diapers from another organization.

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.

These kits are incredible and so greatly appreciated. As an L&D nurse at Stony Brook I have cared for many patients excperiencing fetal loss and have witnessed first hand the importance of the care packets in helping to preserve the memories of their child. Your generosity does not go unnoticed and the impact you make is very real.
