Wonderful Volunteers!

Look at the wonderful help we've had from Oak Ridge Girl Scout Junior troop 40326.  These girls tackled absolutely everything we sent for them to help us with and came back asking for more!!  Thank you so much, ladies!!  They cut, flipped, pinned, tagged, and did all sorts of wonderful work for us.

Care Bags for Greensboro

As a high risk facility, Women's Hospital serves more than 300 families who are facing pregnancy/infant loss each year. We are doing our best to place something uplifting into the hands of each one. We are also working on networking with medical offices in the area who serve women experiencing a pregnancy loss outside of the hospital. All of the care bags we provided to Women's Hospital have been used...and we are working hard to send them more. So far, we've only been able to put together 28 bags; based on those statistics...those will be gone in <1 month. We need:
-travel size lotion
-chapstick
-charms (i.e. teddy bears, butterflies, "hope", hearts, etc.)
-personal tissue packs
-monetary donations to order a new item we are creating for parents...including Dads!! (Please click on the paypal link on the right hand side if you can make a financial contribution. We also have a mailing address to receive checks.)

Our organization is run 100% by volunteers who are in no way financially reimbursed for their time/efforts. Once we obtain more materials, we could also use some help putting bags together. 


Thanks!!!

The Cleansing Power of Raindrops



 I liked the lyrics of this song:
"Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops?
What if your healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near?"

Aren't raindrops amazing? They can wash away filth, grime, and allow things to grow. Collectively, they can cause a flood. That's become our mission...to sprinkle others with h.o.p.e. As more people come together and break the silence of grief...a flood of h.o.p.e. begins to speak to others. I've never feared rain, myself. I love the sound of it on my roof. I remember a moment I shared with my husband over a decade ago in the rain....at first we ran, then we stopped and just let it wash over us. After we lost our son, the smell, feeling, and sound of rain cleansed my negative feelings and gave me hope. The next time it rains, I invite you to step outside and let it wash over your body, cleansing away the grime of whatever you might be feeling...and let it help you to grow.

What gives you hope?  Please comment to share!
