One of our biggest projects has been Teeny Tears diapers.  So far, our team of volunteers have made close to 2000 of these tiny treasures and distributed them to hospitals in NC and a couple of sister organizations in Texas.  We've also been blessed to donate tiny blankets with many of our sets (These diapers serve infants who have passed away in utero and/or in the NICU and size all the way down to 18 weeks gestation).  We had a whole lot of help from volunteers helping with the creative process, as well as fabric/sewing material donations from the community.  We also received help/support from local businesses before we even had a name!  Some businesses donated time, some made monetary and/or fabric contributions, and others donated work space.

We print business logos on our local handouts to show our appreciation for supporting businesses.  We also provide memorial donation cards for those who'd like to remember a child.  If a volunteer/donor has a child they'd like to dedicate their work/donation to, we add them to our Angel Page
