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
-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.
