I am inspired...

After Noah's recent hospital stay for Pneumonia, I became inspired. Our hospital, while truly wonderful, is a smaller hospital. After sitting in a hospital room with 3 healthy kids and one sick baby I realized that I wanted to do something to help the children who are admited. Something to help them feel more comfortable and to make their stay a little less scary.

It is my goal to start a non profit, this year, that will provide small plastic tote boxes of age appropiate toys, coloring books/crayons and a blanket to children who are admited to the hospital. Eventually, this will expand to include children visiting the ER. The children will be able to take their boxes home with them upon discharge as well. I also want to provide children who are visiting family members in the hospital with a box as I know how antsy young children can get.

My mission statement is simple: "Our goal is to provide boxes of age appropiate toys, coloring books and crayons and a blanket to each child that is admited to the hospital. We want to provide a sense of comfort in what otherwise can be a very scary experience."

These boxes will be made for all ages starting at 4months on up.

We will rely on donations of funds and products for our project.

Please email me for more information at to see how you can help!

For now, we will be focusing within the state of IL and WI. We hope to expand nationally within the next 12 months.
