April Update

 I realize that communication has been very limited on here and I apologize. It seems to be so much faster to post on Facebook, when I'm already on there, sometimes.

First off, thank you to everyone who helped with the flower fundraiser!!! We were able to earn $92.00! I hope that you are pleased with your flowers. Feel free to email some pictures, for us to share, as you plant or as they begin to bloom!! Be sure to let me know whether you think this is something we should do again next year. As always, we are looking for interesting fundraising ideas. If you think of or know of something... share it with us!! (Just keep in mind, that we are not a 501/Non-profit organization.)

I wanted to offer a short update and let you know that we're still here and still committed to giving back to the bereaved community. I checked in with our "box company" today and it looks like their April launch, here in the US, has been delayed until May. :-( I did get more information as to the sizes and colors that will be offered. There aren't as many choices as their UK line but it still looks like the ones offered will fit our needs.

Oh, well... I'm not sure that we're going to be able to cut through the red tape at my first choice hospital so I may need the extra time to start communication with other hospitals. They seemed to be more concerned about the cost of certain items in the proto-box that we took to show them. I just keep getting the feeling that they don't want any "outside" help... but that they are interested in specific items so they can purchase things themselves. A little bummed but not letting this stop me... someone, somewhere can use these memory boxes!

Thank you all for your continued support!!!

The flowers aren't blooming yet, of course, but my strawberries are already growing nicely. I'll try to get some pictures this weekend. :-)
