How You Can Help

Wherever there is a human in need, there is an opportunity for
kindness and to make a difference. - Kevin Heath

Your donation will help families traveling the heartbreaking road of baby loss. While nothing can heal their hearts, we hope that these memory boxes offer them support and comfort through their grief. The list below includes a variety of items that we include in the memory boxes. The goal is to eventually donate three different types of boxes:
  • Miscarriage Box for 1st trimester babies
  • Late Miscarriage Box for 2nd trimester babies
  • Stillbirth Box (babies who are 20+ weeks gestation)
We have a Wish List set up at There is a link to the left. We also have a PayPal button to the left, should you want to contribute financially. All financial donations will be used to purchase items listed below. (Just so you know... the PayPal account is set-up under my old business name, Weddings by Crystal. PayPal won't change it without downgrading to a personal account.) Let us know if you would like your financial contribution to be used for purchasing a specific item. Please let us know if there is a particular wording preference you would like listed on the thank you page. (For example, if you would like to remain anonymous or if you would like to make a donation in memory of an angel.)

~ What We Need ~

(Links are included within the text below to help give you ideas of what it is and/or where to buy. If you discover a link is no longer working, please let me know. If you find a place that sells these items cheaper or locally, let us know. If you think of anything else that should be added to the list, let us know.) You can contact us, using the envelope button, in the column to the left. Feel free to browse through the album on the Picture page to see some of the items listed below. *Any item that has a line through it, means that that item has already been purchased for the next donation.*

  • Disposable cameras
  • Monetary donations to purchase boxes, have business cards and brochures printed, etc
  • Our new boxes will be purchased in bulk, with a charity discount agreement - 20 boxes are $100.00
  • Crafty people to help us make cards (scrapbook style - we need someone to help print/cut/assemble)
  • Baby size teddy bears - We include two identical bears in each box. One for parents to keep and one to bury or cremate with baby... because every child should have a toy. (The ones sold on this site are a perfect size for the 1st and 2nd trimester boxes, as they don't overpower the tiny babies. This one is great for the stillbirth boxes: 5 1/2" bear or a 9" bear for full term babies)
  • Candle holders (Let us know if you would be interested in making these. We've estimated the cost to be around $30 for the materials to make 10-12 of them.)

  • Small clay molds for hand or footprints (Like these)
  • Baby loss cards - These are perfect.

  • Still by Stephanie Cole is available online through The Sweet Pea Project 
  • When Hello Means Goodbye (Spanish version is requested since Empty Cradle, Broken Heart isn't available in a Spanish format) It can be ordered here or we can purchased these in bulk with a charity discount agreement.

Please email us if you would like to have our pattern information for outfits, pouches and blankets. We have sewing, knitting and crocheting patterns, as well as, size charts to assist in knowing how big/small to make certain items.)
