Jan 2009 Article -When we had regional giving

Region 7 Update

Greetings from Florida!

Happy, healthy, and prosperous new year to everyone!

Now that the holiday rush is over, hopefully we can get back to crafting for HAIN. There are several still unmet needs in our region. Florida Hospital Orlando (not Altamonte Springs), Holmes Regional, Wuesthoff Medical Center and Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center need memory boxes. Some of these hospitals have never received a memory box from us! For the neonatal division, we have Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, Florida Hospital (both Orlando and Altamonte Springs), Holmes Regional, Wuesthoff Medical Center and Dekalb Medical Center. And some of these have never received any burial garments from us. We also have three photographers in our region who could use items.

I know today’s economy has forced a lot of people to cut back on their charitable giving. If everyone would just make a few things per month, we could easily meet all these needs. One skein of yarn can make a couple of burial sets. One yard of flannel can make several wraps. It only costs a few dollars, your time, and your love. Even if you can only give one or two items, you are doing something to make a difference in the world. The nurses I have talked to say that most of the angels they see are from the poorest families— families without resources. Your donations give grieving parents one less thing to worry about during their time of suffering, and give the families and their babies dignity.
