HAIN is humbled by the constant giving of our amazing volunteers. Though our country has been struggling financially our volunteers are faithful in helping families find comfort. We are so very proud of our volunteers and I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart!
H.A.I.N. needs many kinds of help. Please consider helping us touch one baby, one child, one family at a time.
. Neonatal Division: We need volunteers desperately! If you can Sew, Crochet, Knit we need your time, love in serving these little babies and children in need. We offer tons of free patterns and a list of places who have asked for our help, or we encourage you to give locally. We have labels you can print to put on the items you send out etc..
. Children's Division: If you can not craft you can buy items and give through our Children's Division. We offer care bags, its made up of a purchased (or handcrafted) bag, a toy and blanket. Put one of our labels on that and give to an Emergency Room, Fire Department or Police Station or Hospital in your area. This bag will be given to a child to give them comfort during trauma, house fire, car accident etc.. just a little love goes along way! Gives kids comfort and something they can hold on to during a difficult time.
. Financial Helps! Your financial help will go into a general fund to help cover website costs. Plus we send out yarns and materials to help our volunteers to be able to create handmade items for babies and children, or to purchase items for our care bags. H.A.I.N. has no paid members. We are 100% volunteer! So anything you give goes 100% to help babies and children. You can donate to us by clicking on the DONATE button the left side of our front page/Home page of our website.
. Memory Box Division: If you have an artistic side and would like to try making memory boxes, your help is desperately needed. Memory Boxes are some of our most requested items. These boxes are made with paper mache boxes you can purchase through any craft store. We have lots of ideas, resources and patterns you are welcome to use. These boxes are given to families in grief to keep their infants memorial items in. These boxes are treasured by percipient. Almost anyone can make these boxes. We have hospitals and individuals who have requested them in our members only (for their privacy) part of our forum. Sign up to be a HAIN volunteer to find this information.
. Our Casket Division is in Desperate need of volunteers. You can give in a powerful way if you have woodworking skills to donate locally or if an emergency need arises. Consider this as a way of reaching grieving families who shouldn't have to worry about the cost of burying their baby when their whole world was just ripped apart.
. Our Comfort Division needs loving volunteers who can offer bereavement support for families who just need prayers, comfort, love and support.
