Hailey’s Hope:1 Week Left!

May 25, 2010 at 3:35 PM 1 comment

One week from today is June 1st, which is our deadline for Hailey’s Hope’s first set of gift bag donations to the NCIUs at The Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, AL.

I am so excited to share this latest update with you all!

Since my last update we have received several more monetary donations including donations from family members, friends, OCF members, teachers at the grade school I attended where my mom works as a teacher, and from one of my best friends and her family.

I am pleased and confident to announce that with 1 week left, we will be able to meet our goal of 20 bags! Thank you so much to everyone who has prayed for us, supported us, and donated to our project. Thanks to you, we are going to be able to touch the lives of over 20 families who have babies in NICUs. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

This is where we stand as of today with 1 week left:

  • Total mount of money raised: $1,729.00!!
  • Total number of individual items donated: 81!!
  • Total number of bags filled and completed: 3
  • Estimated amount of bags to be filled with donation money: Over 16!

If you do the math you will see that we will be able to donate at least 20 bags! And I’m hoping to be very thrifty with the money donated by purchasing in bulk, shopping around for deals online and deals in stores, and even hitting up the dollar stores I will stretch every dollar while still keeping the brand new items in the bags classy and beautiful. So by being smart with the money that has been so generously given to Hailey’s Hope, I hope to bring more than 20 bags to the NICUs!

Now, if you still haven’t given to Hailey’s Hope and you would like to be a part of this first round of gift bags, you have 1 week left to get your donation to me. If you cannot make the June 1st deadline, please don’t let that keep you from giving – as I’ve said before – Hailey’s Hope is not just a one time thing, we will be continually giving gift bags to the NICUs throughout the rest of this year! More information to come on that later…

Thank you and blessings to you all!
