CuddleCot Fundraiser

A few months back I shared about some special t-shirts that were created as a kick off for a project that Purposeful Gift chose to sponsor. The project is to raise funds to purchase and donate a CuddleCot to one of our local hospitals – Miami Valley Hospital.

Between our shirt fundraiser and one generous donation, I am happy to say we have raised about 1/3 of the funds needed to purchase a CuddleCot.

As the next phase to our fundraising efforts, we were able to partner with one of our local Chipotle Restaurants for a charity night (sadly this is local and specific to this ONE Chipotle restaurant). For those who are local, on January 11th from 6-9pm, if you go to the Chipotle on Brown Street and mention Purposeful Gift to the cashier, 50% of the money from your order will be donated to our cause! We are very excited about this event and hope it will be successful.

We are also planning a Basket Raffle (tentatively scheduled for February 6th – Location to be announced).   We have already started collecting items, and let me tell you, there will be some pretty awesome items. Most items will be for local pick up only, but I have a few items that we will offer in a small “online raffle”. Stay tuned for more information!!!

Although Purposeful Gift’s primary goal is to raise awareness for neonatal organ, eye, tissue, and whole body donation, as well as providing support for families and education for medical professionals, our board felt strongly about helping our local community. We felt providing this extremely needed item would be a wonderful way to support all loss families who deliver at our local hospital.

For questions or additional information about this special project feel free to contact me via e-mail. Our goal is to have enough funds to purchase the CuddleCot and donate it to Miami Valley Hospital by March 2016.
