Yesterday we had the honor and privilege to donate 300 lovey blankets from Baby Jack and Co. to McLane Children’s PICU. What we thought was going to be a small gesture of love and thanks to the hospital for everything they had done for Addie, turned out to be a HUGE deal for our hospital.
As many of you know, for Addie’s birthday we asked you all to help us with a kindness project with our friends Baby Jack and Co. We wanted people to celebrate Addie’s 1st birthday with something that could benefit others because we have been so blessed during our time in the NICU and PICU. We set out a goal of 100 loveys and immediately surpassed it. The day of our campaign coming to an end we were dangerously close to 200 loveys. I rallied on Facebook and asked our awesome readers if everyone could help us reach 200 by the end of the day. Within the hour Baby Jack and Co. was innundated with orders for loveys and we ended up getting close to 300 loveys. Out of the goodness of their hearts, Baby Jack and Co. donated the remaining loveys, getting us to 300 lovey blankets.
I was so floored that little ‘ole me could use the power of social media for something so good. I always knew God had amazing things in store for Addie and her life, but I never thought I would be a part of that process. I’m so excited to be able to give back to our local hospital for something as good as this and it’s all because of you guys. Also, a HUGE thanks to KWTX for running our story. We had a great time with Marlena on Tuesday and Trovette yesterday!
