Winner of Sappi Ideas that Matter grant.
5000 families served in 100 cities worldwide.
For families who have lost a baby, we developed a grant proposal to create the Special Delivery campaign—a children’s book, annual book drop, website, and social community. The free book/eBook set in motion a public dialog and the healing process for the 25,000+ families worldwide who grieve an infant death each year. A photo may be inserted into the frame on the back cover, making the book a self-standing picture frame and personalized memorial keepsake as well. In addition to taking online book requests, the website offers a space to memorialize, discuss, find resources, and even make small gestures of participation like sending virtual love. Proud partners include Kaiser Permanente, UCLA Medical Center and Lucille Packard Children’’s Hospital.
“A few days ago we received our books. One stays with me and my family and the others are being forwarded to other babyloss families we work with. My daughter LOVES the book. She took it to kindergarten and slept with it in her bed for a few nights. Thank you so much for what you do. It is needed.
—YP, mother/pediatrician/founder of Poppes for Mary Foundation
“I read your book to my 2-year-old daily. I have a 5-month-old I will read it too as well. I tear up every time I read the last page. Thank you so much for it.” —NZA, mother
“I really think the book you’ve created is the best I have seen so far and could easily be used to help a sibling understand what happened and where their brother/sister is now. Thank you for creating something like this!!” —RC, mother/HEART, Helping Empty Arms Recover Together
“I’m in tears as I read your book. It’s amazing that they can still come so easily. I love this…I do talk about our daughter all the time to her living sisters. There haven’t really been many questions yet but I think they will come soon as our oldest is just over 3 years now. This would be such a great way to talk to her about her sister.” —EF, mother
