Thank You Jimena Dolzadelli!

We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU out to 

Jimena Dolzadelli of Burlington, CT

For sending us the following wonderful donation.

Jimena was kind enough to create 17 spanish language lullabye CD's for the NICU infants at CCMC. 

She designed the covers of the CD's to read:

Doing Good in Her Name
Honoring the memory of
Peyton Elizabeth Binder

         Please accept this music CD especially recorded with Spanish songs for infants and toddlers.
Por favor acepte este disco de música especialmente grabado con canciones en Español para bebes y niños.

Jimena then labeled each CD, and wrapped them individually for CCMC's critically ill infants in plastic to keep them sterile for distribution.

Just look at all these CD's!

Thank You Malory of Every Life Has A Story!

We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU out to

Malory Jiminez of Every Life Has A Story

for sending us the following amazing donations!

Malory, who already does so much to help others, by providing video tributes at her site for families who have lost their babies, sent us an amazing box which was just overflowing with beautiful goodies for the critically ill infants at CCMC.

There were outfits galore...

With fabulous accessories... look at these headbands!

Cute clothes for boys and girls... 
Just look at that little sundress...

Great Disney apparel...

Ha! Skull and Crossbones with guitars...

This one was just too cute!

Can you believe this all fit in one box!

This will certainly brighten someone's day...

Check out these great sleep sacks...

And all these goodies too... toys, blankets, crib sheets, and pacifiers!

All of these wonderful items will go to such great use at CCMC. They were dropped off last week with our second drive, having arrived just hours before our drop off, and I am certain that many of them have already found homes.

6 Months...

It's hard to believe that we are already approaching the six month anniversary of this initiative! It seems like just yesterday that we looked at each other and said, "Let's do something, in Peyton's name. Something that brings some good out of all this pain." It was a conversation that has forever changed us.

When we spoke those words, we never could have imagined that so many people, from all over the world, would come together to help us honor our beautiful little Peyton, by donating to the cause of helping to make hospital life a little better for other critically ill infants and their families. The outpouring of items, financial donations, and hand made gifts, has been awe inspiring.

We are gearing up for another large drop off over the next week or so, and have two more batches of donations to post here coming in the next few days.

Thank you to all who have helped this initiative through donations, prayer, and spreading the word. At last count, the facebook group had over 450 fans, and we look forward to watching the awareness of this initiative grow.

Many Thanks,
Peyton's Parents

Andrew & Kristin Binder
