A Beautiful Article...

For anyone who is interested, here is a link to the beautiful article that Jack Coraggio of The Litchfield County Times, wrote about Doing Good In Her Name.

Thank You Jill Lucas!

We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU out to

A wonderful article about all the hard work that the fifth graders at Stadley Rough Elementary School put into their drive for Doing Good In Her Name this past Spring has appeared in a Brian Koonz article in today's Danbury News Times.

Below is a copy of the post that shows the amazing donations collected by these generous children. Thank you again to Lauren Gillespie and all the families and faculty of Stadley Rough.


We Would Like to Send Out 


The Families and Faculty

of Stadley Rough School,

Danbury Connecticut.

Lauren Gillespie, a counselor at the school, contacted me in January to let me know that the students at Stadley Rough had decided to do an item donation and fundraiser for Doing Good In Her Name, so that they could help the little babies being treated at CCMC. The donations came in last week, and what these elementary school students collected absolutely blew us away!

They collected bottles and bottle washers!

Plenty of pacifiers, teethers, and toys!

Books, CD's, crib sheets, some corner and outlet protectors...

Adorable outfits like this one (sorry for the sideways picture)

A wonderful batch of homemade fleece blankets... (washed and bagged)

As well as store bought blankets, a duckie bath wrap, and some socks...

And then there were the clothes.... just check out all of these beautiful items!

These ones with matching bibs were so adorable, and look at those little animal feet...

And this adorable bear outfit...

Complete with a detachable velcro tail!

In addition to the items collected, Stadley Rough's Families and Faculty donated $115 in checks, bringing our total raised to $925! Unbelievable. This money will go so far in assisting the families of the critically ill infants being treated at CCMC, by providing food and parking vouchers, as well as financial assistance.

We Also Want To Send Out
A Very Special THANK YOU
To Some Very Special Students!


Hayley, Karla, Kaitlyn,

Ariana, Benardina,

Anusha, Cameron and Allie!

These students not only helped lead the charge in collecting donations, and getting the items together, but also took the time to create and send these beautiful handmade cards to us...

With messages inside like this beautiful poem...

These cards really touched our hearts, and we are so grateful to these students for working so hard to make this drive for Doing Good In Her Name such a huge success!

Sorry for the short hiatus...

We do indeed have some amazing new donations to post here! Unfortunately, I had come down with a lingering chest cold, and being that the items for the critically ill infants at CCMC have to be handled in as sterile a manner as possible, opted not to handle any donations until I was feeling better, which I am!

We will start posting donations again tomorrow!

Thanks again for your continued patience!
