Hi my name is Sarah and I am the director of Celebrating Supermoms!

I started this special cause a few years ago after I had endured multiple hospital stays, including a few on Mother's Day, with my daughter who has acute medical needs. I was inspired to give to Mom's on this special weekend because I know that they can feel forgotten and often are unable to leave their children - for the celebratory brunches, family outings, shopping, etc that comes with this special day. (Though so many of them are very devoted and wouldn't leave given the chance!)  So, I decided to come to them with intention to spoil them!

The first two years of this event have been successful, meaningful and fun!  The volunteers that have joined me in this project are phenomenal!  They give whole-heartedly and enjoy this day.  The Mother's who receive gifts also tend to stay in touch, and you will be able to hear some of their touching stories throughout our campaign.

We give:

  • A special tote to carry additional gifts, and one that can be used for future hospital stays
  • A coffee cozy, handmade or purchased (must receive by April 20th, 2018 for hospital washing)
  • Handmade or purchased lap-size blankets, with Mama-friendly designs and colors (Also must be received by April 20th)
  • ESSIE or OPI nail polish
  • Microwaveable, sectioned plates with vented lids
  • Modern day novels **Very gently used books can be mailed to us - and must be relative and readable!**
  • Reusable coffee tumblers 
  • Universal phone charging cords
  • $10 gift cards which vary on hospital location. Include Starbucks, Dazbog Coffee, Einstein Bagels or nearby coffee places (must receive funds and NO gift card donations due to each store being privately owned).
  • Woman-on-the-go kits (Include toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, hairbrush
  • NEW THIS YEAR AT CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL COLORADO: A Special Brunch provided by the hospital however, funds are needed to make this happen!  (Cost for this alone is $3000.00 so please let us know if you want your donation to go solely to this portion of the event at Children's.  We will let you know if additional hospitals are added for this!)

Total Donations Needed: $10,900

Minus donations saved from last year = $9,500

We are also accepting small gifts that we hope to cumulatively add to our goal of 200 Mom’s. We will be reaching out to Blue Apron, ThredUp, Stitch Fix, Lenny and Eva and more, with requests to contribute to Celebrating Supermoms with gift cards. We would like the Mom’s to be able to shop these items for free at a special table.   If you are a retailer, or have a contact to someone who could help us in this way with their goods, we would be grateful!

My team and I would love your help, with your donations and/or your time! Please contact us if you would like to help additionally to Celebrating Supermoms!  Thank you!
