**I would like to update you on our efforts going forward. Due to unforeseen medical complications for not only my family, but also other members of our core volunteers, we need to change our gifts for the Mom's this year. Many of our volunteers are comprised of families who have children with medical needs, which is why they want to help each year. We often have Mom's who were gifted one year and want to pay it forward, which is a true blessing. This was not an easy decision for us, but we were thoughtful and still want to give to the incredible Mom's at Children's Colorado, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children and Poudre Valley Hospital. We need: $5000 to hopefully provide

*Brunch at each hospital (Children's Hospital Colorado is confirmed for this at $3000)  We desperately need donations toward this effort!

*Handmade blankets and coffee cozies (We still need your help!!)

*Girl scout cookies (provided solely by our Hometown Heroes troop in Parker) All boxes have been donated for each hospital, thanks to our generous Girl Scout Troop and our supporters!

If you feel led, please donate monetarily or send a handmade blanket or coffee cozy before April 24th, 2018. If there are any companies or organizations who would like to sponsor us, we may then be able to give out gift cards for coffee, coffee tumblers, toiletry bags and more. This would take quite a bit of the fundraising workload off of us. 
We would gladly recognize these sponsors on our page and in our print work! And with enthusiastic hugs!

Thank you in advance for your understanding and support for the last 4 years. We hope to come back next year and do what we always have to bring joy to Mother's of hospitalized children on Mother's Day. And maybe we will do something extra special for our 5th year! 

Thank you,
Sarah**

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. They are unable to attend celebratory brunches, family outings, go shopping, and more that comes with this special day. And honestly, Moms are very devoted to their children and often wouldn't leave given the chance!  So, I decided to bring Mothers Day to them!

The first three years of this event have been successful, meaningful and fun!  The volunteers that have joined this project are phenomenal!  They give whole-heartedly and enjoy this day.  The Mother's who receive gifts also tend to stay in touch. 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 24th, 2018 for hospital washing)
  • Handmade or purchased lap-size blankets, with Mama-friendly designs and colors.
  • ESSIE or OPI nail polish
  • Microwaveable, sectioned plates with vented lids
  • Modern day novels
  • Reusable coffee tumblers (Starbucks hopeful at $2/ea)
  • $10 gift cards which vary on hospital location. Include Starbucks & Dazbog Coffee ( must receive funds and NO gift card donations due to each store being privately owned) Einstein Bagels, Culver’s and more.
  • UCHealth/PVH Coffee Shop Gift Cards
  • Woman-on-the-go kits (Include toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, hairbrush)
  • New! Brunch for Mom's at Children's Hospital

Total Donations Needed: $10,897

Minus donations saved from last year  = $8594.95

We are also accepting small gifts that we hope to cumulatively add to our goal of 175 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 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!
