|Donation from Blankie Depot of Keyport, New Jersey 8/4/14|
Through the course of four and half years, CWL has sent hundreds of Breathe Easy Care Packages all through out the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Ireland, England, Finland and the Isle of Man- to name a few. EVERY care package has been given at no cost to the receiving family- thanks to our amazing donors! Each care package contains a handmade blanket, handmade hat, Lu The Laryngmalacia Lamb, Socks 4 Surgery socks and a Mary Kay pampering bag (for the Supermom). Care packages are sent to families whose Pint-Sized Powerhouses' are scheduled to have airway surgery (a supraglottoplasty), comprehensive sleep study, tracheotomy tube surgery, scope in the OR and/or prolonged hospitalization due to complications of an airway defect. These care packages are more than just a Get Well Gift. They are full of Hope. Full of comfort. Full of love. They are a constant reminder, you are not alone.
Still...after four years and over 300 donations, I get choked up looking at all the talent, time and pure love that goes into making these blankets and hats.
Do our donors actually know how appreciated their work is?
Do they know where their donations go?
Do they know who their donations help?
I would like to introduce some our Pint-Sized Powerhouses' that YOU have helped.....

A donation is never "just a donation." It's never "not enough."
It always has the potential to change a life.
So THANK YOU donors...thank you for always believing in our mission, supporting our work and providing our amazing Pint-Sized Powerhouses' (and their families)
with Hope, love and a hug!
