Day Eleven of 30 Days of Project Sweet Peas Giveaway! And Some Other Stuff!

As I have written about so many times before, one of the things that I do to remember and honor my son is donate care packages to families that have a baby in the NICU. I am able to do this through the help and support of Project Sweet Peas, which is a group of families just like mine, who have been in the NICU and know how hard it is. There are twelve local project spread out across the country that deliver these care packages. I am honored to be a part of this organization. And we need your help!!!

We have applied for a grant through the Pepsi Refresh Project, and have been selected as a finalist to win a $25,000 grant!! So here is how you can help us: vote once a day, every day for Project Sweet Peas to win. We need to be in the top ten at the end of the month to win. And to entice you to help us out and vote every day, I am doing a 30 Days of Project Sweet Peas giveaway! Everyday in the month of April I will be writing about the amazing things going on in Project Sweet Peas. And if you leave a comment that you voted each day, I will randomly pick one of these comments to win an Awareness Braceletof your choice! I make awareness bracelets of all colors, and I have a Pregnancy and Infant Loss Charm Bracelet featured right now.

**Please note that you must leave a comment each day to qualify for the giveaway for that day. **

Welcome to Day Eleven of 30 Days of Project Sweet Peas! We are keeping strong at 16 and I am so happy! Thank you all so much for voting! Today we will take a break from highlighting the other projects involved in Project Sweet Peas because we have been working on getting some more bags out to hospitals. Yay!

Our goal is to get twenty bags out by Friday. They will all go to Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka, KS. We are very excited about this because we have donated 20 previous bags to them and they are out! So now we will be able replenish them and make sure that every family that needs one, will get one. 

We are hoping to then donate another 30 bags by the end of the month to Children's Mercy Hospital. And then we will be doing something VERY special on our next donation, which will be in August, but more on that to come later! Here  are some pics of us working on our bags :)

We have also started our garden for MJ today. We have been wanting to do this for a long time, but have not been able to do so because of the weather. Well the weather has finally been nice and so we were able to! Here are a few pictures of what we have done for MJ.
