MJ's Memories Delivers in Memory of MJ's Angel Day

| |
Project Sweet Peas is so happy to share about another delivery made by local project MJ's Memories!

Megan, project leader, made the special delivery on Labor Day with her husband and MJ's twin brother Will to Children's Mercy Hospital in Missouri (this hospital is where MJ lived and passed away). The delivery was made in memory of MJ's "Angel Day." MJ lived from July 25, 2009 - August 29, 2009. To read more about his story and their local project click here.

Their delivery included 18 basic NICU bags (the hospital was only in need of 18 since they had bags left over from the last delivery by MJ's Memories). They also did a special delivery of 35 Angel/memory boxes, one for each day MJ lived.

Here is a picture of some of the bags and boxes that were delivered:

Megan said, "The delivery went great, and we were so happy to be able to donate those items for MJ's Angel Day. It was hard walking back in there, as it always is, but we are very thankful to be able to do this."

About 6 weeks ago, Megan brought in two example memory boxes to the hospital to make sure that everything in them was going to be okay to donate. When she returned she was told that they had given out both memory boxes in the past six weeks. One of the chaplains who gave one of them out told Megan that the family was so thankful to have it, and they started using everything in it right away!

Stories like this make everything we do that much more special.
