Comfort for Connecticut

| |

Project Sweet Peas is embarking on a new project, bringing comfort to the child victims families from the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Our Bereavement Division, Forever My Sweet Pea, will be putting together 20 Memory Bags that will contain treasured keepsake items. The Memory Bags will be similar in nature to the memory boxes that are provided to families enduring a pregnancy and infant loss.

We are looking for crafters, vendors or companies that are interested in donating items that can be used in remembrance of their child. Some businesses have donated angel figurines, personalized candles, and angel bears to name a few.

We are also in need of monetary donations to help buy items to add in the packages, shipping and the bags themselves. The total we need to raise for those is: $500

We will be compiling a list of donors that will be listed in a letter that will be given to each family. If you wish to remain anonymous, please clarify that upon donating.

The projected completion date is 1/14/2013. We will be working with a Newtown organization to distribute these packages directly to the families.

If you are interested in donating, monetary or in kind, please contact Project Sweet Peas President, Kate Crawford at: with the subject line "Comfort for Connecticut".

Project Sweet Peas will not be accepting donations for this project past our goal needed.  We would also like to make it clear that we are not collecting monies for the families, we are simply taking our mission and out reaching to these families whose children were taken too soon.
