2018 Gift Give
Tis the season for giving and we at Christian’s Purpose want to remember the families of the children undergoing treatment in UVA’s NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit). While other organizations are gifting to the children themselves, we would like to provide hope for the families and parents of these special angels. It’s easy to overlook the parents themselves when thinking of the special children involved in these situations. We sometimes fail to realize the intense struggle these parents endure, watching, waiting, worrying and praying for their children. The holiday’s can be hard especially when you want nothing more than to have your children home and healthy for the holidays. In 95% of these situations parents struggle with costs associated with care, travel, food and boarding all while losing time from work and family. We want to make sure these families are not forgotten. This year Christian’s Purpose will be providing gift bags with the help of donor sponsorship. With a small sponsorship donation, together we can provide light in a dark situation. A sense of hope through desperation, and a little inspiration that can go a very long way. With a small donation of $25 or whatever can be afforded a sponsor can provide the following…… To find out more Click Here

Cristian’s Purpose You Caring NICU Fundraiser
Christian’s Purpose is hosting a community fundraiser to raise money for casting mold kits that will be used in the neonatal unit at UVA Children’s Hospital in the event that a newborn tragically passes away. As parents of a butterfly baby ourselves we know first hand how important these mementos can be to a grieving parent. It’s a tragedy when a parent is unable to take their child home and watch them grow through the years. These casting molds provide parents with a lasting memory that will not only aid through the bereavement process but provides the parents an actual mold of their child’s hand and foot that can be cherished forever. This is especially important and in my opinion the most important item a parent can have to memorialize their child’s memory. Unfortunately the NICU’s budget does not allow for the purchase of these kits and the nurses themselves have been providing them when and if they can. With an inside source to the NICU on our board of directors we know how frustrating this can be for the nurses and staff. They want nothing more than to provide these keepsakes and help grieving parents the best way they can, by providing these mementos. The issues also arise where some nurses do not have the initial practice to use these kits and fear that they will not be able to use them correctly given the lack of experience and supply. We are looking to not only provide a supply of these kits for continuous availability but will also personally hold practice sessions for these angel nurses in order to ensure that EVERY tragic situation is met with the compassionate supply of these lasting keepsakes. Christian’s Purpose has collaborated with a supplier in order to acquire these kits at a very reasonable bulk purchase price and looks forward to the opportunity to supply the NICU@UVA Children’s Hospital with a constant supply of these especially important mementos. We are asking for your support to help supply grieving parents with a very important and cherished keepsake in these very tragic and overwhelming situations. We hope to reach our goal in order to present the NICU@UVA Children’s Hospital with these kits at a public ceremony held March 31st 2018 at our 1st Annual Spring Kickoff Event, hosted by The Oakland School and sponsored by SuperFun.LOL as well as many great local businesses. With your support this goal is a very reasonable and obtainable possibility. Every donation is equally important and appreciated whether it be $1 or $50, together we can reach our goal and make a lasting difference. Please don’t forget to like our Facebook page and sign up for our monthly newsletter to keep up on future events as well as the great work provided to the community through Christian’s Purpose and our great sponsors. No parent should ever lose a child but together we can bring Hope Thru Desperation!
