The First Delivery Has Happened!

We are so excited to share that on Friday, August 12th, 2022 we made our very first family support pack delivery to The University of South Alabama Children's and Women's Hospital in Mobile. We donated 100 parent packs and 50 sibling packs to help NICU families feel seen and supported during their hospital stay. This was the first donation of many, and you can read all about it in our blog. Thank you to all that made this happen!

May is NEC Awareness Month!

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating intestinal infection that disproportionately affects premature infants. May is NEC Awareness Month, with May 17th being NEC Awareness Day. Sadie's Purpose works to bring awareness to NEC. Please visit NEC Society's website to learn more about NEC, and make sure you're following the Sadie's Purpose LinkedIn page for posts raising NEC awareness.

Partnership with Give A Mile

In May of 2022, Sadie's Purpose partnered with an amazing foundation called Give A Mile. Give A Mile works with families of terminally ill or critically ill/injured patients to make sure everyone gets a proper goodbye.

By using donated airline miles or monetary resources, they will help fly family members to the bedside of these patients. Because everyone deserves the gift of a proper goodbye. If you need this service, please reach out to me and I can help connect you with the right people.

Summer 2021 Fundraiser

In June of 2021, we had our first-ever fundraiser, hosted

in collaboration with Amy Olseth, RN of Holistic Interventionist, and Daryn Rowley of Daryn Rowley Design. It was lots of fun and a big success, laying

the groundwork for Sadie's Purpose to get off to a roaring

and successful start!
