Summer 2021 Fundraiser
Our first fundraiser after our incorporation, our summer 2021 fundraiser was a huge success! We sold Sadie's Purpose tee shirts and tote bags and raised just over $1000 to help cover some startup costs.
In November we held our first annual holiday fundraiser. Many generous donors offered up their services or goods for an auction. A huge success, we raised more than $1500 to go towards filling our support packs!
Partnership With See Me Grow Mat
In February, Sadie's Purpose partnered with See Me Grow Mat, a wonderful company that makes growth charts for babies. Their innovative products are a wonderful addition for our support packs, and we are thrilled to work with them!
We are working hard on getting our tote bags printed so we can get our support packs to our NICU. We are well-positioned to fill and deliver our first round of packs and we can't wait to share those details!
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.
