CuddleCot Campaign Thank You

What a gift you have given to so many families.  After raising enough for one CuddleCot in just 14 hours, we decided to raise the challenge and try to fund money to purchase two cots.  In seven days and twenty-two minutes you gifted $8,345.00!  

This means:
  • One CuddleCot will be donated to St. Luke's Hospital (Kansas City/Plaza).
  • The second CuddleCot will be ordered and donated to another hospital after we research and prayerfully consider which one will use it most.
  • You Made Me Mom now has funds to spend on becoming an official non-profit ministry! We will use funds on business cards, paper resources for local hospitals, the bassinet program for miscarriage and stillbirth.  We will have enough money in the new bank account of You Made Me Mom for future projects to support the ministry, and thus families affected by loss of a child.
These generous donations speak love to us and honor the legacies of our two sons, Simon and Thomas.  

Thank you for responding with an overwhelming "YES" to our call to love and help others families in need. You have made a huge difference in the lives of families experiencing the loss of their newborn. 

Thank you for your willingness to give time to these families.

We will be donating the first CuddleCot in Kansas City this morning, May 22, 2015 at 10:30am at St. Luke's Labor and Delivery.  




With sincere gratitude,
Amy, Adam, Teddy, Simon, and Thomas Balentine

    2. Shanna,
      I'm unsure if you know someone who might be in need of use of the Cot but feel free to email me directly if you have any questions. Happy to talk and help.
