Childrens Hospital happy pillows
Organized by: Gail Parlin
We would like to raise money to provide travel size pillows with fun, cheery pillow cases for these children . The funds will go to buy the pillow forms & some fun fabrics for the cases. There are several ladies that are donating their time, fabrics & sewing skills, to make the cases for the ICU children. Our hope & purpose, is to bring some smiles, happiness & maybe a little security, among their chaotic & uncertain (scary) surroundings. We would like for this to be a on going project, for years to come, adding more sewing partners & more donated resources. Our story, our personal why: Nearly 2 yrs ago, our youngest grandson (2 yrs at the time) had a very unfortunate accident, that resulted in severe head trauma. He was air flighted to Dallas Childrens Hospital, where he was cared for in the ICU. He received wonderful care while there, Through the efforts of all the dr's, nurses, staff & Gods amazing healing power, he made a amazing full recovery, a true miracle. (See FB page: Prayers for MattMatt @ https://www.facebook.com/PrayersforMattMatt/ ). Hi, my name is Gail Parlin. I'm the grandmother to 15 beautiful grandchildren. As a parent or grand parent, we all know, that children are our greatest treasures. When, our children hurt, we hurt. We always look for a way to ease their pain. So, this is our small way, of paying forward, the kindness & generosity, shown to us & our grandson, while he was in a critical care unit, at Childrens Hospital in Dallas. To sponsor a pillow with case is appox. $5. Most of the funds will go to purchase pillow forms (12x16) which cost about $3.00 each. And, some of the funds may help to purchase the fabrics for the cases, appox. $2. Any amount is certainly appreciated. Our goal is to provide about 100 pillows, each month. (These pillows will be taken home by each child). The $6,000 goal will get us through 1 yr. Thank you for reading & considering to invest in the lives of critically ill children.
