Dear Lipsett friends and fam…
Dear Lipsett friends and family, Thank you again for your support. Emily and Andrew's greatest wish is to have a charitable contribution to give infants across the world access to the care they received for Ida. I'm making a $1000 contribution in her name today. Additional funds (about $400) will be used for some takeout gift cards, and I recently learned Emily needs new non-maternity, non-regular clothes for a work wardrobe since she is returning earlier than planned. I am honored to have helped rally all the people who love her. She knows how lucky she is to know you all. Happy New Year. Please get in touch with questions or suggestions.

I'm sorry, I forgot to add one additional expense I've paid out of the fund so far: after talking to Emily about how great the Winchester Hospital staff was, I sent some thank you flowers over there today, from "The Friends and Family of Emily, Andrew, and Ida Lipsett." That's YOU. Thank you again for your generosity.

Dear Lipsett Friends and Family,

Thank you so much for all of the support. I just talked to Emily again and she is so moved and grateful to you all.

Here are a few updates:

One possibility we had discussed for an early use of our funds is to offset their funeral expenses. However, Emily said that the funeral home might wind up waiving all or most of their usual fee. I'm in regular contact with them about this.

Emily and Andrew have selected Doctors Without Borders as their charity of choice. We will send a major donation in Ida's name shortly after the new year. However, in the meantime I am slowly convincing them to retain a small portion for self-care and maybe a small fun activity for them and for Henry.

We have already purchased flowers and magazines, and as of today -- the "Hamilton" soundtrack. Emily is still struggling with sciatica and with physical recovery and so we are hoping to send some diversions her way as she is recovering.

Please feel free to send suggestions my way or to get in touch via my personal email: jenn.cunningham@gmail.com. You've entrusted me with a great responsibility and I want to be sure that Emily and Andrew get all the support and comfort that we can provide, but also that we are transparent about how the funds are used.

Thank you again to all, from me and from Emily, Andrew, and Henry.
