I wanted to update you all. I did another count today and we are currently at 256 pairs of leggings.
AMAZING but we only have 3ish months left and I would love to collect MANY more.
This can be a great little service project for kids or even yourself. Feel free to share our project with everyone you know. I have all the information on the link at the top of my blog or you can click HERE. My goal is to donate 2000 pairs of leggings but I will be happy being able to donate any amount. I keep in contact with the amazing team at Primary Children's Hospital and they cant say enough how popular those leggings are. Everyone loves them. I have received a couple emails from parents of a child that received a pair of leggings just thanking all of YOU for your amazing donation. They have said how it completely brightens up their little ones day.
I hope none of you have ever experienced or never will experience life in a hospital with your sick babe. but if you do-- you know anything that brings a smile to your little ones face is life changing.
When we had our stay in the PICU I was overwhelmed with the amazing support and love people would give.
We were there over Thanksgiving and these 3 amazing families that all lost a child there in the PICU served Thanksgiving dinner to all us parents. The unity and support is out of this world. You cant imagine the simple joy it brought to all of us.
We were given blankets almost on a weekly basis. We loved them so much. You wouldn't think they would get so dirty but we always managed to spill something on them or Kenzie would pee on one or some of her fluids would leak.
There was so many other amazing acts of kindness show to us its really just incredible.
One of the great thing about the leggings project is that they are distributed throughout the hospital. Not just the PICU. So kids all over get to have a pair. Kids in the cancer ward, the burn unit, etc. This hospital is huge. They help kids from all over the country. Your donation is so important.
I hate to beg but I will. I want to share not only Makenzies story but all of yours-- showing people how generous all of you are.
I hope when you see a pair of leggings you snag a pair for this project. I hope if you are in a Target you grab a couple of their knee high socks to send this way. Even if you don't sew- ill do it for you!
Or you can always buy a cookbook. I would love to clear some of these boxes out of my closet. Its a win win for you... All money from the cookbooks goes to buying leggings and you get an amazing cookbook out of it. You can keep the cookbook or you can give it to someone as a gift. Christmas is not far off. How cute would a cookbook and a mixing spoon tied to it be for anyone. I love getting gifts like that. and you would totally be the most popular gift giver ever because whoever gets that cookbook will fall IN LOVE. You have no idea the amazing recipes that are in this thing. oh heavens!
Please spread the word. Please help.
There is no donation too small.
If you have any questions or would like the address to send your donation please email me at
Thank you so much for any help you can give!!!
Couldn't you just eat up those legs?!
