February is my month! I'm going to really get things rolling with my "Bug Hug" project. . .I'm hoping to have one "Bug Hug" ready to take to Pittsburgh with me when I go this spring (April-ish). I will try to make a blanket unless someone wants to make one and send it as a donation. Also I would love ANY resaurant gift cards (any amnount) if you can afford to donate one. These are for the patients and their families to help them with the costs of meals while they are recovering from the transplant. I think it will be easy to make my first one for a "female" that way I can know to get a s/m robe and cute socks, lotions. . etc. I would like to include some kind of fancy electronic ie: ipad, ipod touch, tablet, or a cheap laptop.
I will sit down and make an official list of things I would like to have in my duffel bags and if you see something you would like to donate please let me know and I'll give you the address to send it to. Also Visa Cash cards would be great to include & can help us buy things we didn't get donated. I'm hoping to get in contact with someone who may know how to get this foundation set up as a 501c so your donations can hopefully be tax deductable.
These are also options that will be available: Sponsers for a "bug hug" a filled duffle bag will be given in the sponser's name and mentioned as a sponser on my website Jamiebug.com when I get that dedicated to mainly this project :) I have a vision of this and I think it could be really great!! Hopefully we are able to get at least one "Bug Hug" to most of the large transplant centers by the end of the year.
Also Tribute's will be available: You may sponser a "bug hug" in memory of a loved one or to HONOR a Recipient/Donor name to honor them. We will include your tributes story (if provided) and the gift duffle will be given in their name.
Like I said I will start to put together the VERY FIRST one starting in February. I will get a duffel bag and start there. Email me if you are interested in donating something to be put in it :)
These are just a few ideas I have brewing in my head. I would love to get a couple done and given away and hopefully raise interest and support for more!
