How You Can Help.

Baby Booties

  • Sew, crochet or knit a pair (or several!) of baby booties in a color combination of black, white, and/or gray. Make each pair unique.  Treat each one as a tiny elegy for a too-brief life. READ THE DONATION FORM BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR BABY BOOTIES.  It has instructions on how to present the baby shoes.  Please mail all baby booties by Mothers Day, May 12, 2019 to Mary Vaneecke at 2000 S. Hermosa, Tucson, AZ  85713.
  • Make a pair of baby booties in memory or in honor of someone (see details on donation form/checklist)
  • Ask your friends to make a pair of booties.
  • Host a baby bootie making party. It is a great chance to talk about the issue, how it has affected you, and share some of the solutions to the problem.  (Click here for info on the problem and solutions)
  • Having a birthday? Ask your friends to make a pair in your honor.
