We wanted to invite you to participate in our Mother’s Day initiative. The Lady Savant Foundation is taking over the NICU floor at St Joe’s Hospital in Paterson this Mother’s Day. Sadly (and unbelievably) some of these NICU moms have also tested positive for COVID. So they not only just gave birth and have a NICU baby, but fighting for their health and are all alone. As we know positive patients are not allowed visitors, and some will not be allowed to hold or touch their newborns for days or weeks.
So... it takes a village right? Let’s make this Mother’s Day a little brighter for other moms.. let’s let them know that they aren’t alone, and that someone is thinking of them and celebrating them during this crazy time.
How you can help:
We are putting together gift baskets and providing gift cards. If you have items to donate that’s great, looking for newborn diapers, self care items for mom, candy, chocolates, any gift cards. For most, Venmo or PayPal is most helpful as we gift cards more than anything else.
Any amount helps. If you would like to write a little note or card, we think they would love that too.
Have a question? Email us: email@example.com
Our goal is to get each mom a $50 gift card, in addition to other gifts
Normally, our focus is primarily on maintaining and enhancing our school in Cambodia, and growing our Young Volunteers program around the tri-state area. During these unprecedented times, we have temporarily shifted focus to Front Line workers and caring for NICU moms.
Show your support to local friends and neighbors who are working tirelessly around the clock. Say Thank You and show your appreciation with a ribbon in your yard to show them you care with our
RIBBONS OF GRATITUDE PROGRAM.
We are proud to say that 100% of our ribbon donations have gone to buy supplies for front line workers, and meals to local hospitals. To date, we have provided supplies to over 10 hospitals, several local private practices, nursing homes, doctors, nurses, technicians, and many essential worker who reached out for help.
🎀 Ribbons of Gratitude 🎀
We are so proud of our community showing so much gratitude to those putting themselves out there and keeping us safe! 🙌🏼
We would like to all of our Franklin Lakes and Wyckoff friends to please tie any color ribbon on your tree, mailbox, lamp post -- anywhere and everywhere!
Additionally, the Lady Savant Foundation is also offering the opportunity for you to "ribbon" someone else's home. For $10, Lady Savant will decorate the home of anyone you designate in Wyckoff or Franklin Lakes. You can "ribbon" the home of one of our dedicated front liners (some examples of local warriors below), a friend, or even your own home. 🌳 🎀 🏡
Our goal is to cover the town with ribbons so that, when these dedicated individuals drive through, they will see the endless gratitude we have for their service. Thank you to Rene for the ribbon donation!
All proceeds from this fundraiser will fund meals (from local restaurants) and supplies 😷 for the front line.
Special thanks to Alanna Alanna Arenstein and Amy Ben-David for helping organize and distribute ribbons!
