First being this precious little angel, who is the face, namesake, and inspiration behind Audrey's Army. Our gown not only helped Audrey through her many hospital stays, testings and procedures, but her mother and grandmothers, have been making homemade items to fill gift bags, some of which include a hospital gown as well.
Audrey's family, has taken the terrible experience of having their child taken from them and turned it into a blessing to other families in their local area.
For those who haven't heard about Healing Helpers before, they have stuffed animals that have surgeries performed, g-tubes, shunts, scars added, and so much more, to represent everything a child has been through. They are not a nonprofit organization, but they do accept donated items and animals and in return can lower the cost, and even give them away for to some families as well.
That little curly bear in the top row - was one of mine from high school when Build-a-Bear first opened. We went to the one in Myrtle Beach, waited in line for at least an hour in the sun and heat just to make an animal...yes, I am a big kid sometimes. With our move, it was something that not only I needed to pass along, but wanted to have a far greater purpose than being donated, so I added it into the box and I hope whomever can be blessed with it, truly loves it.
