We are very excited to share with you the sample sleep sack that the hospital recently received from Halo! Everyone gave their approval, so now it is time to purchase the first batch of sleep sacks. The plan is to have them ready to hand out in January. Thank you to everyone who has donated money and supported us through thoughts and prayers to make this project happen! We are also very thankful for everyone at Liberty Hospital who has had a hand in the sleep sack project! This is only the beginning of this project, but it feels great to finally see the finished product!

Now for an update on our current fundraiser …

71 out of 100 squares have been sold! If you would like a chance at winning a gift certificate from Thirty-One Gifts, email me at info@kyleighsgift.com for more information. Each square is $5 and the raffle ends on Monday, November 18. At the end of the fundraiser, $300 will go to the Liberty Hospital Foundation to purchase sleep sacks! See below for more information …

Update as of October 22, 2013 ~ Square Fundraiser

It’s time for another family sponsored Kyleigh’s Gift fundraiser! I say it’s family sponsored because I do not want to confuse people with the connection between us and The Liberty Hospital Foundation. Plans are in the works to organize a fundraiser through the LHF, but this fundraiser has been organized by us, Kyleigh’s family, with a portion of the proceeds going to The Liberty Hospital Foundation ~ Kyleigh’s Gift Fund.

We are teaming up with Thirty-One again to create a square fundraiser. For $5, you can buy one square and have a chance at winning a Thirty-One gift card! Want more chances?? Buy more squares!!

When you buy a square, you are helping to fund sleep sacks through the Liberty Hospital Foundation ~ Kyleigh’s Gift. Once all 100 squares are filled, Callie (Thirty-One Consultant), will hold a drawing for 1st place ($100 gift card), 2nd place ($60 gift card) and 3rd place ($40 gift card).
At the conclusion of the fundraiser, $300 will be donated to The Liberty Hospital Foundation ~ Kyleigh’s Gift, funding over 40 sleep sacks!

To participate, email us at info@kyleighsgift.com … include your first and last name, number of squares you wish to purchase and contact info (phone number or email).

Update as of August 22, 2013

The Thirty-One fundraiser was a big success! We sold 13 bags and funded 22 sleep sacks with a donation of just over $150.00!! Thank you to everyone who purchased a large utility tote, as well, as those who made a cash donation!

We met with the Foundation office a few weeks ago and got an update on the sleep sack project. Our goal is to start handing out sleep sacks to newborns in January 2014. It’s hard to believe that that is only four months away! We are continuing to work with a designer to find the right graphic to embroider on the outside of the sleep sack. Once we have a completed design, the sleep sack company, Halo, will send us an example and if we like it, then we will order the first batch!

Here is an example of a Halo Sleep Sack:

We continue to look for ways to fully fund this project. A donation of $7 purchases 1 sleep sack. Donate online here (make note in the comments box that your donation is for Kyleigh’s Gift). We appreciate all donations!

Keep checking back for updates on the sleep sack project!

Update as of June 10, 2013 – Kyleigh’s Gift Fundraiser

We are teaming up with company Thirty-One to raise funds for Kyleigh’s Gift! For each Large Utility Tote sold from now until June 25th, $12.50 will be donated to The Liberty Hospital Foundation – Kyleigh’s Gift. That is enough to purchase one-and-a-half sleep sacks! See below for more information on the Kyleigh’s Gift sleep sack project.

Update as of June 5, 2013:

We met with The Liberty Hospital Foundation and the Birthing Center Director a few weeks ago and have begun taking steps to start our first project with the Kyleigh’s Gift Fund. The Birthing Center has been wanting to provide Halo Sleep Sacks to every baby born at Liberty Hospital. However, funds were not always available to purchase the 1,200 that they would need each year. We were approached by the LH Foundation and asked if we wanted to be a part of this project and use Kyleigh’s Gift as a way to fund the sleep sacks. Of course, we said yes! Right now, a team of designers are working on the logo that will be embroidered on each sleep sack.

Why sleep sacks?, you may ask. Many hospitals are making the transition from blankets to sleep sacks to promote healthy sleeping habits for newborns/infants. Sleep sacks are designed to keep a baby warm, while also keeping them securely swaddled. If just one family uses a Kyleigh’s Gift sleep sack and it keeps their baby safe while sleeping, then supporting this cause is worth it.

As was stated above, the hospital is wanting to purchase 1,200 sleep sacks. At $8 a piece, that is almost $10,000! Clearly, our next step is to raise the funds necessary to purchase the number of sleep sacks needed. We will do this in stages, with the hope that at some point, Kyleigh’s Gift will become self-funding and purchasing the sleep sacks from year to year will be very manageable.

Watch this page for updates regarding the progress of the sleep sacks, as well as other projects that will be funded through Kyleigh’s Gift. In the meantime, if you would like to donate to Kyleigh’s Gift, please visit: The Liberty Hospital Foundation. When prompted, denote “Kyleigh’s Gift” in your online donation, or on the memo line of your personal check. Remember, $8 covers the cost of just 1 sleep sack! Thank you for your support!
