Bedside Organizers

The Hawaiian islands have a unique set of challenges for Moms who find themselves on bed rest or having a high risk pregnancy. Often it is moms who live on one of the outer islands, medivac-ed over to O’ahu to Kapiolani Medical center to wait until baby is born.  There are many stories of families who don’t get to be together during this time. Maybe the Dad can’t take that much time off of work, or they have other kids at home, no matter what the story is the problem is the same; Moms who are in one of the most stressful, anxiety filled, painful times of their lives alone and in need of encouragement and something special to brighten their day.  The hospital staff is excited to receive them as they never have enough for the need. Each organizer can be filled with different things. So if your family would like to adopt one organizer and fill it you can also put a special note of encouragement inside as well. Please feel free to also wrap a baby item to go along with your organizer.

OR you can fill a bedside organizer for a child who is stuck in their bed due to illness or injury often for a long time. This is an excellent place to hide small treasures, and keep toys at arms reach even when they have to clean their bed off for a procedure.

Examples of things to include are:
Soduku Books
Crossword puzzles
Baby scrapbooking kits
Thank you card craft kits
small toys
Counted cross stitch kits
Pencils / crayons / colored pencils
Deck of Cards
craft kits
I tunes gift cards
