Spring has sprung! SAVE THE MONTH! Holy Sews presents our 2018 April Showers! For the entire month of April, Holy Sews will promote, educate, share, thank, ask, appeal, engage, and inspire those who see any of Holy Sews’ posts, in hopes to spark a call to action for you to connect with us.
Prayerfully, we want to educate and effectively communicate the immense need to provide (for free) micro-preemie layettes to hospitals, perinatal bereavement programs, funeral homes, organizations, and individuals all over the United States who are in desperate need to clothe the tiniest of babies who do not survive after delivery.
Holy Sews is just one organization, if not the only organization in the entire nation/world, that has answered the call to help fill the unique and special niche of providing complete handmade layettes for babies born between 16-25 weeks gestation. We are growing at an exponential rate! For example, in January of this year, Holy Sews now provides layettes to almost 400 hospitals in all 50 states! We are humbled and honored to be able to fulfill this unique service. Our massive growth spurt has challenged us to identify areas of need and develop strategic plans to help Holy Sews continue to provide layettes to our current partners along with all the new partners we anticipate gaining!
Please keep watch for daily updates, testimonials, educational information, volunteer, and giving opportunities! Holy Sews hopes April Showers will provide you an opportunity to give back, and to give back specifically for families who are in the deepest stages of grief. We will share specific ideas in the next few days; yet, we encourage you to be creative and to share your “shower” on social media and then share your “shower” success stories! You will inspire others!

Holy Sews is excited about 2018. 2017 was a stellar year for us and we were able to increase our layette giving throughout the entire United States. As of January 31, 2018, Holy Sews is currently in all 50 states serving close to 400 hospitals!
We are excited regarding the direction of our journey and humbled that God has blessed us to fulfill the needs and minister to those families, nurses, and hospitals who are able to use our layettes as a tool for comfort in unbelieveable times of grief. Please keep following us in the days to come…big things are coming and we want you to continue with us on our journey!
Please consider Holy Sews when choosing which charities and/or organizations you and your family plan to give to at the end of 2017!

Straight from the #GivingTuesday website, www.givingtuesday.org, here is a description of what it is all about:
“#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We’ve created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.”
#GivingTuesday will be on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, and Holy Sews will be partnering with them! There will be several ways to give, so please keep checking back for our online “DIY Holy Sews #GivingTuesday Packet”!
For all of our volunteers,We will provide and have available customized logos, materials you can customize and use on your own Social Media accounts to promote Holy Sews, directions on where and how to enhance your giving, and we encourage you to educate others by sharing your story. So many people experience the loss we have experienced and don’t know who to talk to or where to reach out for a friend…let’s be that hand they can hold and know, really know, they are being understood.
So, please mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 28 for a HUGE nationwide online fundraising campaign. More information is coming, so come back and visit us!
