#Giving Tuesday Is Here
Friends and Supporters of JD’s Angel Wings, Inc. (JDSAW, Inc.),
Thank you for your continued thoughtfulness for our non-profit. We were founded 8 months ago to aid grieving families with navigating the unimaginable task of surviving the loss of a baby in the 3rd trimester, in honor of our son James D. Anderson III. In less than a year, JD’s Angel Wings has helped support 6 bereaved families, sent curated keepsake boxes and or tokens of support to an additional 7 bereaved families. Some of the services families have taken advantage of include: Financial Support (Funeral Costs, Medical Bills), Counseling, a Healing trip, Memorial support, 1 month of access to a personal trainer.
We absolutely could not have done any of this without your generosity and assistance. We also held our first annual Family Rock n’ Bowl fundraiser this year, hosting about 100+ attendees. Additionally, we donated 4 small keepsake boxes to 2 local Massachusetts hospitals directing future families in need of support to JDSAW. We will continue to organize awareness fundraising events and partnerships with hospitals in 2019.
While we hope families never suffer this type of loss, we intend to be prepared when called to help. To continue to grow our capacity to provide comfort for families, we ask that you consider making a donation on #GivingTuesday, November 27th.
We respect the privacy of the families we support, but wanted to share some of the gratitude expressed to JD’s Angel Wings this year:
-“In our gray world, the skies have just turned slightly blue. The God sized hole that I have aches all the time. The burning in my stomach has stopped as I felt the biggest hug. JD’s Angel has provided a gift of hope.“
-“So grateful for JD’s Angel Wings for sending my husband and I away on a little healing retreat. We desperately needed this time together and we are being spoiled.”
-“I received the most beautiful keepsake box in the mail today. I am blown away by the generosity and thoughtfulness that has gone into it.”
-“The love and care far exceeded my expectations.”
-“@jdsangelwings is one in a million. I can‘t express how much this means to us and I need to find out how to share this non-profit with more people. I am speechless. I just can’t thank you enough.”
