Three Little Birds is creating a nest for families suffering from the unimaginable loss of a pregnancy or baby. The services and programs developed by Three Little Birds are based on the personal experience of founders, Brent & Kristen Samuelson. In their healing journey, they were appalled by the lack of resources provided to them by their hospital and overwhelmed by the amount of support found online and in the local community. After meeting Now I Lay Me Down the Sleep Affiliated Volunteer Photographer, Desiree Miller, the trio founded Three Little Birds Perinatal & Palliative Care Advocacy & Support Center. After two years of research, bedside advocacy, memory making and administrative development, we are ready to expand our nest and involve the generous and supportive local community to assist us in developing events, fundraisers and gatherings for families to meet, connect and heal together.
Just as the African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child”. The same is true for a baby who does not live. The family unknowingly needs a village to help them guide the weeks, months and anniversaries that follow after they leave the hospital empty armed and broken hearted. Many people, not knowing how to approach or comfort the family tell them…”If you need anything, please let me know!” “Let us know how we can help!”. But the truth is, life is so incredibly overwhelming, families do not know what they need or even how to ask for it. This leaves everyone feeling helpless and unsure of how to help or what to say.
Three Little Birds is developing comprehensive services to not only assist families bedside, but to educate medical staff of how they can effectively communicate with staff and empower themselves in caring for families through these difficult decisions and memories. We are just one small group of many doing similar work, but what makes Three Little Birds different is we provide full support immediately and long term. While we are focused on the Delaware Valley region, our outreach is growing. We are dedicated to remaining a community based volunteer support for families and thrive with our community connections, sponsorships and partnerships! We invite you to explore the sponsorship and volunteer opportunities available to you this year!.
In 2018, Three Little Birds is planning to host two major fundraisers, one family night and one appreciation gathering.. The financial support gained from these sponsorships will help facilitate the event and the remainder will go towards the specific program or service we are looking to develop. Since this is our first year planning major fundraising events, we are working to establish long-term sponsorships and connections that will carry us into the future and establish annual events. Below we have provided summaries of the events we are looking to host and how you may be able to help. Our event sponsorship package offers several mutual benefits in promotion, advertising in addition to tax incentives.
