a little update

Hi!

So it has been forever since I updated everyone on our fun project!  We made some changes and it is going SO well.

We started out creating custom hospital gowns for children with an extended stay at Cincinnati Children’s.  We would have nominations, learn more about each child and family and create gowns that aligned with what they loved.  It was going great, however, it became a little heavy on my heart.  I was getting so involved with the families and worried so much about the children.  It was too much for me so I had to shift the focus of our initiative.

SO – now, after several discussion, we have worked out a relationship with the Sewing Room & Child Life at Cincinnati Children’s.  We have grown our #SewingSquad to over 20+ members and after sending them their initial package, they have sent me back gowns which we will donate in bulk to the hospital.  Cincinnati Children’s will launder and package with our gift wrapping before matching each gown with a child who will love it.

I am so excited about this change and we are getting ready to make our first bulk gown donation in the coming weeks!

Please check back with updates and follow along with #lookGfeelG to see the progress of our #SewingSquad 🙂

Hi!

Look Good, Feel Good started in 2015 as a small, personal project. My daughter, Beatrice (6 months at the time) had a liver transplant and I was so thankful to have been a match for her. In preparation for our big surgery, we had matching hospital gowns made to help us Look Good and Feel Good!

Read more about our journey HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. And follow along via Instagram with #BEAstrong.

Over two years later, Beatrice and I are both recovered and doing well. We are now on a mission to help other families in unfortunate situations see a little hope, light, and maybe a few smiles during their stay at the hospital.
