Baby Quilts & Infant Demise Layettes needed:
Many folks may not be aware of the fact that basic essentials are needed at hospitals and medical clinics by patients. We are working on making a large number of baby quilts for hospitals, medical centers, crisis centers, homeless shelters and for individuals to snuggle their baby in. We also make the tiny burial gowns for the little ones who only need one last gown, bonnet and blanket to be cuddled in as their parents say goodbye before they have a chance to really say hello.
If you have fabric to donate for the baby quilts, burial layettes or baby clothing, we are needing solid pastel colors, any and all cotton, minkee, flannel, washable microsuede and other fabrics, and also batting for the inside of the quilts. Ribbon, lace and trim ar also needed to make the tiny burial gowns special. If you quilt or sew and would like to help, please contact us at info@ReliefShare.org

Refugee Center needs baby clothing, blankets, baby cocoons, and soft toys.
Life can be difficult when you find yourself in another country, fleeing from violence and pregnant. These young mothers are doing their best to learn about babies and how to take care of them, but its so hard they don't even speak the language and have no money yet. Refugees are allowed approx 8 months to get stabilized, find a job, adjust to a new culture and take care of their little ones. You can help ease the struggle with donations of basics for their babies. Items needed are blankets, clothing, hygiene items, pacifiers, baby cocoons, and crib bedding - pretty much anything a baby can use. Please help.
Your love and generous sharing is making a difference! Your donations have blessed the lives of many families across the country.
Note: The majority of our recipients are single parents who live under the poverty line and are trying to raise families by themselves on a limited income.
