Introducing Sweet Pea Project's Founding Board of Directors!

A note from the founder:

When the Sweet Pea Project first began it was just me. I collected blankets from friends and family members and drove to my local hospitals to donate them. I am amazed (and touched and grateful!) by how much the project has grown in less than two years time. I now gratefully accept donations from all over the world, and over 650 Sweet Pea Project blankets have been donated across the country. I have written a book which has been added to the donation program and the website has become a comforting and resourceful place for grieving parents to visit. To make sure the Sweet Pea Project continues to expand to meet the needs of bereaved parents, I have decided to ask Beth Gauthier, Nicole Spadea Jackson and Simone L. Lee to join me as members of the founding board of directors for the Sweet Pea Project. Each one is a dear friend and an incredible mother, and I know that together we will be able to do amazing things for our community. I feel as though I am watching a beautiful dream unfold before my eyes and I am so excited to see what we will be able to accomplish next. Please join me in welcoming Beth, Nicole and Simone and take a moment to visit www.sweetpeaproject.org/board to read a brief bio about each new member of the Sweet Pea Project team. Thank you for your continued support of my project, it means so very much to me.
