Clothing drive in Jasper's name

I wanted to come up with a way to help other babies that are born to early and have to live in the NICU. I thought about it for a while and I came up with a clothing drive in Jasper's name and donate it to the NICU where Jasper spent his life. I really haven't got all the details together yet and i'm still trying to come up with a poster or flyer and starting another blog for it. I plan on bringing the stuff I get to the NICU on Jasper's Birthday. If anyone has any ideas or knows anyone that might be able to help me with ideas. Comment or email me at jasperthomas@live.com thank you.



  1. I love that idea. That will be very healing for you. When you get it up and running, let me know. I'll post it on my blog too. And, I'll send you something too! I made Jasper's butterfly today. I'll post it tomorrow morning.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your son Jasper. What a handsome little guy. Our little girl, Zoelle Hazel died 1-4-09 at almost 24 weeks. My water ruptured at 22 weeks (on Christmas)and was born over a week later. She lived for about an hour after birth.

    I think a clothing drive is a wonderful idea! What a beautiful way to honor your son's life. I have been wanting to do something similar in honor of Zoe, but I haven't decided on what to do.

    I was reading through your blog and I understand how insensitive people can be when it comes to pre-term infants. I have had crude and hurtful comments said to me as well...I try to recognize that people lack awareness regarding infant loss. No matter what...the comments still hurt.

    You are in my thoughts. Hugs, Kate

  3. I think this is a really great idea! I found your blog through the Preeclamsia forums.

  4. Lisa I would love to mail you a handkerchief.
    Please send me your full name & address.
