formerly the Stay Strong Tote foundation, our name has changed but our mission hasn't
A Stay Strong Tote is a care package with items chosen specifically for moms who might find themselves spending many nights along the bedside of their critically ill hospitalized child. A tote includes a travel toothbrush and toothpaste, lip balm, hand, a nail file, a pen and journal, a pack of tissues, an adult coloring book, colored pencils, a pencil sharpener and a handmade shrug donated by a member of the knit and crochet community.
Although we primarily ship our care packages to pediatric social workers and child life specialists in children's hospitals, we are looking to reach as many moms across the United States as possible.
We will Send a Hug through a Shrug to a mom YOU know, by request , to the home address of a mom with a child battling pediatric cancer. Your $50 donation helps cover shipping.
When making your $50 donation through Paypal, please include the mom’s name and address in the ”notes” section during checkout. If you'd like to add a short message, add this in the notes section as well or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Please note we are currently only shipping to addresses in the Unites States. We can typically ship within 24 hours of receiving a request Monday through Friday.

Your $50 donation helps cover shipping. Please include the address, including mom's name in the notes portion during paypal checkout. Add a message in the notes as well and we will include it with your shrug.
Thank you for joining our community and supporting moms with critically ill hospitalized children.
