Giving back to the medical community where Meredith has, and continues to receive medical care is core to the mission and purpose to the Mighty Meredith Project.
This is driven by the care she has received across hospitals, physicians, nurses and child life specialists. Mighty Giving allows for future patients in situations just like Meredith to benefit from amazing comfort care during stressful times.
November 2017 - Meredith receiving medical treatment and benefiting from the generosity of strangers to make her visit more comfortable.
In order to provide meet our mission of Mighty Giving, we rely on the generosity of others throughout the year with product and/or financial donations.
The largest initiative we fund is our annual "Fill the Box" campaign that runs from October - December every year. 100% of the product donations go directly to the Child Life organizations in the hospitals where Meredith has received Treatment.
The second largest Mighty Giving initiative is our annual "Helmets for Heads" campaign to support Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness where bike helmets are collected and purchased; later donated to the local medical community in a variety of venues.
Our newest addition to the Mighty Giving initiatives are the creation of "Admission Kits" and are in the process of being assembled. They will be donated to Emergency Rooms for parents and guardians whose child is admitted through the ED leaving them with no personal belongings to transition from the ER to the inpatient floors, like it has happened with my mom during my hospital admissions. The Admission Kits help the transition process for the caregiver until more personal belongings can be delivered from home. These kits include personal care products and a gift card for a much needed cup of coffee.
In addition, we partner with organizations local to North Reading, MA during Easter in the creation of Easter Baskets and later donated patients of the Pediatric Neurology clinic at Tufts.
If you are interested in helping support one of our giving initiatives please contact us or donate online.
