CHERUBS H.O.P.E. (Helping Other Parents Expecting) Totebag Program assists families expecting babies born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia by providing them with much needed free information and support items through a community project in which all CDH families can participate and honor their children while helping new families affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
Donated items are collected by our members, CDH families and friends and put together into totebags by volunteers. Totebags are then mailed to families who are expecting babies born with CDH or who have newborns still hospitalized and battling Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. A totebag will be mailed out if your child is home from the NICU upon joining CHERUBS and it has been 4 months since your child’s birthday. Totebags may include any or some of the donated items listed below. Included with each totebag is CDH information, CDH awareness items and gifts for the baby on the way. To receive a totebag, please join CHERUBS at www.cherubs.org and a totebag will be mailed within 2 weeks of joining CHERUBS.
Over 100 new and expectant CDH parents join CHERUBS each year. This project was created for them, to help them through the first few weeks and months in dealing with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
We welcome new item donations for the totebags. Each tax-deductible item will be lovingly labeled in honor or in memory of your cherub (or you can choose to label them yourself). The following items are needed:
