Brothers and Sisters grieve too.

 In honor of Ellie's 2nd Angelversary, we are having our annual Belle's Buddies Drive. 

Ellie's Light is collecting stuffed animals for the bereavement programs at local hospitals to give out to siblings when a child passes away. A Buddy gives the sibling something to cuddle and hold on to in their time of sadness. It also serves as a reminder of the brother or sister that is no longer with them. Its important for us to remember and support the siblings in their time of grief too.

We will be donating the stuffed animals to local bereavement programs. Buddies will be brought into the hospital on an as-needed basis to the hospital. We need your help to collect these very important Buddies!

Buddy (Stuffed Animal) Requirements:
  • Must be new
  • Good (high) quality
  • Must be soft and plush!
  • We are looking for Buddies for boys and girls, of all ages
  • No religious connotations (per hospital request)
  • Recommended sizes: typical Teddy Bear sizes (about 12").
