Someone asked me if it would be a good idea to put their angel's name on items that they donate for the boxes. I think it might be a good idea, but I want to hear what others have to say.
I guess, in my opinion it would be best if it is a piece of paper or something removable, so that the reciever can see that they are not alone and that other people understand and care, but so that it doesn't appear to be an item that "belongs" to the other child. Does that make sense? I would not write ON the box "in memory of..." but put a paper inside it, or next to the item. I know that when I recieved my daughter's bear, a few months after she died, they sent me a blanket and outfit as well and there was a slip of paper saying who donated the item. I thought that was nice (I should write to that person)
Perhaps items should be put in a ziplock bag along with their "donated in the memory of..." papers?
