Today, I had the opportunity to meet with some volunteers who paint boxes for the local hospitals. One of their boxes was given to me when I had my daughter 2 years ago, which sparked my whole interest in memory boxes.
What I am trying to do with TYLA Memory Boxes is expand on the whole idea by providing items for the parents to create and preserve memories of their child. I wanted to find out more about their program, and perhaps see if we could collaborate a little bit.
I was asked to stay for a while and I sealed some boxes that had already been painted. It was a nice opportunity. It is definately a wonderful volunteer program, and I do hope to keep in touch with these women in the future.
I will continue to work on my boxes, even if TYLA Memory Boxes does not ever become an official charity.
