I’m so excited to announce that we are partnering with Simply From The Heart to bring bedtime boxes to children in Chicago hospitals!
Amidst the current COVID environment, I and another Chicagoland mom, Jackelyn Gauci Kastanis, founder of Simply From The Heart, have partnered on an incredible collaboration to bring children in hospitals the comfort of a magical bedtime story during a time when connection with friends and family is so limited. We announced a strategic partnership to deliver magic, confidence and comfort this holiday season.
I will be donating copies of The Snugawinks of Cuddleton Falls to Simply From The Heart to be included in their signature Glam and Bedtime Boxes this holiday season with the mission to pamper with purpose. Not only will patients receive a wellness box with accessories, make-up, wellness products and fun accessories to boost confidence, self-esteem and a patient’s overall well-being, children will also receive a copy of The Snugawinks of Cuddleton Falls, to magically inspire them to snuggle up with the Snugawinks, all the way to Dreamland.
When I wrote the first book, The Snugawinks of Cuddleton Falls about six years ago, my vision was to share the story with children who were hospitalized, so they too can go on a magical journey to Dreamland on a lollipop truck. Finding the right charity to accomplish this was a big priority for me when I published the book in May, 2020. As soon as I met Jackelyn and learned of her important mission, I knew Simply From The Heart was the perfect fit. We both have the same goal of bringing magic and comfort to those who need it most.
In addition, for every book sold on my website www.snugawinks.com, I will donate 10% to Simply From The Heart as a long-term commitment to support the important work they do to boost morale and wellness for patients in hospitals throughout Chicagoland.
Please join me in this mission to bring children in hospitals some joy, warmth and snuggles this holiday season. Purchase your copy HERE.
About Simply From the Heart: Simply From The Heart was founded by Jackelyn Gauci Kastanis after her best friend Brooke Bolley lost her battle to cancer. Jackelyn spent a year visiting Brooke in the hospital and witnessed firsthand how someone can so easily be stripped of normalcy. Brooke was a hairdresser and understood beauty intuitively. Simply From The Heart honors Brooke’s memory and enriches the lives of patients through services that offer beauty, self-esteem, and well-being. The services provided not only heighten the way they look, but more importantly how they feel. Being pampered and cared for is what we believe empowers patients to look good, feel better, and promote healing and recovery. Simply From The Heart aims to provide smiles for patients. When little things raise a patient’s spirits, it brings out the fight in them and reminds them why life can be worth living. Being pampered and cared for, whether it be at the salon or in the hospital makes our patients feel special and beautiful. This is what we believe gives patients the strength to live their life more normally and with pride. For more information, please visit http://sftheart.org.
