BEAU’S BUNDLES

When our paths crossed last year, we knew we wanted to join this amazing couple, Katie & Brian Benden, in honoring their son, Beau.   Their precious son was stillborn and they have worked tirelessly to honor him by helping others.   When Katie and Brian learned that there were babies in Africa using rags and plastic bags for diapers, they created Beau’s Bundles to help these babies. 

Katie designed a great bag and we are asking you, your friends, co-workers, classmates, and family to fill them with cloth diapers, plastic pants, socks, light blankets and onesies.   Many of Katie and Brian’s family and friends are filling bags.   St. Casimir’s Catholic School is collecting items to fill bags as part of their outstanding community outreach.   Members of the Prayer Shawl Ministry of Sacred Heart Parish in Glyndon, Marylee McCusker, Lee Ann Walsh and many of their family and friends have made close to 300 comfort dolls that will be included in the bags.  Perhaps you can fill a bag or two?  You may belong to a group that would be willing to fill bags.   We have a team of 17 going to Africa so we have plenty of people to carry over these bags.  If you don’t have time to shop, you can click here to view Katie’s Amazon Wish List and purchase an item or two that will be shipped directly to her. You can also reach out to Katie by email at katiebenden@yahoo.com. We will be going into vulnerable communities in Tanzania to distribute Beau's Bundles to families in need.   We know that Beau and Scott are smiling that their families have been brought together.  When we return from Africa we will continue helping Katie and Brian distribute these bags to vulnerable children here at home.
