Welcome


Welcome to Tiny Toes Project. Tiny Toes was formed after my boyfriend and I found out we were expecting our little boy. He was born early at 31 weeks and 2 days, after an attempt to stop labor around 26 weeks. My favourite part of being pregnant was shopping for our baby boy and feeling his little kicks. After watching other families struggle, and realizing our own struggles, I have decided I want to help other families and children.

I've since revamped our original idea of Tiny Toes and taken over. The mission of Tiny Toes Project is to sell items for children, and to use a portion of the proceeds from sales to benefit families and kids with disabilities and illnesses, as well as preemies. The way Tiny Toes Project will do this is through a variety of projects that benefit several charities.



One of the projects is a fundraiser in memory of my friend Bianca for Musician's On Call with CrowdriseWith part of the proceeds from my sales through Mercari and Ebay, I am using Amazon Smile to purchase items for UCSF Children's Benioff Hospital Registry, and my own personal "wish list" for kids and adults at my own hospital. Amazon Smile purchases will then generate donations for The Preemie Project, to help provide NICU families with comfort and support through a range of programs from crafting handmade donations like booties and bedding to offering financial services and bereavement items for families in need.

In addition to supporting Musician's On Call, The Preemie Project, UCSF, and UNMC, my hope is to provide grief and trauma resources for families who need help and eventually I am hoping to be able to fund grants or scholarships through the Support Dreams Fund for kids and adults whose lives have been affected by illness and overcoming severe obstacles. I'd like for Tiny Toes Project to eventually be its own non-profit when I am post-transplant and able to work, but for now this is what I am able to do with it and I'm excited to be able to do it.

I'm currently in the process of needing a double lung transplant but I figured I could build up the website and put some effort into creating a solid business model and promoting small sales to aid in supporting our mission to help families and children.

Support Tiny Toes Project if you're interested by purchasing hand picked items from our Store.

Thank You!
