»»There are over 100 families on the waiting list for Mrs. Duck Grief Packets. We simply cannot continue this program without your sponsorship. We need a $1,000 Sponsor now in order to simply catch up with the waiting list. Your sponsorship is totally tax deductible through our umbrella organization The MISS Foundation which is a 501c3. Please make your pledge today!
Donations to our umbrella provide support for the Mrs. Duck Kindness Project providing free grief support and books to bereaved families around the world. Know that 10% of your donation will go toward medical research about the prevention of cord accidents and toward the Seattle chapter of MISS which provides free monthly support meetings and outreach to bereaved parents. The balance of your donation will support Mrs. Duck! It takes $10 to provide one support package to bereaved families. 39,000 families in the U.S. alone suffer thru stillbirth each year-- that 39,000 families we'd like to be reaching. Please help us reach them all!
