All of the services provided by Precious Wings are free of charge and funded by our wonderful supporters and from public donations.

2. Donate a Memory Box to a Hospital
Due to our very generous supporters we are able to keep the cost of boxes down to $50. If you would like to donate box/es to a hospital we invite you to make a donation of $50 through our RBWH Foundation webpage. Please email us if you would like the box to be donated in memory of a baby or child and if you have a preference of which hospital you would like it to go to. Precious Wings will assemble the box/es in memory of the baby or child (or we will choose a baby or child if one is not specified) and deliver it to the requested hospital (if no specific hospital requested, delivery will be made to a hospital requiring more boxes). We will take a photo of the box and send it to you, please email us your contact details so we can do this.
3. Make Your Own Memory Box/es in Memory of a Baby or Child
One of our key aims is to empower bereaved families to create their own memory boxes in memory of their baby or child to supply their local hospitals. This is an immensely healing process and means each box is made with love and understanding. It is also a way for family and friends to come together and remember the child and means their memory lives on and they are able to help another family facing this devastating loss. We are able to offer support, advice and if required contents for the boxes, to enable the families to achieve this. The bereaved family can ask other family members and/or friends to make a donation and memory boxes and their contents can be provided. These can be picked up by the family from either a central storage area or the home of Kirstie or Kerry. The family can then make up the box/es in memory of their child and deliver them back to the central storage area or home of Kirstie or Kerry. The box/es are then delivered to the family's choice of hospital (if none specified, they will be delivered to the hospital requiring boxes next).
The family buys the contents of the boxes themselves (following Precious Wings guidelines) and assembles the boxes. They then deliver the boxes to Precious Wings. The box/es are then delivered to the hospital – the family can assist with delivery if they wish.

We would like to say thank you to all of you for your generous support with Precious Wings.
