Spread the word about us!

We're looking for Sent from Heaven ambassadors! What's that? It's a simple commitment to spread the word about us and what we do. The people we reach are wholly dependent upon word-of-mouth referral. We don't advertise anywhere and we're still working on getting our information in local hospitals. So YOU are our best way to spread the word about us right now. 

This could take many different forms, including but not limited to:
  • Share our social media posts (super simple!)
  • Create an original post about us on your social media or blog
  • Give our cards to people you know
  • Bring it up in conversation with anyone you do business with like your hair stylist or barista. This could be as simple as, "Have you heard of the organization Sent from Heaven?" and then share what we do in a sentence or hand them our card.
  • Tell your pastors about us and our desire to partner with churches
  • Tell your OB, pediatrician, and general care doctor about us
You don't have to share in all of these ways; you can just choose what suits you. The point is just getting the word out. If you'd like to be an ambassador, fill out the short form below and we'll get a stack of our business cards to you with some basic information about the organization for anyone who has questions. You'll also get insider information about us and tips for sharing about what we do.

dreams for the future

When I founded Sent from Heaven about 2.5 years ago, I really wasn't sure what would happen. Up to this point, we have created nearly 70 care packages! They were all FREE, too! I have been trying to expand our reach by getting in touch with churches and hospitals. Sometimes this has been profitable, but often it has not. But I think there are other ways to expand our reach, so here are some dreams for the future:
  • Hire a social media guru (an intern or volunteer would be great!)
  • Create a board of directors that meets regularly and volunteers to help with what we're doing
  • Hold memorial services for families who have received baskets at least twice a year
  • Hold an annual couple's retreat for those who have lost a child
  • Learn more about the grieving process
  • Advocate for bereavement days at work after miscarriage
  • Open other Sent from Heaven chapters around the nation
Are you interested in any of this? Send me an email at sentfromheavenvisalia@gmail.com
