Mission Statement

Ryan and I have written the mission statement for Ella's Halo. It combines all things that we want our nonprofit to be, do and accomplish. Not only will Ella's Halo be in memory of our little girl, it will also be a lasting impact on other families and babies who have spent extended time in a NICU.

Our Mission states:

Ella’s Halo is a non-profit organization that was developed to help improve the quality of extended stays in Twin Cities’ NICUs (Neonatal Intensive Care Units). Our mission is carried out by providing a variety of items to NICUs, babies, and their families to help impart a better sense of home while in the hospital. Ella’s Halo accomplishes this through fundraising efforts, community events and education.

Not only do we have our mission but we have our first board meeting scheduled for October 15th. We are so excited to get things started. October 15th is our first board meeting but it is also Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Please light a candle on this day to honor all of the little babies who have gone too soon. Ella's Halo will officially have its first meeting and we couldn't think of a more special way for us to remember Ella than to kick off our organization on this day.
