CUDDLE BED CAMPAIGN

 

Created using the Donation Thermometer plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/donation-thermometer/.$150,000Raised $22,225 towards the $150,000 target.$22,225Raised $22,225 towards the $150,000 target.15%

Beds are “core” to our services here at Mariposa House Hospice.  We have launched a campaign to replace our second hand, donated beds with Cuddle Beds.  The expandible design of these beds allows 2 people to lay side-by-side and maintain physical contact. Being touched and experiencing intimacy with family and loved ones helps residents who are at end of life.

Each Cuddle Bed costs approximately $30,000 and our goal is to replace all 5 beds.

If you would like to donate to this campaign, please click the Donate button at the top and choose “Cuddle Bed Campaign” from the drop down list.
