They achieve this goal by alleviating the home stresses while parents sit with their hospital-bound child, by providing them with experienced resources to whom they can vent or who can be used as sounding boards either in person or by telephone, by reducing some daily cares such as housecleaning, lawn maintenance, and meals from local restaurants, by providing a consolidated location where they can research medications and treatment protocols via links to reputable websites, among other services, and by providing access to other service providers who can assist them with those needs not met by Normal Moments, Inc.

warm wishes logoWarm Wishes
Warm Wishes made its first delivery in December, 1995, when a box of ten blankets was sent to a mother with nine children on the near north side of Chicago. The founder, Bob Gorski, realized that there was a great need for something that many of us often take for granted – a blanket. Being from the Chicago area, he felt it was important to start right here in this community.Warm Wishes is a not-for-profit organization that is tax exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the U.S. Tax Code. The purpose is to provide blankets, comforters, quilts, and sleeping bags to those in need.Deliveries are made to overnight shelters, the homeless, or other financially disadvantaged people. Women and children, recovering substance abusers, and the elderly are just some of the beneficiaries. Although winter is the primary season for blanket distribution, the need is year round. Victims of fire, newborns, and street people cannot afford to wait until winter for a blanket.

You may then mail your registration fee to the IBSA missions team.Since there is a limit to how many can participate in each project and at each location, early registration is recommended.
