our mission


The Stay Strong Tote foundation is a volunteer based non-profit organization  dedicated to creating a community of support for moms of critically ill hosptialized children.  By combining the generosity of kind individuals with the talent and passion of the knit and crochet community we are hoping to  let some very worried moms know their journeys are not invisible.

Donations fund our totes and volunteers from the knit and crochet community provide the handmade shrugs designed to wrap each mom in love, hoping they’ll feel the kindness of strangers and know we are thinking of them- sending good wishes their way.

Each Stay Strong Tote includes a handwritten card from the maker of the shrug and a card recognizing a person who donated in any way to supporting our mission -  personalizing each tote and truly including everyone.

Unfortunately, we can not reach every mom.  But we can do our best and make a difference to as many as we can.  

One tote at a time, 

one shrug at a time, 

one mom at a time.  

The SSTf is registered with the federal government as a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
