The Colette Gazette
The Colette Gazette - May 14, 2021
The mission of The Colette Louise Tisdahl Foundation is to improve outcomes of pregnancy, childbirth, prematurity, and infancy, as well as aid in the grieving process through financial assistance, education, and advocacy
Dear Friend,
Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all your moms, grandmas, aunts, stepmoms, sisters, and mother figures! Mother’s Day is always a bittersweet day to me. This year, I celebrated my first Mother’s Day with a living child, but I have been a mom for five years. I was honored to write an article for Newsweek about the joy and grief that is intertwined for me when it comes to Mother’s Day.
We also have our Spring Silent Auction going on right now. There are a ton of great items available and every penny raised will go to our financial assistance fund. Check it out!
Speaking of our financial assistance fund, our final total raised during our newsletter signup campaign was $653.75. This will be a huge help to the families applying for assistance! Welcome to all of our new subscribers!
Check out our website as well for this week’s Friday Five on infertility by our friend Ali Dunn as well as a guest blog from new friend and contact Sehreen Noor Ali who has co-founded Sleuth, a platform for parents to share information about their children’s health and diagnoses. She is currently offering a $10 Amazon gift card to families who submit a full story. All information is anonymous.
Hope you have a great week!

What We're Doing
We helped families in Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia.
Also, check out our online Spring Silent Auction in honor of Colette’s life and death. There are so many great items and every penny goes to our financial assistance fund to help families in crisis due to high-risk or complicated pregnancies, NICU stays, or loss.
