The Colette Gazette - October 15, 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,
Hope you are enjoying the fall weather or anti-fall weather as it appears we are having here. We have been busy and most recently, got away for a few days to relax. Elliott was really loving it because the cabinets and drawers did not have child-proof locks on them like we have at home. He also is walking around a lot and keeping us active chasing him around.
Tonight is the International Wave of Light, a tribute to babies gone too soon. We will be lighting 120 candles in honor of the babies whose families we have helped, as well as two in honor of Sweet Pea and Colette. We hope you will join us for this beautiful tribute and if you do, please tag us in any pictures you take.
We are on a short break from applications and will reopen on October 20. In the meantime, we’re getting through all the previously submitted applications and doing some various behind the scenes work. One exciting thing that we have learned about is that Easy Standard has launched a product line named after Colette. I am so grateful for their partnership and cannot wait until I get my Colette pants! Check them out!
Have a great couple of weeks and enjoy my favorite season, Fall!
–Michelle
