Tender Mercies Foundation of Southern Illinois (TMFSI), an Illinois not-for-profit, 501(3)c organization is focused on assisting families during the hardest times of pregnancy, infant and child loss. Some of the ways we help those are by providing memorial items such as locally hand crafted wood memory boxes, impression kits, locally sewn burial gowns, camera/printer and necessary equipment to the nurses, a personalized “Edwin” elephant with baby’s birth information and more. These items are given to the mothers while in the hospital or after a home delivery. We also host remembrance events throughout the year which is to encourage a supportive community of mothers and families affected by such loss. It is necessary to keep the conversation open in a safe place for those just experiencing a loss and those that are still healing in their loss(es). There are many goals of TMFSI but we recognize we can only meet those goals with the assistance of community members and businesses like yourself. This is your chance to invest in a local not-for-profit organization that truly practices what it preaches and invests 100% of its donations into the organization and community. Today, with a donation, you can help us reach out to the community, enhance our programming, and really help to make the families life easier during what is possibly the worst time of their life.
