Winnie's 1st Birthday Memorial Gift

As most of you know, our youngest daughter, Winnifred (Winnie) Marie, was born still on April 3, 2017.  Though her life was way shorter than we hoped for, the impact she still has on her family and the people that knew of her is huge.  She was the sweetest little girl throughout our entire pregnancy, and looked just like her Mama... with Daddy's nose.  We want to honor her life in a way that will help other mamas spend quality time with their littles.

To celebrate her 1st birthday we would like to raise money to provide an Expression Swing  for one of the playgrounds in our town of Exeter, NH. (Whether a town owned or finding a private park to donate to.)
I first saw this swing at the Henry Law playground in Dover, and I thought, how great would it be to swing with our girl.
Since we do not have that opportunity, we would like to provide for other families and also have a special place to bring her big sisters.

Expression Swing

Our goal is to have it installed at one of the Exeter playgrounds.  We have been looking at the Purple Dinosaur playground or Planet Playground (PP would be a few years out due to them re-doing the Rec area).  I have spoken with the Town of Exeter, and will continue to communicate with them to come up with a game plan when ready.

Thank you for any amount you are able to contribute.  I'm not sure how long we will keep this campaign open, but we'll take it one step at a time.  Our community is fantastic and we thank everyone for the support and compassion you have given us since this adventure started with our Winnie girl.

** Any extra funds will be donated to a local organization in her name.
