look good, feel good update


SO – thank you SO MUCH for reaching out to offer to help with my newest idea!  I have received so much love and support so THANK YOU!  Please please please hang in there with me while I work out a few kinks.

Here are some things that have happened…

  1.  The incredible woman who created the #BEAstrong logo has done it again!  She made a gorgeous logo for our cause and I don’t think I have loved anything more.   There is SO much meaning behind each little detail.  I can’t wait to tell you more about it next week! Here it is!



2.  I secured a domain and am working on building out my website & Facebook page.  Again, more updates on that next week!

3.  I am working on a way to have the gowns made for free.  This is where I need feedback and help!  Right now, I am paying $10/gown to be made and I would LOVE if the only cost we had was fabric.  Does anyone know someone who can sew and is interested in teaming up with a cause like ours?  A church group of ladies?  Right now, we are making 3 gowns/child and I would love to have 3 gowns made/week.  If you know of ANYONE who is interested in helping us with this – please please PLEASE reach out: hillary@make-statements.com

4.  Figuring out a way to have people like YOU participate!  I’m thinking that I could send emails back to people that are interested in participating with links to fabric and how much yardage we need/child.  The thing we really need to figure out first is HOW these gowns are going to be made.

5.  We officially donated our first set of #lookGfeelG gowns to a patient at Cincinnati Children’s.  See below!  The gowns turned out amazing (they tie in the back but also have velcro at the shoulders) and we included a “puppy print” because our patient loves her dog 🙂  Hoping these gowns brightened her (and her parents) day!  I will send follow up pictures if I receive them.

6.  If you know anyone at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital that seems like they will be there for about a month or longer, please let me know (hillary@make-statements.com).  Because of HIPPA it is almost impossible for doctors or hospitals to put us in touch with families who might be a great fit so if you know of anyone and they would like to be a part of our Look Good, Feel Good initiative, let me know.  Preferably children staying at Cincinnati Childrens and once we get bigger, we will expand to more hospitals!

  1. These are so amazing!! Love it! Will you be doing these for boys too? I know it would probably target younger boys more so than the pre-teens/teens, but just wanted to see as I may have a family who would largely benefit from this amazing cause!!

  2. Hillary- You continue to amaze me!! I’m blown away by your talent! We’d like to donate to your cause. How do we go about doing that ? Let us know when you can.
    Love to you and the family,
