We have a parent who is a photographer who hosts photo shoots for our families and charges $25 which gets donated directly to our program. She creates a yearly calendar which we sell and all proceeds go to our program. For our 2022 calendar we had over 100 families apply to participate!
Heather

Excellent point, Amy Allison! Not every parent is ready to be a part of this kind of outreach
Christie Ashby
29:05
Amy can you share the letter for the bad experience
Amy Allison
31:12
I will get the letter to hospital to stephanie so she can share with all attendees. Dora I have your email and will send you the b'day party handout we make
Heather
31:59
How did you correct that mistake, Kim Baich?
Heather
36:25
Turnover is a thing! And transfer of info and contacts doesn't always happen.
Heather
36:48
Different hospital depts. don't always talk to each other
Heather
38:18
Where to start when going into a hospital when you have NO contacts at all
Amy Allison
38:55

Would appreciate understandinghow thegroups obtain emails and appropriate contacts in hospitals. We struggle with getting emails.
Amy Allison
40:36
emails are not easy to find online. In person visits to hospitals net me more emails than searching websites of hospitals
Mahala Turner
41:50
Question! I think you mentioned a list of available grants at "foundation center". What is this? Sorry if this is a silly question.

thank you!

We run into resistance to training (even though it’s free) if we can’t offer continuing education credits. We often get asked if we offer CME/CNE. We’re working on this but do you run into resistance when you can’t offer continuing education credits, and what is your response?
Amy Allison
45:43
the hospital typically provides me paperwork to complete if they want CME's tied to the training.
Amy Allison
45:54
it's a pain to complete the paperwork but worth it to get in there!
Laura Whitekettle

Thanks!
Courtney Elbert

I appreciate all these links and resources. I am interested in receiving them for sure!
Courtney Elbert
54:28
Any chance one of you has your magazine/folder on hand to show? Ex: Amy, I’m curious what magazine you leave at the hospitals. Do you deliver those 250 magazines in person or mail them.
Amy Allison
57:28
Scroll down this page to see our new beginnings magazine with old branding on it. https://kcdsi.org/new-parents/
Amy Allison
57:35
our new one is not live yet on the page. OOPS!
Amy Allison
58:59
i will hand deliver 5-10 magazines to each hospital in the coming weeks and leave a business card with my contact information and make sure the hospital knows we will visit night or day, weekends and holidays if a family requests a visit
Amy Allison
