Getting into the heart and never coming off

Fundraising by Marta Bertelè

You were born on a spring night.

Longing for life, at 400 grams and 30 cm you met a doctor who believed that 1 in 2 apgar (score that determines if the newborn is healthy).
You were a gift right away when we met you in neonatology in your warm nest with your eyes blindfolded, a woollen star on your body, two tiny hands clenched into a fist and a rosary beads left by your mom.
A phone call announced your presence, someone for you asked for a cozy place, a home, someone to care for you in the first months of life. We had been entrusted with a precious pearl to love intensely for a small stretch of time but one that would surely tame our hearts.

Like you, so many other children with serious illnesses or disabilities are left in the hospital, waiting for a family to take them in. I cannot take them all in but I can do something for them by supporting the "Portami a Casa" project in Lombardy that will help the families of origin of these children and the moms and dads who choose to care for them every day, loving them unconditionally.


You, too, can be hope for these babies.
Help me start the project, I really care about it and it touches me closely...that's why I'm asking for your help.


You can support the project in two ways:

By donating to my collection or, if you want, you can multiply your help by starting your own fundraiser to share with your friends, just like I did.


Every donation will enable so many children to have a peaceful future surrounded by love.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The fundraiser supports the project: Take Me Home: a project to give a family to children with disabilities
Total project goal: 20.000 €

The "Take Me Home" project promotes the right of every child to live in a family, including children with serious illnesses or disabilities. Initially launched in Piedmont, now the Pope John XXIII Community wants to extend the project to Lombardy, and to do so it needs resources (€20,000). Through awareness raising and support actions it is possible to give hope and a better future to children with disabilities, in need of care and love. With your help we can build stories with happy endings for these fragile children.
