"BB" CRASHERS was created after our partners at OWLET® created Showers Crashers, selecting deserving families across the country to go and fill their registry and surprise them at their Baby Shower.
In December of 2019, we crashed our first family. The Conyers family from Norfolk NE. The family was nominated from friends and family after their hard times of infertility, stillbirth, and miscarriage. After we selected this family, we were sent out to surprise them with baby items for their dear unborn baby that would be arriving soon.
We crashed their work meeting with the help of the selected new parents-to-be employers, Premier Marketing & Eakes Office Supplies. Our board went shopping for items the family would be needing and surprised them! Along with help of our Sponsors listed below.
Do you know a deserving family like the Conyers? If so, click 'Nominate' below and share their story.
For a family to be eligible:
Must live within 20 miles of Norfolk, NE.
Must have a minimum of 3 nominations submitted to us.
Nomination application must be filled out in full detail with as much information as you can provide.
WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO HAVE AN ORGANIZATION LIKE BRIGGS AND BARRETT PROJECT IN OUR COMMUNITY. THE ANXIETY OF BEING PREGNANT AFTER HAVING LOST 2 BABIES IS SO HIGH, YOU'RE CONSTANTLY THINKING OF ALL POSSIBLE OUTCOMES. BEING SURPRISED WITH THE OWLET SMART SOCK, OWLET VIDEO MONITOR, DIAPERS, WIPES, CAR SEAT, STROLLER, TOYS AND OTHER NEW BABY ESSENTIALS DEFINITELY HELPS TO EASE OUR STRESSES, FINANCIALLY AND EMOTIONALLY. THE GIFT OF THE OWLET SOCK AND CAMERA WILL HELP TO RELIEVE OUR WORRIES WHILE OUR NEW BABY SLEEPS TO MAKE SURE THEIR HEART RATE OR OXYGEN LEVELS DON'T DIP TOO HIGH/LOW. THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO EXPRESS HOW GRATEFUL WE ARE TO HAVE AN AMAZING FAMILY AND SUPPORT SYSTEM TO HAVE NOMINATED US. AND TO THE BRIGGS AND BARRETT PROJECT FOR CHOOSING US AS THE RECIPIENTS. THEY ARE AN AMAZING ORGANIZATION AND HAVE THE BIGGEST HEARTS TO RAISE AWARENESS AND HELP OTHERS IN OUR COMMUNITY SO OTHER FAMILIES DON'T HAVE TO SUFFER THE SAME TRAGIC LOSSES.
Yesterday, you completely caught me by surprise by "crashing" my work. I can't thank you enough. Sorry I was a blubbering mess - embarrassing. I've followed Briggs' and Barrett's stories and the project on Facebook since the beginning and both you and Melissa's stories have moved me very much. I think you ladies and your families are so incredible and I look up to you. Getting to meet you was really great and had me pretty emotional. I had no idea my friends and mom wrote in and nominated us. I've never had a baby shower, sprinkle, diaper keg, or anything, because I've always been too scared to celebrate in case something bad happens (that's silly, I know, but I haven't had the greatest luck on this journey). So, that was the closest thing to a shower or celebration that I've ever had. We are due August 20th and I'm scared, but starting to get so excited. I still sometimes can't believe that it's real, after 2 losses before my daughter, 3 years of trying for baby #2, 4 failed IUIs, and finally IVF. I feel so extremely blessed to become a mommy again, something a lot of women aren't fortunate enough to experience. I love being a mom literally more than anything in the world. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for how lucky I am. I just want to write and say thank you for everything, from the gifts to traveling all the way to Neligh to surprise me. I can't wait to use the sock (I've never had one before and didn't really have the money to buy one) and I'll do my best to spread the word about Briggs and Barrett. I know they're so incredibly proud of their mommies and this amazing project. Thank you, again.
