Our Story

Forget Me Not Baskets

Sara Ringle was a part of a Mom’s group in 2007.  She thought it would be great to do little community service projects as a way to give back.  Moms would be the focus for each project.  One day Sara picked up the phone and called her local hospital and asked what is done for families who experience a loss.  She spoke to the bereavement nurse and together they came up with some ideas.

About 2 weeks later Sara Ringle donated a basket of bereavement items that she thought would be helpful to a mom, who experienced a loss during pregnancy or child birth. She donated the basket to Wooster Community Hospital.  Six weeks later, the hospital called and they said that they used the baskets and wanted to know she had more.

At that time, Sara did not have another one, but after a short discussion with friends, she put together and donated two baskets, to the hospital. The cycle continued and she saw a need in her community. From that one small act of kindness, Forget-Me-Not Baskets was created.

13 years later Forget-Me-Not Baskets® has donated over 4,000 baskets.  They also shipped items throughout the country.
