Since its beginnings in the fall of 2013, more than 50 families coping with stillbirth and infant loss have benefitted from the love and support of Paislee’s Foundation.
Established by Tyler and Jessica Cripps of Alexandria in memory of their daughter Paislee Cheyanne Cripps, who was stillborn on May 3, 2013, the foundation’s purpose is to support those whose lives have been touched tragically within the past six months due to stillbirth, infant loss, or child loss up to three years old. Through the foundation, families can receive funds to assist them with funeral costs or other expenses.
One of the annual fundraisers is set for Saturday, October 12 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the DeKalb County Fairgrounds in Alexandria. Dozens of vendors and a large crowd of shoppers are expected for the 6th annual Paislee’s Foundation Craft & Home Show in the Kenneth Sandlin Center. Admission and parking are free.
All proceeds from the craft show and other fundraisers, including an annual 5K and chili supper go directly to the foundation, a 501c 3 non-profit organization. Donations accepted.
