Good Sorts

I met Joan Curle at the MISS Foundation conference in October and blogged about the work she is doing with an organization called Sands NZ. Here is a short video showing that work in action. The piece is from a series on New Zealand television called "Good Sorts" which I think in Canadian roughly translates as "People Making a Difference, Eh".

It's hard to picture a supply room like the one in this video - with baskets, blankets, teddy bears and baby clothes - at our hospital, where Toren's mementoes were given to us in a ziplock bag. Other hospitals in Greater Vancouver have memory boxes which would be a step up.
