Catherine Cares is excited to announce a partnership with the St. Louligans!

On January 20th, during the Louligans annual general meeting, Catherine Cares was announced as a charity partner with the Louligans. The Louligans is an organization with a storied history of being top notch St. Louis soccer supporters for 14 years. As we have come to know some members of the group we have recognized them as dedicated, passionate, extremely fun, welcoming and generous. Their impact on the St. Louis community has made St. Louis a better place to work, live, and play.

We are beyond thankful for the opportunity to partner with the Louligans. This partnership will help Catherine Cares uplift thousands more families experiencing an unimaginable journey. The heart of our mission is to serve families of babies facing a life-threatening diagnosis. Our Heartbeat Bears give families a tangible keepsake that provides comfort when they learn their precious baby has a life-threatening condition, an unforgettable moment.

We are both humbled and grateful the Louligan community will give families love and support in these moments. We can’t wait to share more details of this exciting partnership as the year unfolds! 

If the Louligans are a group you’re unfamiliar with, please learn more about the St. Louis City SC Supporters Group and all they do for the St. Louis Community.

Catherine Cares can only continue to grow and do more to serve families by your valuable donations. Please consider going to our donate page to assist us in uplifting families.

Billy G’s Gift Cards purchased in April 2020

During these challenging times, it’s important for Catherine Cares to remember where we started.

When we started Catherine Cares, we relied on restaurant partners to help establish us and trust us as a new organization.

We feel a responsibility to the restaurant community to help our restaurants through these difficult times.  Without our restaurants, we are unable to provide our services to families.

Catherine Cares has made it a goal to purchase gift cards to restaurant partners throughout this stay at home order time period to return the favor and offer some assistance to these wonderful and supportive restaurants.

Our first restaurant partner is Billy G’s in Kirkwood, one of the many Gianino Family Restaurants. Billy G’s has supported Catherine Cares from the very beginning. They have served our Urban Chestnut beer, Reine Liebe, sold our Heartbeat Bears and hosted several events for us. Billy G’s understands the importance of family and uplifting those families struggling with a baby’s newborn or prenatal life-threatening diagnosis. We are grateful for Billy G’s and all of their support!

We encourage our followers to order curbside pick-up from Billy G’s! It’s delicious!

And if you know of a struggling restaurant which might appreciate our support, please let us know. We will reach out to see if there might be a way we can help!

Thanks so much for helping these restaurants who have chosen to help us uplift families. #UpliftTogether #UpliftFamilies

Come enjoy some Reine Liebe at the Point’s Eat and Treat this year! Additional details can be found here!

Urban Chestnut makes a special beer for Catherine Cares. Come celebrate its return with us on Thursday, June 20th!

As 2014 neared completion, our life was very challenging. We were preparing for the arrival, and expected death, of our daughter, Catherine. We were also planning Catherine’s funeral and buying our family burial plot while trying to keep our spirits for our toddler, Madeline. On the positive side, we came up with the idea of Catherine Cares, filed the necessary paperwork with local and federal governments, and built the initial website. We went public with Catherine Cares on 12/20/14, not knowing Catherine would arrive seven weeks early just 10 days later on 12/30/14.

The immediate support for Catherine Cares was profound, but it was also somewhat shocking as we heard from many friends who suddenly felt empowered to share their own stories. We naively had no idea so many people chose to keep things private.

A few months after we launched, in early 2015, we were given numerous learning opportunities. While support for Catherine Cares continued to grow, some harsh realities were also presented. Specifically, the need to separate our role as Catherine’s parents from running Catherine Cares. This separation was very difficult for the first couple of months after laying Catherine to rest. Has this realization not occurred, our growth and support would’ve stalled and we would’ve never made it to today. Thanks to those who assisted us with this realization.

Families soon began receiving our services through our hospital partnerships within the St. Louis area. Hospitals and families saw value in our services and we quickly spread throughout the midwest. This led us to begin designing and creating new services to assist families. The core of which was our heartbeat bears service.

We delivered our first heartbeat bears to hospitals in early February 2017. Many of our generous St. Louis business supporters such as Ryan Kelley and some of the insideSTL team were there for the initial delivery at various St. Louis hospitals. It was a special day.

Explosive growth followed as hospitals and families throughout the United States and Europe saw the value and impact of our heartbeat bears. This growth required us to focus our energy on being able to maintain and support our current hospital partnerships as well as the numerous new partnerships forming. We pivoted to create numerous programs such as Bucks for Bears as a result, but the growth also meant our existing website design started to no longer fit our needs.

Later that year, on 11/17/17, our family welcomed our third daughter, Hannah, to the world. By now, families from all over were reaching out because they felt empowered to share their stories. Stories of infertility, miscarriage, loss, or a life-threatening diagnoses. We knew they needed a platform to share their stories so we added the empowering families functionality.

While we kept adding to the website to accommodate the new services, programs, and functionality, the website didn’t speak to anyone. Families, restaurant owners, hospitals, businesses, and others would often visit our site, but it had become very disjointed. Our brand and reputation began to suffer from our poor web representation.

Which brings us to today as we launch our new re-designed website which includes additional functionality for website visitors and hospital partners. With the help of Spry Digital, a St. Louis based nationwide company who specializes in positioning companies for success in the digital world, Catherine Cares is now able to effectively speak to our audiences, add additional services, better align with our donors and show visitors the incredible impact we provide to hospitals and families.

We invite you to browse through the website and provide your feedback. If you choose to make a gift or reach out to sign-up for a program or event, we’d be very grateful. But, your feedback on the new site is of the utmost importance. We encourage and welcome all feedback.

Finally, we know we have much left to do. We’re just scratching the surface on the impact we make on families. We have every intention of continuing to do more. Thanks so much for your continued support.

P.S. Be on the lookout as we will soon announce additional ways Catherine Cares will be uplifting even more families!

Participants get to go behind the glass to create their very own personal medium size pizza: tossing the dough and adding any topping they wish. And it’s fun to throw some flour at the glass just like the professionals. Smiles and full tummies all around!

Catherine Cares enjoyed celebrating Family Day at Urban Chestnut Oktoberfest! We provided family fun activities – crafts, cookie decorating and a scavenger hunt. Families were able to learn about Catherine Cares and our mission while having good, clean, family fun!

Catherine Cares was honored to be the special guests and recipients of the proceeds raised from the annual Bogies 4 Babies event. It was a wonderful day of golf and uplifting families!
