Meet  Our Team

The Weighted Angels Team

We want to thank everyone for the encouraging messages! Our mission is to provide sets of Weighted Angels to our local hospitals so they can be placed in the arms of newly bereaved families. Our goal is for NO family to leave the hospital with empty arms. While we would love to fill every order that comes our way, we currently do not have the capacity to fill individual orders. We are so appreciative of your ongoing support for our unique mission and look forward to expanding our reach soon!
