Frequently Asked Questions

 I made a donation. How do I get a receipt for taxes? 

If you have made a donation to Weighted Angels and are needing a receipt for tax purposes, please send your request to

Does Weighted Angels sell the Angels or take individual orders?

Weighted Angels is made up of four bereaved mothers who donate and volunteer their time to this organization. While we would love for every single loss family to receive a Weighted Angel, our main focus is ensuring families in Virginia never leave the hospital with empty arms after experiencing pregnancy & infant loss. As our organization continues to grow, we are looking forward to being able to expand to hospitals throughout the United States 

With that being said, we have been able to better structure our organization to allow an extremely limited number of individual requests per month. Should you request an Angel during a month with no availability, we will automatically place you on the next month with availability. 

We are a non-profit organization and are only able to complete individual requests through donations. We do not charge for our Angels but we do recommend that you make a minimum donation of $25. This will help to cover shipping charges as shipping can be very expensive when shipping our weighted Angels. Please know that we do not ship internationally.

We recommend that the donation for shipping be sent by the 15th of the month your Angel is to ship. Each Angel will be shipped on the last Saturday of every month. We will notify you with shipping confirmation and tracking information. 

Please know that we have zero control of shipping times and/or delays. If you should have an issue, please contact USPS directly.

Once you complete the form below, you will be invoiced through PayPal and will ship once paid. 

We are excited that we are able to help more loss families outside of the current hospitals we serve!

 Do you all take monetary donations? 

Yes, we take monetary and supply donations! We are so thankful for the donations that our organization receives. Without you all, we wouldn't be able to support the families we do.

I love your mission! How do I get involved?

Weighted Angels puts on several Fundraising Events throughout the year. We are always seeking volunteers to help with our events and to help make our Angels. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, fill out our form here.
