What the Judges had to Say about Sweet Peanuts
“Barbara Armstrong, knew how to transform a pain into a fight to help in the fight against the suffering of other women, couples, concerned by the loss of a baby: it is a subject still too taboo. This initiative must be encouraged to last a long time.”
“Sweet Peanuts offers grieving parents with the support needed and has grown organically to help spread the word during the startup years. It is a growing network and I really am impressed with its mission.”
“After judging scores of nominations, this is the first one that made me cry. Thank you for the important work you’re doing. Kudos on the beautiful and tasteful items you select for your care packages. May your organisation succeed beyond your expectations.”
