A mom died of covid-19 before making a baby registry. A nurse — and strangers — pitched in.
Schwartz, a mother herself, sprang into action and created a register of items she knew the young family would need everything from diapers to toys to gift cards. She thought if she shared the link with a few colleagues, a few would join in. Schwartz didn’t expect what happened next: People from all over the country saw the registry and read local news stories about the Robisons, then bought almost everything on the list. an extra GoFundMe raised over $12,000 in just 10 days.
