A mom died of covid-19 before making a baby registry. A nurse — and strangers — pitched in.
Schwartz, a mother herself, sprung into action, creating a registry of items she knew the young family would need, from diapers to toys to gift cards. She thought if she shared the link with some co-workers, a few might pitch in. Schwartz didn’t expect what happened next: People from across the country saw the registry and read local news stories about the Robisons, then bought nearly everything listed. An additional fundraiser on GoFundMe.com raised more than $12,000 in just 10 days.
