A Letter From Best Beginnings to Creflo Dollar Global Missions

Dear David,

Best Beginnings: all about a better start for Britain's babies

I am writing to thank you, Dr. Creflo A. Dollar and your congregation for your generous donation of £13259.45 towards the work of Best Beginnings. We are very grateful to have your support, which enables us to meet our vision of a future where all children in the UK enjoy excellent care from the very beginning, where families have the information and support needed to protect their children's health and where illnesses and deaths can be avoided.

You may have seen on our website that Best Beginnings' next major project is to create a DVD that will enable the parents of sick and premature babies to play a pivotal role in their child's critical first weeks and months of life. I will give a unique window into the day-to-day challenges of five families with premature and sick babies in three neonatal units across the UK. The DVD will give step-by-step help and support including guidance on: the benefits of skin-to-skin contact for parent and child wellbeing; the benefits of positive touch and how to respond to a baby's non-verbal cues; and the benefits of breast milk and the best ways to establish a good breast milk supply for premature babies. All of these outcomes can significantly improve health outcomes for babies and/or parent and child bonding and wellbeing. The finished DVD will then be given free to all families with a baby in one of the UK's 220 neonatal units.

We would be delighted for you to share information about the work of Best Beginnings on your website. Our website is or you may wish to link to a short film about what we have achieved over the past two years and why the above mentioned DVD is so vital. Just link to

I do hope that you will continue to support the work of Best Beginnings and thank you once again for your very generous support.

With kind Regards,

Tami McMahon
