Nude Hosiery, Designed for Women of Every Colour, By a Woman of Colour
Frangi Pangi is rooted in the belief that to do well in life or in business means doing good in your community and beyond. That's why company founder and CEO Jocelyn Maminta spends so much time and energy supporting non-profits in her adopted state of Connecticut and as time and travel allows, elsewhere too. But the organization which owns her heart is Caroline's Room - named for her daughter who died after two months in the neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) of Yale New Haven Children's Hospital.
Caroline's Room builds safe havens in the NICUs of hospitals across the country. These are elegant, professionally and custom-designed rooms for families facing the uncertainties of having a baby born too soon. These rooms can be used for the many consultations and family time needed to deal with a premature baby and to consider the many options and outcomes that come with it. These rooms can also be used for the initial trauma of end of life which happens in about 15% of cases. Caroline's Room also advocates for issues relating to healthy babies and NICU research.
Profits from Frangi Pangi support this work which was begun in 1997. There are currently ten Caroline's Rooms in Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Texas and Virgina. This year, we will be adding rooms in Dallas and Columbus, Ohio.
