Little Llamas Ministry began when Desiree Gagliardotto was compelled to help mamas with unplanned pregnancies & NICU mamas challenged by the unexpected. Desiree's passion led to a 501c3 nonprofit organization being formed in 2019. Little Llamas Ministry Inc. began shipping baby clothing boxes from a converted garage in New Port Richey, FL. It didn't take long before baby clothing boxes shipped to all 50 states & mamas across the USA were looking for a local chapter. Since then, Little Llamas USA® has registered a trademark, planted a local chapter within a pregnancy clinic & received a grant from PreBorn of a Mindray DC-70 ultrasound machine. LLUSA mission outreach includes planting local chapters across the United States through church & pregnancy clinic partnerships. Little Llamas USA® newest location in Sanford, FL will provide storage of clothing/nursery items, a workspace for sorting donations and a community space for assembling clothing/first essentials for baby boxes.
*Sanford, FL location coming in October 2023!
Little Llamas USA® supports mamas with unplanned pregnancies & NICU mamas challenged by the unexpected within the United States. We provide baby clothing boxes (preemie to 4t); Beginnings Boxes (First Essentials for Baby); baby registries for special needs; baby showers on the go through church partnerships; pregnancy education & ultrasounds through clinic partnerships; safe sleep training & cribettes through Cribs for Kids® partnership and car seats/booster seats through car seat program partnership.

LLUSA clothing boxes have reached all 50 states!
We help mamas prepare for their baby’s arrival by sending newborn clothing at 36 weeks of pregnancy. For NICU mamas we send preemie/newborn clothing upon NICU graduation. When additional support is needed LLUSA will continue to send clothing as baby grows, up to 4 years old or the size 4t.

LLUSA baby showers on the go are in partnership with local chapters & scheduled at 36 weeks of pregnancy. They provide mamas with baby essentials needed to bring their baby home from the hospital. Church partners will receive a LLUSA Beginnings Box & Newborn Clothing Box for shower. To receive a cribette through Cribs for Kids partnership an online Safe Sleep Training class must be completed by the mama. *NICU mamas can schedule a baby shower on the go upon NICU graduation if baby was born before 36 weeks gestation.
Donate to help us ship a cribette to a mama anywhere in the USA with Cribs for Kids® partnership (total cost $94.99)

Luke 9:48 Then he said to them,"Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest." LLUSA believes that life begins at conception, that God is Sovereign and therefore He is the only authority to give and take life. Our hope is found in the Gospel and we share that with our mamas. We realize that not everyone believes as we do and help all regardless of belief.
