What Does It All Cost?

$20  -  SHIPPING

Approx. the cost of shipping one care package - this is our greatest expense


Along with a Potato Head, our volunteers make fun items like tiny legwarmers, preemie hats and MORE. Donations can be used to fund the materials needed


Every package comes with our favorite classic kids toy


The approximate cost of one of the care packages that we send to NICU families across the country.

Shipping and Supplies

One of our biggest expenses is shipping. It's not fancy or fun. It's boring and dull. Who likes to pay shipping? Not us!

But as boring as it is- it is the only way to get our packages into the hands of NICU families across the country.


Monetary donations help us fund things like shipping and other pesky, yet necessary, expenses.  We have a vision to bringing hope and love to NICU families across the country and we simply can't do it without you.

Whether you are able to dedicate a few hours or a few days, send us a message and we would love to get you involved! 


The Tiniest Accessories

Over the years we have added extra goodies to our care packages. Some of these items are specially handcrafted by our amazing group of crafty volunteers. 

-Preemie Leggings

- Tiny Knitted Hats

- Isolate Hearts

- Baby Blankets

We are always looking for people willing to donate their time and talents to this endeavor as well as those willing to donate supplies.

We could NOT do this without our amazing supporters

It truly does take a village. Whether you are moved to share your time, talents or monetary donations - every little bit counts!


This is a group effort and we are so thankful for our community of friends and family (near and far) that show up and walk alongside us in this journey. 

Thank you!
