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.
We have lots of great volunteer opportunities that range from hands on experiences all the way to helping from your phone or laptop! We are always looking for folks who are willing to help with event planning, fundraising, social media management to gathering supplies and much much more- we have something for all skill levels!
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.
- 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.
