BOX Newborn Essentials - Hurricanes

Imagine how you would feel if you have a NICU baby or a newborn and your family is displaced or in a shelter.  

This fundaiser is to help those families by providing the essentials for babies birth to 3 months.

My name is Zachary Jackson, I am 16 years old,  and I am a former preemie that survived a flood of the NICU.     
With the help of our family and friends, we are raising money and supplies to provide GIFT BOXES OF ESSENTIALS FOR NICU/NEWBORNS for parents of babies (0-3months) that are displaced from their homes in areas hit by Harvey in Texas and Louisiana, and Irma in Florida.  

100% of the funds you donate will be for the GIFT BOXES of essentials.  

Nurtured by Design will match the donations with products (The Zaky, Kangaroo Zak, and Zen by Zak)
If sending products from home or an online store, click here for an updated list of products that are needed, and please send/ship them to this address and include your contact info:

Zachary Jackson/GIFT BOX,    
131 5th Street
Sugar Land, Texas 77498

Please let me know when and what items you will be sending so I will be on the lookout.
I was a preemie that was born weighing less than 2 pounds in 2001 and I survived the deluge of Tropical Storm Allison that shut down the power to my life-support equipment in Houston.  My mom, that dark day of the flood in 2001, made a promise to help babies on my behalf and now I am joining her!  She has spent the last 16 years helping babies in hospitals globally and at home and founded Nurtured by Design. We hope you consider joining us and help welcome babies into a gentler world.

Please donate now and help nurture a newborn.

This is a video from Oprah, telling my story of survival during Tropical Storm Allison and how it changed my mom's career.

On the insert is me, a week before the flood, with my parents, and the photo on the right is me with my niece, Elena, this year.

This week I have been helping victims of Harvey with my  family,  my friend Jad, and the Boy Scouts.  

Thank you for helping us! Please donate Now!
