CHRIS's 4th Annual NICU bags

In September of 2014 we welcomed our son 5 weeks, 4 days premature. We had a week-long stay in UNC NICU, as new parents totally unprepared for this bump in the road.

Every year since we have donated these comfort bags to the UNC NICU. Last year we were able to gift over 80 bags to families stuck in the NICU over the holidays! This year, being our fourth, we’d like to do as many or close to 100! We are lucky to get various donations from businesses each year to make these bags better and better.

The comfort bags costs about $20/each. Anything is helpful! Any donations will go towards blankets, toiletries, snack bars and Starbucks gift cards for the bags. If you'd like to donate those specific items, versus money, please contact me personally for address!

We are thankful everyday for a healthy child! This year give the gift of comfort to families in need!
