Cuddle Bear NICU and RMDH donation

32485172_1535417953355214_r.jpegIn celebration of JJ's 4th birthday on September 3rd, we are trying to raise $1000 to give 50 personal Cuddle Bears & matching story books to the NICU families at the Edward Hospital NICU. We are also hoping to bring a catered meal to the Ronald McDonald House at Edward Hospital. 

For those of you that don't know, my son, JJ, spent the first 40 days of his life in the NICU at Edward Hospital. When parents are trying to bond with their baby in the NICU through limited care times and kangaroo care, reading books and hearing familiar voices can soothe a preemie and it greatly helps parents as they are in a less than ideal situation with their newborn. Each Cuddle Bear Set is $25. This would be an INCREDIBLE gift for the families that spend any amount of time in the NICU. No worries if it's not in the budget…but if it is, we'd appreciate your help  :)

This is a 48 hour (August 27-August 29th) fundraiser only! Let's rally and come together and give back to the NICU families. Thank you in advance as this is near and dear to our hearts! We will be making a large donation to the cause as well! Please share this link with anyone who you may know that might want to donate! Thank you!
