Donate to Graham's Foundation to help preemie parents!

While Lea was still in the NICU, I came upon an amazing resource for micro-preemie parents: Graham's Foundation. If you are a preemie parent, I urge you to visit this site!

Graham's Foundation is a non-profit founded in 2009 by Jennifer and Nick Hall in memory of their son, Graham. Its mission is to offer both practical and emotional support to parents of micro-preemie babies. The foundation supports the parents by sending care packages to them during their journey in the NICU. Also, the foundation’s website provides a place for parents to share their stories and find support, which I found most helpful as a preemie parent.

I recently had the opportunity to join this amazing team as the Director of Graphic Design. I'm so proud to be a part of such a fantastic cause!

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Graham's Foundation has partnered with Pampers to  help them launch their year-long Little Miracle Missions by deliverying more than 30,000 care packages this week to all the Level 3 NICUs in the US and Canada. Not only that, but Pampers is generously matching all donations collected for Graham's for the next 90 days, up to $20,000!

I urge you to donate to this cause! Even the smallest donations count! If you have a preemie, you know that the smallest gestures of kindness make such a big impact on your state of mind. Being isolated in an NICU day in and day out while visiting your baby can make you feel so alone. I can assure you that every parent that receives one of these care packages will have their spirits lifted, and will know that people out there like you care. Thank you for your generosity and compassion in advance!

    What a most beautiful and important cause. I will continue to pray for the parents of preemie babies as long as I breathe. This lets them know they are not alone.

  3. Dear Jessica,

    I love the promotion of such a great organization and I am glad that you are helping the preemie cause. However, some of us have an insatiable (sp?) appetite (the fun kind of appetite...not the creepy kind) for pictures of that cutie pie, Lea. So, post some pictures for us blog-o-sphere acquaintances to oogle!

    Sincerely,
    Your Blog-o-sphere Acquaintance
