NICU Holiday Bags

The picture isn't the greatest but a group of Mom's here in FL who had preemies or babies who died, we got together to make holiday bags for families in the NICU on Christmas Day. The christmas card was designed by a little boy who lost his twin brother who were both born prematurely. We put in the bags christmas cookies, layettes, a camera (sometimes when you have a preemie you dont have time to get your camera to the hospital), snacks, water, chapstick, hand sanitizer, teddy bears, lotion, laundry detergent, note pads, pens, etc... We are very proud of this project. I have spent two months of my life in a NICU between our two boys and it was no fun. We're delivering these bags next week to the families in the NICU at varying hospitals in Jacksonville...

That is the most wonderful thing ever - My son spent 12 days in the NICU and it was the longest 12 days of my life. What a great project - it'll be so appreciated!

I actually really like that you focused on the card, since it has significant meaning. What a wonderful gift for those worried, waiting parents and babies!
