I haven’t blogged for a while now and what better way to come back to it than by sharing the charity work I am involved with ♥.
Along with a bunch of other fantastic ladies, I have been sewing tiny little gowns for premature babies. The gowns once sewn are sent to the charity Early Buds where they are added to a pack of other goodies and sent out to new preemie parents at hospitals nationwide.
Whilst sewing these little gowns I thought to myself, how can I help out the parents of the really early ones too tiny to wear a gown? The result of my musing is a bunch of cheerfully patterned sleep masks. I figured it must be pretty hard to get any kip in the NICU especially with the lights and noises going 24/7 not to mention the natural worry that a new preemie parent faces.
If you would also like to help you can visit the Early Buds “Support Us” page where you can find many ways to help and support the charity.
Alternatively you could sponsor the gowns I make. Each of these gowns cost $3 in materials to make. I can provide the sewing skills and each of you can help provide the funds for the fabrics, Velcro and postage. If you would like to be a part of the giving to this awesome cause please donate $3 (or multiples thereof) to the following account:
03-1392-0014448-000 Prem Baby Gown Fund
In return for your donation I will add your name to each gown you sponsor. You can view a list of all sponsors here. If you would like your donation to be anonymous please let me know.
