As we mentioned in our Q1 organization update, we set out this year with the goal of fulfilling items from the NICU wish list on two special occasions, the first being Olivia’s first birthday on April 24. Since she’s not here with us in person, we were happy to purchase toys and developmentally appropriate items for other babies in need during this special month. With the help of the NICU Child Life team, we were able to identify some of the most needed items this season.
Thank you to everyone who made donations to The Pink Zebra Club during the month of April, and to those who purchased items directly from Olivia’s 1st Birthday Wish List!
With your help, we delivered an entire trunk filled with boxes to the NICU. We purchased over $500 worth of developmental toys, board books, crib soothers, crib mobiles, and sound machines.
Donating money directly to the NICU is always important, but we have a soft spot in our hearts for our NICU Needs program, as it gives us the opportunity to browse, buy, and deliver actual items directly to a team that gave so many memories to our daughter.
