Ok...we have August filled with Newborns in Need. Our own Craftster jp197012 has provided the info...thanks so much.
We're set! Let's get Crafting!!
Here is a copy of the PM I rec'd from jp197012 regarding NIN:
"Newborns in Need, Inc. (NIN) is a 501(c)3 charity organized to take care of sick and needy babies and their families; and in cases of crisis, to help where help is needed.
No matter what the weather is - spring, summer, winter or fall - babies are in need of clothing, blankets, and essentials to keep them warm. Some of the items urgently needed at all times of the year are:
Sleepers (preemie and newborn)
Gowns (preemie and newborn)
Pacifiers (many hospitals do not have pacifiers to give babies to calm them after surgery or while babies are stressed, this is an urgent and most important item)
Baby hygiene items such as baby powder, baby shampoo, baby lotion, baby soap, diaper rash cream, etc are in seriously short supply - please help.
Quilts, baby afghans and blankets
Crib sheets - we have a huge need for crib sheets at this time.
Outfits - tops, bottoms, sets, clothing
Diapers - preemie, newborn, and older disposable diapers. Cloth diapers are appreciated.
Bottles - preemie, 4 ounce and 8 ounce bottles - all types. Bottle lines are also appreciated.
Burial layettes - burial gowns, bonnets, blankets and memorial items are needed
Booties, socks and shoes
They offer pattern sets for sale and links to free patterns for many of the items in crochet, knit, or sewing. They have chapters throughout the country, so if people want their crafts to stay locally, they can.
