The Preemie Project comforts premature and critically ill infants and their families at The University of Iowa Children’s Hospital by giving gifts of hats, booties and blankets that have been handcrafted by a devoted group of local and national volunteers. In addition, The Preemie Project offers solace to families who are grieving a loss by providing bereavement items such as handcrafted burial layettes and tokens of remembrance. The Preemie Project uses financial contributions to supply UI Children’s Hospital families in financial crisis with basic necessities such as diapers, toiletries and clothing.

I don't have anything to contribute, but I just wanted to give you a big 'thank you' for what you're doing.

My nephew was a preemie and spent the entire holiday season at a university hospital in Michigan with a similar program (or maybe just a few thoughtful locals) and it was very much appreciated.

We actually have a local chapter in Michigan, so it could have been our group. Smiley  I'm glad your family was able to enjoy the donations.

This is an awesome charity!
I was born a preemie in Iowa, and luckily didn't have to go to UICH. But thanks to you, I just signed up to donate knitted items!! THANKS!!
