What We Do
We provide comfort items to 15 different NICU's between North and South Carolina. Our first and most contacted hospital is Novant Hemby in Charlotte, NC. We provide Blankets, hats to fit, and Inspirational Hearts. Inspirational Hearts are given to the family to bond scent between parent and baby. The mom wears it for 24 hours and brings it back to be in the isolate for a scent from home away from home. 24 hours later they take the other heart home for a scent from the baby at home. We provide items for both everyday and at each holiday. We also provide nationwide packets to families in the NICU To make a donation, please visit our donation link of our website
