Starting life in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit can be difficult on a baby and their caregivers. NICU Connect was built by the mother of a NICU graduate to help ease the stress of having a baby in the NICU.
Our Current Fundraiser:Funds from “The Organized Family” fundraiser will be used to provide families with NICU Connect program materials. This fundraiser supports printing and distribution of NICU Connect visual communication program materials to families who are caring for critically ill infants in a NICU. These educational tools empower caregivers to provide the highest level of care and support for their child during a difficult NICU stay. The Claritas Creative Foundation will receive a 20% donation on all regular priced merchandise and 5% on sale items, all of which will be used for NICU Connect program materials. Shop the fundraiser September 1—November 17. Code: NICUCONNECT
