Donate to Premature babies!

I am a neonatal nurse in Lexington, KY. One of my jobs in the unit is to make each baby a 5x8 bedcard with their name, date of birth, length etc. We have been able to keep up with this project for 8 years, but with our unit busting at the seams with babies lately, we are in need of baby stickers etc for our cards. My hospital does reimburse me somewhat, but the need for things is still there. Some of my co workers will occasionally bring in some half price stickers and paper which I love, but as I said before, we are still in need.

Several years ago I asked for your help, and I was so happy when three people sent me cricut cut baby shapes and scrap blue and pink paper! Would anyone be interested in donating to some of our smallest patients? The parents love it, and so do visitors and staff. Small things like a simple bedcard can make a parents day when they see it at their babies bedside.

If you could help the babies out (please send to below address)

Hi. I am cleaning up and organizing my craft studio right now. I will def put together some things and mail in the next few days. Do I need to assemble into 5x8 cards or do you just want supplies? I am also asking for a card for my new daughter-in-law. I just listed a post. If you have time andcan return the favor, I would appreciate it, but it is not necessary. I will still send in supplies. How precious these sweet babies are!
