More NICU Donations

My doorbell rang the other day and my neighbor, Michelle, and her cute little grandson, Lucas, were there. Lucas had these books in his arms and told me they were "for the babies." He was so happy to share them. Thank you, Michelle and Lucas.

We had an Usbourne book party to benefit the NICU and the next two pictures are of books that were purchased from the party for the NICU. We also get more books for the NICU from our hostess benefits. 

This group of books was donated by Krysta Young. All of these will be well loved by the babies in the NICU. Usborne books are very sturdy and last. Thank you Krysta.

 Sharon Hall donated these books. Board books are so wonderful for little hands. They can take some nibbling and still hold up. Thank you, Sharon.

And just like that, we have books once again for the babies. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.

Another way to help our project is to purchase books from this Usborne link as we are currently using the hostess benefits to help buy books for the babies. You buy books that are delivered to your house for your children or grandchildren - or as baby shower gifts, and the hostess rewards help us get books for our NICU babies - a win win for all. Thanks to those of you who have already ordered; we are on our way to getting new books for the babies. 

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
