Weʼre raising £200 to help cover the costs of sending hand knitted gifts out to babies in hospital in the uk
- Ipswich, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Around 60,000 babies are born prematurely every year in the UK. That is roughly 1 in 13 babies who will start there journey in a special care baby unit (scbu) or a neonatal intensive care unit (nicu). Chances are you know someone who has a baby who started out in the nicu or scbu.
Having a new baby in hospital is a terrifying and isolating thing. At a time when people feel most alone, it helps to know there are others out there who have been through what you are going through. People who are thinking about you.
Every gift we send out has been lovingly hand made and donated. Each parcel costs around £3.40 to send out. By donating what you can, you can help to keep these gifts completely free to those parents who are going through the worst nightmare of any parent, having a baby in hospital.

It’s a wonderful thing you do, coming from someone whose baby was in Intensive and Special Care for 3 weeks. Thank you and I’m sorry it’s not more.

About the fundraiser
I'm mum to 2 gorgeous boys. My youngest was a micropreemie, born at 24 weeks weighing 1lb10. I started preemie tiny knits to gift forward all the kindness and generosity I was shown by complete strangers when he was born. We have been going one year and sent out over 30 gifts
