We just wanted to share what we do since Tiny Hummingbirds came to be in November 2011.
Just this past Saturday we had a team participate in the March For Babies walk supporting the March of Dimes. Our team raised almost $500!! We have been doing that since 2012.
This year will be our 6th year to partner with the March of Dimes in distributing Mother's Day Bags and Father's Day Bags for the local Nicu's. We take bags to WRMC, Willow Creek, Mercy in Rogers and Northwest in Bentonville. These bags contain some things that hopefully help parents while their baby is in the NICU. Some of the items are snacks, drinks, cards, socks, journals, puzzle books, shower gel just to name a few.
We also try and give the babies something at Christmas and have handed our cards at Valentine's Day.
We have had a blood drive, in which we had 20 pints of blood donated to the local Red Cross.
We have done a book drive and blanket drive in which we donated the items to UAMS in Little Rock.
We also reach out to any family that we hear of that has lost a baby, either through miscarriage or stillbirth or if the baby was only here for a little while,
We partnered along with March of Dimes in a balloon release for World Prematurity Day. This event will be an annual event.
We had a banquet fundraiser in which we raised enough money to purchase an Angel Eye Camera and donated it to the UAMS Nicu.
Please consider making a tax deducible donation on Thursday April 6th during ArkansasGives as we try in some small way to make a difference in the lives of others!
