First off thank you for visiting our site, I hope you had a chance to look around the rest of the site, for anyone who would like to donate there is a list of some items we are in need of and ways you can help below!

Update as of June 2007 we are stopping (for an undetermined amount of time) the local memory box program in an effort to reach out in other ways to see where we can have the maxium effect in helping people, feel free to provide any feedback or opinions you would like to share by emailing me here
 
 

 
If you are interested in donating, we can use items such as disposable cameras, as for many of the parents this will be their only chance to get photos.
 
Small, medium and large stuffed animals 
 
Micro preemie and preemie size clothes, hat, booties and burial gowns as many parents cannot find small enough clothes to dress their precious babies in.
 
Paper mache boxes
 
Blankets (fleece, crocheted, flannel, silk, etc)
 
Stacking boxes
 
Fabric
 
Scrapbooking paper
 
Paints (preferably acrylic) and paint brushes
 
Stencils
 
Ribbon
 
Rubber stamps and inkpads
 
Hand and foot molding kits (Crayola Model Magic individual packs work well)
 
Small photo albums or frames 
 
Lexmark 32 and 33 ink for printing the list of perintent web sites, the poems etc
 
Blank printable business cards and or greeting cards
 
Letter and colored beads and strech cord to make the infant and mother matching braclets
 
Small notebooks for the mothers to write in. 
 
Safety pins for the awareness cards
 
Nursing pads so 2-4 can be placed in the boxes as many mothers are unprepared to be dealing with leaking after such a traumatic time
 
Mose basket to donate to the hospital for the babies pictures to be taken in 
 
Small nice pillows to use as props to take the babies pictures with
 
Preemie diapers
 
Hot glue gun and glue sticks 
 
Acrylic sealers(spray paint type or paint on)
 
 
Mod Podge sealer
 
Condolence cards
 
Greeting cards used or not (the pictures can be used to decorate the boxes)

Stickers 
  
And any other items I forgot to mention that you think would be comforting/could be used. 
If you wish to send donated items that are heavier the post office has a flat rate box available shipping for it is $8.10  no matter the wieght http://shop.usps.com/cgi-bin/vsbv/postal_store_non_ssl/display_products/productDetail.jsp?OID=4849213 there is also the option of media mail for printed materials (aka books etc) through the post office which is cheaper.
 

Know how to knit , crochet, sew, bead or just like doing crafts? If so you can help!
 
If you would like to help, please consider doing so by making items such as hats, booties, outfits and blankets for the babies  we could also use help with the memory boxes, braclets, website, etc.
We really would appreciate and could use any volunteers, so this means if you are great at building websites, a good writer, whatever your talent if you are willing to help we are more than happy to have you.

Free preemie crochet patterns including easy booties, outfits, caps etc once you get there youll need to scroll down a bit.
