I am a NICU baby. I was born 3 months prematurely and went home 90 days later, on my anticipated due date. This cause is near and dear to me. Thank you so much for sharing.

It went well :) the person that was supposed to accept the delivery I guess forgot what day and was not at the hospital but she got me with another person who accepted everything and set it up in the lounge for us. They haven't let us do it ourselves since Dec 2019 cause of covid which sucks but I'm glad they still accept donations from us because they don't from everyone now.
I wasn't able to get pics of the nurses food and them with the spa kits because he said that they were busy when he came in but I did get some messages from some of the families that got a gift bag :) one of them is sending us some stickers from her business that she started, she had a loss also in 2019 and her second son is in the NICU now but doing well :love so that is really nice of her. All around the families love it!!

Just wanted to say that I was a NICU baby as well, as tends to happen with twins. I almost died and I stayed in the hospital much longer than my brother.

We're doing 25 gift bags for the NICU families and 2 gift baskets (that are basically like a baby shower in a bag with different cute stuff), if you are interested in helping the link is here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2PXMNHHMIM3OP?ref_=wl_share

It'll be delivered on July 12 in honor of David's 3rd birthday, can't believe it's already been 3 years.

I'm going to start gathering for this December again soon, I just wanted to say a couple things really quick:

On Oct 5th David's Nightlights became an official registered nonprofit, and I want to thank everyone who has supported this in any way over the past three years. This has been really important to me to do and it constantly amazes me that other people care about making it a success as well, thank you if you've ever donated, shared, or helped with this in any way, and special thanks for those of you who have consistently done things to help this project get where it is today, whether it's helping to build it, give business advice, regularly donating items, making graphics; I will never forget and you will always have a special place in my heart.

So please keep an eye out for more info about this season's giving on Facebook and instagram (@davidsnightlights)!

Secondly, today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, and every year they do a Wave Of Light by lighting a candle starting at 7pm in whatever timezone you're in. So if you could do that that would be awesome, and if you could post a pic of your candle and tag or #davidsnightlights and #waveoflight that would be even better.

May we have many more years of making a difference!
