Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and Hand to Hold is kicking off its first official Mother’s Day campaign. Beginning today and lasting through April 30th, when you make a donation of $25 or more, Hand to Hold will send a recipient of your choice a Mother’s Day card with your personalized message. Click here to donate.
On my first Mother’s Day, our 31-week twin girls had been home for about a week. Life was still quite a whirlwind. Despite it being a beautiful day, we stayed in, ordered lunch from our favorite New York style deli, and then I took a much-needed nap. I’d only been parenting for a few days without the help of the nurses and medical staff. It was exhausting, but still wonderful.
Mother’s Day is a very emotional day for NICU parents, parents of preemies, and those who have suffered a loss. As this special day draws closer, we’d love for you to consider honoring a NICU mom or grandmother in your life by making a donation to Hand to Hold. Your gift will ensure families have a Hand to Hold before, during and after the NICU through our comprehensive in-hospital resources and volunteer peer mentoring program.
Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours!
