We were so pleased when one of our Kells’ parents approached us and asked if we would be interested in becoming involved in the Tiny Miracle Foundation. This fund is an initiative of the Jewish General Hospital Auxiliary. They are committed to supporting the most vulnerable and tiniest patients by purchasing vital medical equipment for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
November 17th is World Prematurity Day and Kells’ student council arranged a free dress day to raise money. We raised $365 for the Tiny Miracle Fund.
Furthermore, the Flex crochet class is taking part in an initiative to support the preemies as well. They will be knitting blankets for the babies as a parting gift from the hospital. We purchased yarn in varying shades of purple since it is the colour honouring premature babies. The crochet class is very excited about this important project and we look forward to delivering the cozy blankets to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
As they say at the hospital, “Any child cared for at our NICU is a reason to celebrate.” We feel the same way and look forward to celebrating the tiny miracles with our handmade gifts.
