2015 LGF Chicago Preemie Events


LITTLE GIRAFFE FOUNDATION WISHLIST
November - December 2015

One of the missions of the Little Giraffe Foundation is to support families with babies in the NICU. During the holidays, we offer gift bags that include books and toys to let them know someone is thinking of them. Since our foundation's inception, we have delivered over 5,500 of these such gifts to several Chicagoland hospitals. For the upcoming holiday season we will be reaching 12 local area hospitals.

Please help the Little Giraffe Foundation reach more NICU families by purchasing a toy from our holiday wishlist on amazon.com.

Note: Some of the items are "Add-on Items". As indicated by Amazon, these items can only be purchased with an order totaling $25.00 or more.

 

SHARE YOUR PREEMIE STORY!
November 1-17

In honor of National Prematurity Awareness Month this November, we are asking you to share your preemie story with us!  We will share these stories on November 17th through a virtual scrapbook to honor all of the babies that were born too soon.  These stories help raise awareness and offer support to all NICU families past and present, thank you!
